Imperial Dade, which is based in Jersey City, New Jersey and is a national distributor of disposable food service and janitorial supplies, recently hosted a groundbreaking for a new logistics hub in Baldwin County, Alabama. Once it’s finished, the new 220,000-square-foot building will be located along County Road 49 in Loxley, Alabama.

Imperial Dade said the new logistics hub would support the company’s expanding customer base and continued growth along the Gulf Coast. Imperial Dade’s new facility is set to bring more than $20 million in total investment to Baldwin County while also creating 55 new jobs.

“Loxley is the ideal location for our new logistics hub, which will allow us to expand our operations in this very important region,” said Robert Tillis, CEO of Imperial Dade.

The new logistics hub, developed and owned by I-10 Gulf Coast Logistics Center LLC, will be the first Class-A industrial facility constructed in Baldwin County, with Imperial Dade making the move from its existing Loxley location.

Near Interstate 10, the location will provide access to the entire Gulf Coast market, including the nearby Port of Mobile. The center is also located just south of the new 564,000-square-foot ALDI regional headquarters and distribution center.

Phase two of the development is currently being marketed, offering a total of 250,000 square feet in two additional buildings capable of accommodating tenants as small as 20,000 square feet.

“With warehousing demand increasing along the Gulf Coast, we’re excited to bring this logistics center to Baldwin County,” said Stewart Speed of I-10 Gulf Coast Logistics Center. “Concrete-tilt construction hasn’t been an option for area tenants in the past. We are bringing a new quality level to the market as well as the flexibility to accommodate both smaller distribution users and larger users with tall clear-height requirements. We look forward to building out the park, starting with the Imperial Dade facility.”

Founded in 1935, Imperial Dade serves more than 65,000 customers across the United States and Puerto Rico.
