New Balance’s new 350,000-square-foot automated processing facility will be located in the Speedway Industrial Park and will create more than 150 new jobs in Wilson County.

This new state-of-the-art facility will ensure we can continue to provide world-class customer service and achieve our strategic growth goals. We greatly appreciate the tremendous support we’ve received at the local and state level and look forward to joining the Wilson County business community,” said Dave Wheeler, Chief Operating Officer for New Balance.

The facility is expected to be completed in late summer 2023.
