More big things are coming to The Wiregrass. This time it happens to be phase two of the Dothan Warehouse expansion that will add 30,000-square-feet and double its trailer parking capacity.
Plans for the newest Dothan Warehouse expansion call for an $8 million investment by the full-service third-party logistics provider.
Again, the expansion will increase overall storage space by 30,000 square feet. The first phase of the project expanded the company’s footprint by 75,000-square-feet. It was valued at $20 million.
Once phase two is complete, Dothan Warehouse expects to add 25 new jobs to the roster along with broadening its capabilities in general.
The need for the Dothan Warehouse expansion is in part due to an increase in the area’s poultry industry.
