Tractor Supply Co. of Brentwood, Tennessee, officially announced plans Wednesday to build a new $100 million, 900,000-foot distribution center in Mammal.

The company said the facility, expected to open in late 2023, will employ 450 full-time workers and service 250 tractor supply stores. Construction is scheduled to begin in the city’s industrial zone in the middle of this year.

“Tractor Supply is excited to begin work on our 10th distribution center and we look forward to a long and mutually beneficial relationship with the Maumelle community,” CEO Hal Lawton said in a press release. “In support of the Life Out Here strategy, this new distribution center is an important investment to help serve our growing store base and online sales as we build a strong and relevant business for the future.”

The Arkansas Times, citing public documents registered with the city of Mammel, reported the company’s plans on Friday. Distribution center will be set up, which will be the tenth of the company about 121 acres On Champs Boulevard and Jackie Burnett Drive. According to real estate records, Tractor Supply bought the space for $2.5 million from HEA Properties LLC led by Brian Austin.

According to the Arkansas Economic Development Commission, the project qualifies for $1 million from the Quick Portfolio Fund; Seven years of Create Rebate, a program Annual cash discount based on the number of jobs added by the company; tax refund program, which provides sales and use tax refunds on the purchase of taxable building materials and machinery; and Business and Industry Training Scholarship of $50,000.

“Arkansas has a skilled and dedicated workforce ready to meet the needs of Tractor Supply as it embarks on this new expansion,” Governor Asa Hutchinson said in a press release. “We wish the company all the best as they grow and expand in Arkansas, and we’re here to help them however we can.”

The announcement comes just weeks after the Arkansas Business announced plans by Dollar General Corp. in Goodlettsville, Tennessee, to build a $140 million distribution center that would employ 300 people in the Galloway area of ​​North Little Rock.

Tractor Supply said it had worked with JLL Real Estate and Investment Management to secure the site. In 2019, Entergy Arkansas worked with the city to certify the tract as a “choose a site.” The program works with communities as a tool to get project sites ready and to pass this on to site site consultants and corporate leaders looking for a new site. Choose a site that specifically follows high-tech, manufacturing and distribution project candidates by offering a thorough audit of site readiness for new or expanded business.

Other Select Site properties are located in Jefferson County, Little Rock, Magnolia, Newport, Russellville, and West Memphis.

“I am delighted that Tractor Supply is investing in Momelle with its newest distribution center,” said Caleb Norris, Mayor of Mommel. “Tractor Supply’s values ​​clearly complement Maumelle’s vision well and her presence would be a great addition to our community.”

The farm and home supplies retailer operates 34 stores in Arkansas and 2,003 stores across 49 states. With the addition of a distribution center in Navarre, Ohio, due to be completed later this year, Tractor Supply operates nine distribution centers in nine states. It has 46,000 employees.
