Solutions 2 GO, LLC, a specialized video game products distributor, recently announced plans to locate a new facility here, creating up to 40 new jobs by 2016.
The Irvine, Calif.-headquartered company will invest $3.3 million to lease and equip a 196,000 square-foot facility at 7900 Rockville Road in Indianapolis. The facility, which begins full operations this week, will utilize warehouse management software that allows the company to remotely monitor and direct production from its California headquarters.
“Solutions 2 GO is another great company to capitalize on Indy’s proven leadership in the distribution and logistics industry,” Indianapolis Mayor Greg Ballard said in a press release. “Indy’s prime location and proximity to major interstate, air, and rail corridors makes our city the top choice for many national and international companies. We look forward to adding Solutions 2 GO to our thriving business community.”
Solutions 2 GO, which currently employs more than 100 associates across the country, has already begun hiring shipping foremen, returns and e-commerce managers, and production associates.
“Solutions 2 GO provides a depth of experience to publishers looking to get their products in the hands of video game enthusiasts,” Keith Richards, chief financial officer of Solutions 2 GO, said in a press release. “Each member of our core leadership team has more than 20 years experience in this industry. Our experience led us to open this distribution center in Indiana because of its first-rate transportation network. In Indiana we hit the roads or the skies in record time, allowing us to provide a high quality of service to our customers.”
Founded in 2009, Solutions 2 GO distributes video games, software, related hardware, and accessory bundles to retail and e-commerce clients across the country. The company provides special promotions and unique packaging for industry leaders such as Sony PlayStation, Activision, and Nintendo, serving customers including Walmart, Kmart, and Target.
