Hillman Solutions (NASDAQ: HLMN), a supplier of complete hardware solutions, says it will unveil its “state-of-the-art” distribution center in Jacksonville, Florida, which will create 50 new jobs.

The company says the expansion caps a 15-year presence in Jacksonville and will enable Hillman to better service retailers in the Southeast.

The Hillman Group was listed among MDM’s top fastener distributors, with $1.4 billion in 2020 revenue.

“The original Hillman Jacksonville distribution center is barely recognizable today after a multi-million-dollar investment to expand the footprint of 92,000 square feet to its current 190,000 square feet,” said Ben Wilcox, senior director of distribution at Hillman. “The workforce has grown commensurately from nine associates to more than 90 associates and we’re looking to bring on 50 more employees.”

The expansion allows Hillman to modernize its operations enabling even more growth in the future, the company said.

To increase productivity, Hillman uses an artificial intelligence automation system that maximizes efficiencies.

“We incorporated several automated vehicles to reduce the amount of manual labor needed to move inventory,” said Wilcox.

Based in Cincinnati, Ohio, Hillman is a North American provider of complete hardware solutions with more than 26,000 customers.
