Signet Jewelers has expanded its facility for distributing non-merchandise items like jewelry boxes and other store supplies.

The expansion adds 56,000 square feet to the Barberton, Ohio, center, bringing its total space to 134,000 square feet. The move consolidates all the non-merchandise supply needs for Signet’s approximately 3,000 US stores into one central location, the company explained this week.

“This expansion is vitally important to Signet’s continued success and enables us to configure an ideal space to best meet the needs of our business and our team,” said Bryan Morgan, Signet’s chief operations officer. “It is an initiative that will further cultivate the growth of Signet as a company nationwide.”

Enlarging the warehouse has tripled its available inbound and outbound capacity, the jeweler reported. The move will also enable the company to increase employment at the facility from 40 to 58 workers by the end of the year, and add approximately 80% more jobs over two years.
