Tapestry is going big out West.

The parent company of Coach, Kate Spade New York and Stuart Weitzman, is building a 788,000-sq.-ft. fulfillment center in North Las Vegas, Nevada. The center is expected to be completed next year.

The project is being designed for LEED Gold certification. It will be partially powered by a solar array on the roof and feature innovative landscaping to minimize water usage. Energy-efficient lighting will be used throughout the facility, which will include electric vehicle charging stations.

The North Vegas facility will leverage some of the latest advancements in materials handling equipment technology, including a goods-to-person system. The system is designed to increase efficiency, speed and storage capacity through automation and interaction with management systems to optimize the allocation processes. Serving Coach and Kate Spade, the facility is designed to distribute an annual 22.2 million units and hold 4 million units in inventory for both retail and e-commerce.

“The new North Las Vegas Fulfillment Center is another example of the power of Tapestry’s unique platform, which allows us to scale innovation across our brands and channels and support continued growth,” said Joanne Crevoiserat, CEO of Tapestry. “We are delighted to join the North Las Vegas community with this facility which will include cutting-edge technology solutions that enable us to better serve our West Coast customers.”
