E-Commerce Company VMInnovations to Open Fulfillment Center in Interstate Centre II

Jul 28, 2017
Press Release

Pembroke, Ga. – The Development Authority of Bryan County (DABC) is pleased to announce Lincoln, Neb.-headquartered VMInnovations will be locating in a 419,000-square-foot e-commerce fulfillment center that will be constructed by NorthPoint Development in the Interstate Centre II industrial park in Black Creek.  The project represents over $19 million in investment in the community, and the company has committed to employ 50 within five years.

“Our new location in Bryan County will allow us to expand our capabilities in the Southeastern market.  The decision to locate in Interstate Centre II was driven by several factors, including the great logistics of the area to include the Port of Savannah and the positive business atmosphere in the county that was highlighted by the Freeport exemption for e-commerce fulfillment centers,” stated Zach Knaub, Project Manager, VMInnovations.

VMInnovations, created in 2006, sells a variety of brand-name merchandise at competitive prices in product categories, including consumer electronics, sports and outdoor accessories, baby and kids products, home and gardening supplies, and pool products.  With facilities currently in Nebraska, Nevada, Pennsylvania, and Indiana, the Black Creek fulfillment center will be the company’s first location in the Southeastern United States.

“This project, with its 50 new jobs and over $19 million investment, is a great win for Bryan County,” said DABC Chairman Derrick Smith.  “We welcome VMInnovations and NorthPoint to Interstate Centre II and look forward to working with them as we continue to grow jobs and investment in the community.”

NorthPoint, a privately-held development firm based in Kansas City, Mo., plans to begin construction immediately on the facility.  VMInnovations will be operational in the new facility in April 2018.

Alyce Thornhill, senior project manager for the Georgia Department of Economic Development, worked with the DABC on this project.  

“The need for businesses to become more efficient in the e-commerce world is increasing,” said Georgia Department of Economic Development Commissioner Pat Wilson.  “VMInnovations is choosing Georgia to meet the needs of their Southeastern customers, and I know Bryan County and Georgia’s world-class logistics network are perfectly positioned to support its growth.”
