US denim company Levi Strauss & Co and Workers United are today (13 September) opening a new product depot in Hebron, Kentucky.

The 151,000 square foot depot will receive products arriving from manufacturing facilities around the world, and provide additional storage capacity for the company's nearby distribution centre.

"The facility will create new jobs for the community and deepens Levi Strauss & Co's longtime commitment to the region," the company said.
 
Workers United represents approximately 600 employees at Levi's Hebron distribution centre.
