Supplements and natural health products supplier iHerb Inc. plans to open a new, 242,200-sq-ft distribution hub in Easton, PA in response to an uptick in global demand, the company said in a press release Wednesday. 

The e-commerce firm currently operates three other distribution centers in California, Kentucky, and Illinois. An international center is slated to open soon in South Korea. 

“The Lehigh Valley – in particular, Easton – made perfect sense for iHerb’s next distribution and fulfillment location as we continue to expand our customer base rapidly,” Mark Hoffmann, senior vice president of operations, said in a statement. “This location will allow iHerb to reach a broad portion of the U.S. with fast delivery times and excellent customer service, further demonstrating the continued importance of the Lehigh Valley area as one of the country’s top logistics hubs.”

iHerb’s new climate controlled facility is strategically located near the Air Cargo hub of New York. The company plans to hire about 130 new workers when the facility opens and said the total headcount of the facility may reach 300 people in the coming years. 

About 30,000 products are available on iHerb’s website.
