A leading third-party logistics provider is taking aggressive steps to attract new business to Northwest Ohio. Keller Logistics has confirmed plans to construct two spec buildings in neighboring counties, with visions of drawing heavy job-creating opportunities tied to advanced manufacturing.
Keller Logistics will soon begin constructing a 70,000 square-foot spec building in Defiance County (Defiance), which is expected to be completed by February 2023. The other planned structure, a 150,000 square foot building in the adjacent Henry County (Napoleon), is scheduled for completion in April 2023.
Both spec buildings are being supported through the Ohio Site Inventory Program (OSIP), an innovative initiative created by JobsOhio to boost competitiveness of the state in competing for economic development projects. The $50 million program offers grants and low-interest loans to support speculative site and building development projects.
Bryan Keller, CEO of Keller Logistics Group, credited the JobsOhio program as a key advantage for developers and communities across the state.
“This gives Northwest Ohio a tremendous opportunity to create new assets which will ultimately attract new businesses,” said Keller, whose Defiance-based logistics company also works in real estate development. “This program mitigates risk and allows us to offer more competitive rates to end users.”
