National auto parts retailer O’Reilly Auto Parts will be bringing at least 300 employees over the next few years to a recently purchased distribution facility in Devens.
The Missouri-based retailer plans to relocate its Northeast Distribution Center from Lewiston, Maine, to a 370,500-square-foot warehouse facility in late summer or early fall 2014, according to the company said.
O’Reilly subsidiary Ozark Automotive Distributors Inc. paid $20.7 million for the building at 15 Independence Dr. to Hackman Capital Partners, Oak Tree Capital and Calare Properties, according to deed records. The deal was closed Sept. 3.
