Orgill to build new world headquarters in Collierville

MEMPHIS, Tenn. (AP) – Hardware and home improvement products distributor Orgill Inc. says it is investing $15 million in a new world headquarters in the Memphis suburb of Collierville.

The company and Gov. Bill Haslam announced Thursday that the new 100,000-square foot office building is expected to create 115 jobs. Construction is expected to begin in 2016, and the company expects to move into the facility in the fourth quarter of 2017.

Orgill distributes hardware and home improvement products to hardware, home improvement and building material retailers. On its website, the company says it employs more than 2,000 people, from truck drivers to distribution center workers. The world headquarters provides support to its six North American distribution centers.

In a news release, Haslam thanked Orgill for its “continued commitment to our state’s dedicated workforce.”
