Ferrero expands US operations with new distribution facility

Ferrero USA has expanded its confectionery operations with a new distribution centre in Goodyear, Arizona, a suburb of Phoenix.

The facility at 3600 Cotton Lane is 643,798 square feet and will be operational later this month, creating 50 jobs for the area.

Furthermore, recent months, Ferrero has expanded its North American headquarters in New Jersey, opened a new distribution centre in Pennsylvania, and assumed management of two manufacturing plants in Bloomington and Franklin Park, Illinois.

The Goodyear facility adds capacity for Ferrero to distribute its growing portfolio of brands, including Butterfinger, Baby Ruth, and Crunch, throughout North America. Over time, the facility will distribute other Ferrero brands, including Ferrero Rocher, Nutella, Tic Tac and Kinder, to support overall company growth.

“Ferrero is investing in our presence and business in the U.S.,” said Paul Chibe, President and CEO, Ferrero North America. “We’re introducing new brands and innovations, hiring top talent, and opening state-of-the-art facilities like this new Goodyear distribution center, all of which will help us continue to fuel the confectionery category.”

“I am very pleased to welcome Ferrero USA as we work together to bring the Ferrero passion for quality, creativity, and innovation to life in Goodyear,” said Mayor Georgia Lord. “Ferrero’s new location in our city helps to build a stronger community and provides job opportunities for our residents and the West Valley.”

“The rapid development of our supply chain helps drive strong growth for Ferrero,” said Luca Robbiano, Vice President, North America Supply Chain for Ferrero. “Our new facilities in Pennsylvania and now Arizona represent important milestones in the expansion of our logistics capabilities in the market.”

“We’re excited about the expansion of a global leader like Ferrero to Greater Phoenix,” says Chris Camacho, President and CEO, Greater Phoenix Economic Council. “With the continued growth in this part of the region, residents have new employment opportunities that are improving our regional economy and offering an enhanced quality of life.”

DHL Supply Chain North America will provide warehouse services for Ferrero’s new distribution centre, including shipment consolidation, packaging, distribution, and inventory management.
