The DENNIS Distribution Center

The DENNIS Distribution Center

In January 2023, we launched the DENNIS Distribution Center in Fort Worth, Texas, a culmination of years of dedicated planning and collaboration by multiple teams across our organization. Over the last hundred years, we’ve grown our company to match our expanding customer base, which is located throughout the US. In the more recent past, we have also integrated several other uniform providers into the DENNIS universe, making DENNIS a true company of families, including AA Uniform, Larose School Uniforms and Mills Uniform, all representing strong models of business with dedicated customers in different areas of the country. To facilitate our continued growth and expanded service to our school partners, we moved our main decoration department and fulfillment hub from our original Portland warehouse to Texas, a more centralized location for our overall customer base. Fort Worth is also conveniently located on several major shipping lines, meaning that our new location can provide shoppers with faster fulfillment and delivery timelines.  

At more than three times larger than our previous warehouse, the DENNIS Distribution Center also allows for a much more streamlined workspace. We are able to utilize fast-moving order picker forklifts that save our warehouse team time and effort as they work hard to pick and fulfill orders through the year. We’re thrilled to be the only uniform provider in the country with this type and size of state-of-the-art facility. 

By the Numbers

  • 129,000 total square footage – almost three acres!
  • 25 loading bay docks for delivery and shipping
  • Six loading dock levelers to allow for different heights of trucks
  • 130,000 shelves full of uniforms
  • 19,000 square foot decoration area – plenty of room for embroidery and logo development
  • 100% climate-controlled building design for the wellbeing of our hardworking staff

We’re happy to employ team members for the DENNIS Distribution Center primarily from the Fort Worth area, making our new facility a stronger location as we extend our roots into the local community as we’ve done in Portland over the last 103 years. We currently operate multiple DENNIS retail stores in Texas, including San Antonio, Houston, Dallas and Fort Worth.

With more than 35 stores in 19 states across the nation, our home office in Portland and our exciting new distribution center in Fort Worth, we’re thrilled to continue growing and providing even more efficient service and top-quality products to our school families and the students who wear our uniforms every day. We look forward to a successful 2023-2024 school year and the many more that will follow.
