DAS Continues to Expand with Purchase of New Distribution Center in Franklin, Kentucky and Announcement of New Company Leadership

Palmyra, PA (July 2022) – DAS Companies, Inc. has secured a brand new 200,000 square foot distribution center in Franklin, Kentucky. Over the past several years DAS has extended its already robust portfolio of 12,000+ products serving the on-the-go lifestyle to include a licensing agreement with Cummins Inc. that spans a multitude of product categories, the establishment of Legion 9 Brands, and a focused ecommerce strategy.

The dynamic go-to-market strategy of DAS has fueled continued growth, therefore, driving this expansion. This strategically chosen location expands the logistical network of DAS to four states and over 800,000 square feet of warehouse solutions!

The Franklin location will strategically service DAS’ current customer base in Travel Centers, C-Stores, and Electronics & Specialty Retailers. It will also be utilized for its new Legion 9 Brands, a full-service solution-based company that specializes in product development, category management, supply chain, marketing, and retail execution. The additional space will also allow DAS to productively serve its customers with the new-to-market Cummins Licensed Merchandise that is hitting retail locations this summer.

This investment will create over one hundred supply chain jobs in the Franklin, Kentucky area. The new warehouse location will be fully functional by January 2023. To learn more about career opportunities, visit our company website under job opportunities.
