Leading supply-chain management company CEVA Logistics has announced the construction of its new facility in Tennessee’s Mount Juliet, which will consolidate several facilities into a single location.

The campus, to be known as Beckwith II, is located on the outskirts of Nashville and based in the Mt. Juliet Industrial Park. It will comprise an area of 700,000 sq ft, and is anticipated to employ 1100 workers.

CEVA said the new facility will provide a more efficient, productive and technologically sophisticated environment which will benefit both their employees and customers. The company will combine its two pre-existing Nashville properties into the new site, as well as a network distribution site previously based on Chicago.

The new facility will provide fulfilment, storage, value added services and Vendor Managed Inventory (VMI) for upward of 100 suppliers of CEVA’s customer. It will join the existing 480,000 sq ft Beckwith III CEVA facility on the same campus, and Beckwith I, which is currently used for storage (also at this location).

CEVA Senior Vice President of Logistics in the Americas, Les Grubbs, labelled the campus “significant on many levels”, and said: “This marks an extension of a longstanding relationship with this strategic customer and, thus, a continuation of quality jobs in the Nashville market. Additionally, the facility enables us to provide our customer with a new level of fulfilment technology which will drive efficiencies and help enable their future success.”  

The company already has a strong presence in Tennessee, running a regional cross-dock operation for a leading automative customer in Mt. Juliet, and operating a freight management facility in Nashville.

CEVA will occupy the new facility from mid-September.
