The ribbon has been cut on Turn5’s newest hub: a 365,000-square-feet fulfillment hub in Lenexa, Ks. that is four times larger than its Paoli headquarters.

On Monday, Kansas Governor Jeff Colyer and Lenexa Mayor Michael Boehm joined cofounders Steve and Andrew Voudouris as they cut the ribbon to the Lenexa Logistics Centre North Building, where the suburban ecommerce company — which sells after-market parts to auto enthusiasts — will begin operations over the next two weeks.

By the end of 2019, Turn5 plans to employ 50 people at the Midwest hub, growing to 100 by 2021.

“Lenexa is the missing piece to the puzzle,” said Steve Voudouris, Turn5’s CEO. “With four centers up and running across the country, 85 percent of customers will be in a two-day delivery zone.”

The Kansas space is the largest fulfillment center owned by Turn5. It also has hubs in Malvern, Pa., Royersford, Pa., and Las Vegas.

In January, Turn5 opened up its suburban Philly headquarters, an $8 million project that is home to some 400 staffers.

“We’re excited about the new offices because they embody the brand,” cofounder Andrew Voudouris told Technical.ly then. “It was designed for us to be a modern working environment.”
