On Monday, the media and public were given a tour of Under Armour's new distribution hub outside of Nashville, Tenn. From a square footage standpoint, it is the largest industrial building in Middle Tennessee.
The Baltimore sportswear company's investment in Mt. Juliet totals more than $100 million. During the next five years, Under Armour (NYSE: UA) expects to employ around 1,500 people within these walls. At a ribbon-cutting for the facility Monday, Under Armour CEO Kevin Plank said he anticipates the company to overshoot that employment total.
