National beauty retailer locating fulfillment center in Central Indiana, adds 500+ jobs

GREENWOOD, Ind. (April 10, 2014) — Lt. Governor Sue Ellspermann joined executives from ULTA, Inc. (NASDAQ:ULTA), the nation’s largest beauty retailer, today to announce the company’s plans to locate a cosmetic fulfillment and distribution center here, creating up to 537 new jobs by 2018.

The Bolingbrook, Ill.-based company, which offers a combination of more than 20,000 prestige and mass beauty products through ULTA Beauty retail stores and Ulta.com, will invest $51.6 million to lease and equip a 670,000 square-foot facility in Greenwood. This will be ULTA’s first Indiana fulfillment center, which is expected to start shipments in summer 2015.

“Indiana is proud to welcome the ULTA distribution facility to our growing list of logistics centers operating throughout our state,” said Ellspermann. “Our central location and transportation infrastructure make us an ideal site for many companies to serve stores and customers in all parts of the U.S. Our business-friendly tax and regulatory policies plus our available workforce help us successfully compete for businesses that are looking to expand or relocate. And all of this means jobs for Hoosiers.”

Founded in 1990, ULTA currently operates 675 retail stores nationally, including 13 in Indiana, that offer one-stop shopping for prestige, mass and salon products, including salon services. The company employs more than 19,000 associates across the country with more than 300 in Indiana. In addition to its new Indiana fulfillment center, ULTA has three other distribution centers located in Illinois, Arizona and Pennsylvania that support both its retail and e-commerce business.

“Everyone at ULTA Beauty is extremely pleased to expand our presence in Indiana and open our newest distribution center in Greenwood,” said Mary Dillon, chief executive officer of ULTA. “The community will be a great fit for us as we build an operation that furthers our ability to meet the needs of our guests and provide a terrific experience. We are thrilled to be a part of Greenwood’s economic growth and look forward to being an active member of the business community.”
