Logistics Plus Expands Erie, Pennsylvania Headquarters

07/17/2017
Logistics Plus, Inc., a worldwide supply chain management company, will expand its headquarters in Erie, Pennsylvania. The company plans to create 44 new jobs.

The expanded facility will allow for the handling of all logistics for clients, from order intake to shipping and installation. Logistics Plus has committed to investing at least $1.2 million into the project, which will create 44 new, full-time jobs and retain 123 more positions statewide.

“It’s very gratifying to be able to create good-paying, fun and interesting jobs with a growing, cutting-edge global company right here in Erie, Pennsylvania,” said Jim Berlin, Founder & CEO of Logistics Plus. “Keeping talented people in the Erie area is good for the community and for the local economy.”

Logistics Plus, Inc. received a funding proposal from the Pennsylvania Department of Community and Economic Development for $88,000 in Job Creation Tax Credits to be issued after the new jobs are created. The company has also been encouraged to apply for a $2 million low-interest loan from the Pennsylvania Industrial Development Authority.

“This expansion in the heart of the City of Erie will bring 44 family-sustaining jobs to a location in the center of the city’s downtown,” said Governor Tom Wolf. “My administration has worked closely with Erie to support its growing business climate and this expansion project is another great investment for the region.”

The project was coordinated by the Governor’s Action Team with the assistance of the City of Erie’s Department of Economic and Community Development.
