Today Under Armour cut the ribbon on its new 1.3-million sq. ft. Omni Distribution House (ODH) at Tradepoint Atlantic, the site of the former Bethlehem Steel at Sparrows Point. ODH began operation in February and has more than 600 employees.

Special guests at the ribbon cutting included Under Armour Chairman and CEO Kevin Plank, Maryland Governor Larry Hogan, Baltimore County Executive Johnny Olszewski, Under Armour President and Chief Operating Officer Patrik Frisk, Under Armour Chief Supply Chain Officer Colin Browne, Under Armour VP of North America Distribution Houses Billy Werner, Baltimore Ravens Head Coach John Harbaugh, and NFL Hall of Fame Member and Businessman Ray Lewis.

Plank said 23 football fields can fit into ODH and that walking a lap in the building is more than a mile. He noted that Under Armour employees walk more than 10 miles a day around the facility. ODH features 35 active dock doors, 19 pits and levelers, two drive-in doors, 14 miles of conveyor, 62,000 sq. ft. of offices space, a fitness center, a half-court basketball court, and break rooms.

ODH is Under Armour’s most modern distribution warehouse to date and was built to handle future growth. It can process 100,000 orders a day and Under Armour is hoping to get that number up to 250,000 orders a day.

Under Armour’s distribution facility in Curtis Bay, which sits almost directly on the opposite side of the Patapsco River, remains open and unchanged with the opening of ODH.

Under Armour is headquartered at Tide Point in Locust Point and is planning a future campus in Port Covington.

ODH hosted many of Under Armour’s nearly 3,000 Baltimore-area employees for Armour Day following the ribbon cutting. Armour Day is a day of service for the company in which teammates participated in giveback activities benefiting 20 community partners. In 2019, Under Armour will have 24 Armour Day celebrations spanning 14 countries, with teammates coming together from 30 cities.

Tidepoint Atlantic is converting the former 3,100-acre Bethlehem Steel at Sparrows Point into a “global logistics park.” Tenants include FedEx, Amazon, Gotham Greens, Harley-Davidson, Perdue Agribusiness, Volkswagen Group of America, and Atlantic Forest Products. The site will continue to develop and will eventually have a retail shopping center.

Construction continues to convert the 3,100 sq. ft. former Bethlehem Steel into the Tradepoint Atlantic Global Logistics Park.
