WILL YOU TOUR THIS HOUSE!?
We are very excited to announce that our first event of 2017 will be a tour of the Under Armour Distribution House! This tour will show you how orders are fulfilled for corporate and online customers. This facility receives and processes Under Armour product from across the globe and ships to over 10,000 destinations in the United States and Canada. The Baltimore DH is a fully automated distribution center with over 1.1 million square feet of space. You will see conveyors, pallets, forklifts, shipping equipment and other machinery used to ensure that all orders are received and on their way to the consumer in a timely manner. With the multiple machines operating at the same time, you can expect noise levels to be louder than your typical day at the office. Your tour guide will take us through the distribution process starting in Waving, where orders are received and ending in Shipping, when products leave the building. You will be able to see how the Under Armour teammates ensure quality products are delivered to their customers. We may also be able to tour other areas of their facilities such as the training area, gym and DH&H Café.
Under Armour has been kind enough to offer our Chapter 25% off Brand Fan Passes to shop next door at their Factory House after the tour! The UA Factory House Store at Swan Creek is less than one-half mile from the DH and has the latest in exciting and innovative Under Armour gear. With the holidays behind us, it’s time to shop for ourselves!
