Walmart Launches New High-Tech Fulfillment Center in Pennsylvania

Walmart has inaugurated a new 1.5 million square-foot high-tech fulfillment center located at 1915 Ebberts Spring Court, Antrim Township, Franklin County. The facility, described as a next-generation center by Walmart’s Senior Vice President of Automation and Innovation, David Guggina, aims to enhance the efficiency of online order deliveries. It is designed to double both the storage capacity and the daily customer order fulfillment rate.

The location was chosen for its close proximity to major metropolitan areas such as Philadelphia, Baltimore, and Washington, D.C. The opening event included participation from Walmart associates, community leaders, and other stakeholders.

This facility is part of a broader expansion that includes similar centers being developed in Illinois, Indiana, and Texas. Additionally, Walmart continues to recruit for full-time, tech-focused positions at this new site, including roles like control technicians, quality audit analysts, and flow managers. Two years prior, Walmart opened another fulfillment center in Southampton Township, Franklin County, measuring 1 million square feet.
