Avon Plans Distribution Center for Ohio

June 11, 2007

Avon Products, Inc. announced that it has selected Zanesville, OH, as the location for its previously announced state-of-the-art distribution center. Avon will build the new facility on land located at Eastpointe Business Park in Zanesville, approximately 50 miles east of Columbus.

The new facility in Zanesville will employ 500 and will have the capacity to ship 50% of Avon’s U.S. sales volume when fully operational. Avon expects to invest approximately $117 million in capital expenditures relating to the new distribution center.

In January 2007, Avon announced plans to restructure its U.S. distribution operations in order to enhance service to representatives, improve operating efficiencies through new technologies, and achieve other cost savings that can be reinvested in business growth. In line with this, Avon has said that current distribution facilities in Newark, DE, and Glenview, IL will be phased out in mid-2009 and mid-2010, respectively. More info: www.avoncompany.com.
