A national athletic footwear and apparel company is expected to open a state of the art facility soon, right here in Torrance.

Puma plans to start using its new distribution center any day now. It’s located near the corner of Van Ness Avenue and Del Amo Boulevard.

The company finished construction on the facility, which will be used as a large-scale automated storage system. It will be used as a place where apparel and shoes will be shipped and organized. Robots will be handling the apparel as it moves out of the storage location.
