Tractor Supply Opens Navarre, Ohio DC

January 25, 2023

Tractor Supply Company opened its newest and largest distribution center, located in Navarre, Ohio. Tractor Supply executives and Team Members, along with local elected officials, community leaders and neighbors, celebrated the occasion today at a grand opening event.

The Navarre facility will support the company’s continued growth and expansion in the U.S., and represents its first distribution center to open since 2018. Since that time, the company has grown its net sales by more than 70 percent. In 2022, Tractor Supply achieved several major milestones in its history, surpassing more than 2,100 Tractor Supply stores nationwide and 50,000 Team Members. Tractor Supply ranks 294 on the list of Fortune 500 companies.

“The opening of our state-of-the-art distribution center in Navarre is an exciting milestone for Tractor Supply,” said Colin Yankee, executive vice president and chief supply chain officer at Tractor Supply. “Our distribution centers are an essential part of our operations, keeping our stores stocked with everything our customers need for Life Out Here, and delivering online orders directly to our customers. The Navarre facility will not only allow us to better serve our growing customer base in the Ohio and Upper Midwest regions, it will bring 500 additional jobs to the Stark County area. We look forward to being a part of and investing in this community.”

In addition to the official “pallet-cutting” that marked the opening of the facility, Tractor Supply demonstrated its investment in the local community by presenting donations to several local organizations, including Stark County 4-H Youth Development Program, Boys & Girls Club of Massillon and R.G. Drage Career Center FFA.

“Congratulations to Tractor Supply Company on the opening of its newest distribution center in Navarre,” said Ohio Governor Mike DeWine. “Ohio appreciates the company’s investment in jobs and the northeast Ohio community. We look forward to Tractor Supply’s continued growth and success and we are excited about what this economic development project will bring to the region.”

“We are thrilled to welcome Tractor Supply as the newest member of the Navarre community,” said Mayor Robert Benson, Village of Navarre. “In my 28 years as mayor, this is by far one of the largest projects to come to our area, and we are so appreciative of the collaboration and positive economic impact this new distribution center is making and will continue to make for years to come.”

The Navarre distribution center will serve about 250 stores and fill e-commerce orders for online customers in Ohio, Michigan, Minnesota and other parts of the Upper Midwest region. Construction on the 900,000 square-foot building began in May 2021 and was completed in December 2022.
