GXO Logistics, Inc. is celebrating the expansion of its partnership with leading designer, manufacturer and marketer of branded small kitchen appliances and personal care and beauty products and accessories Conair with the completion of its new distribution hub in Hagerstown, Md. Conair will host a ribbon-cutting ceremony at the facility that will be attended by business leaders from Conair, its private equity partners and project manager Grant Thornton as well as Maryland state officials, including Governor Wes Moore, and GXO business leaders, including Americas and Asia Pacific President Jorge Guanter. The distribution center will have a total of approximately 2.1 million square feet, making it the largest such facility in Maryland and the largest in the nation for small appliances.

GXO began operations in March to support Conair's portfolio of brands spanning personal care and small kitchen appliances, cookware, hairbrushes & accessories, cosmetic bags and travel accessories, including brands such as Cuisinart, Conair, BaByliss, Scunci and Waring. The facility will create approximately 700 new full-time jobs over the next 10 years. By locating the facility close to major consumer markets, Conair will reduce its transportation miles by 60% and cut its distribution operations' annual CO2 emissions by more than 2,000 metric tons -- the equivalent of taking approximately 420 automobiles off the road for an entire year.
