A logistics company affiliated with online retailer Shein plans to open a distribution center in Whitestown that will employ up to 500 full-time workers, the city announced Wednesday night.
Style Link Logistics LLC plans to spend $3.5 million to open the facility in 65 Commerce Park Building 4, 5402 E. 500 S. The facility is just east of Interstate 65 and north of Meadowview Drive.
The center will provide returns-processing and fulfillment services for Shein and several other major brands.
“We are excited to add Style Link Logistics LLC to the expanding list of companies choosing Whitestown,” said Whitestown Town Council President Clinton Bohm in written remarks. “The hundreds of jobs they are bringing is welcomed news in our community.”
The Whitestown Town Council on Wednesday approved a four-year personal property tax abatement for EC Best Service Inc., an affiliate of Style Link Logistics.
The abatement agreement said employees at the facility will make an average wage of $16 per hour.
The abatement is expected to save the company up to $98,000, while providing $140,000 in personal property taxes to Boone County and $600,000 in local income taxes.
