Tech across Ohio - Superior Market Access makes Ohio a Logical Choice for Caterpillar’s New Distribution Center
Caterpillar Logistics, a subsidiary of Caterpillar Inc., recently announced plans to build a new parts distribution center in southwest Ohio, creating new employment opportunities for Ohioans. According to an Associated Press article, the new center in Clayton, Ohio, which is near Dayton, is expected to employ 500 to 600 people. With its sophisticated transportation infrastructure and superior market access, Ohio is a logical site selection for Caterpillar.
This newly announced business investment will span more than 1 million square feet and is expected to cost the company more than $50 million. Construction is expected to begin in early 2010 and be completed in 2011.Caterpillar says the new center in Ohio will eventually replace the company's Indianapolis Regional Distribution facility and assume some work currently performed at Caterpillar's parts distribution center in Morton, Illinois.
Since its inception more than 80 years ago, Caterpillar Inc. has grown to be the world's largest maker of construction and mining equipment, diesel and natural gas engines, and industrial gas turbines. In partnership with their worldwide dealer network, the company delivers products, services and technologies in three principal lines of business: machinery, engines and financial products.
