The tax breaks to bring a grocery distribution center to Findlay are now official. The state will give McLane Company a $3.6 million job creation tax credit. The company is also eligible for property tax breaks from Findlay’s Community Reinvestment Area. Mayor Lydia Mihalik says that could be worth between $2 million and $3 million.
McLane is a grocery supplier for convenience stores, drugstores, and chain restaurants. It will pay $500,000 for infrastructure improvements on a site off of County Road 212. They’ll also pay another $100,000 for workforce development programs at Millstream Career Center.
The company says the average wage at the facility will be around $57,000 a year plus benefits. The $38 million dollar facility is expected to open in 2016 across the street from the Lowe’s Distribution Center. It could eventually employ up to 425 people.
