The Home Depot (NYSE: HD), Atlanta, will open two new distribution centers in Perth Amboy, New Jersey, over the next 12 months to “support the growing demand for flexible customer delivery options,” the company said.

The expansion is projected to bring more than 400 jobs to the tri-state area, including full- and part-time positions. The company currently operates six distribution centers across New Jersey, New York and Connecticut.

“Our customers have varying needs – from DIYers renovating a room in their home to professional contractors on job sites to institutional business customers overseeing maintenance and repair operations,” said Kyle Dennis, vice president of supply chain development. “Ongoing investments to our supply chain network help us deliver on our Pro and DIY customers’ changing expectations.”
