Local officials and Campbell Soup representatives officially broke ground on the site of a new distribution center Tuesday. The $44 million, 740,000 square foot Campbell Soup facility should be up and running in about a year. During the event, Campbell vice president of supply chain Mark Cacciatore told the Courier Findlay’s location next to I-75 and near the CSX rail yard in North Baltimore made the location appealing.
The company is building the center south of Hancock County Road 212 near the McLane Distribution Center. Cacciatore says Campbell can distribute products across the entire nation from the Findlay location.
Joe Needham is the director of food and agribusiness for JobsOhio. He says the project almost didn’t happen because the land needed environmental remediation. The agency helped get that obstacle taken care of, clearing the way for the project.
