The 1.3-million-square-foot facility will be the sportswear company’s fourth distribution center in the US and the second in the surrounding area of its headquarters in Baltimore. The facility will feature state-of-the-art equipment and systems to optimize the company’s direct-to-consumer business. Under Armour plans to open the Sparrows Point center in the summer of 2018 and is expected to employ 1,000 employees.

"We take great pride in collaborating with Governor Hogan, Secretary Gill, Baltimore County Executive Kamenetz, Tradepoint Atlantic and the many other state and local officials who share our commitment to create economic and job opportunities for the greater Baltimore community and Maryland as a whole," said Under Armour Founder and CEO Kevin Plank. "The new Distribution House will be a top-notch service engine for our e-commerce business to deliver the right product, to the right place at the right time to our growing consumer base and athletes around the world."
