Intelligrated, provider of automated material handling solutions, broke ground near the site of its Mason, OH headquarters for a new 108,000-sq.-ft. building to accommodate a planned expansion in engineering, customer service and R&D staffing and testing facilities. The building will accommodate 450 associates and is scheduled for completion in October 2012.
The expansion is made possible by an incentive package from the state of Ohio and the city of Mason to support local job growth. Valued at approximately $15 million, the package includes a combination of Intelligrated’s existing Job Creation Tax Credit, state and local government loans, property tax abatement and a state of Ohio grant.
“Today’s groundbreaking is a milestone in Intelligrated’s ongoing growth,” said Chris Cole, Intelligrated’s CEO. “The new building will help us continue to expand our footprint, grow our technical staff and create advanced productivity solutions. We appreciate the incentives from the state of Ohio and the city of Mason which help support our expansion.”
