A&R Logistics Invests $3.9 Million In Second Jeffersonville, Indiana, Operations Center

A&R Logistics Inc., a provider of dry bulk transportation and logistics, plans to expand its operations In Jeffersonville, Indiana. The company plans to create up to 32 new jobs by 2018. The company will invest $3.9 million to lease and equip 175,000 square feet of warehouse and industrial space in the River Ridge Commerce Center Enterprise Zone.

Founded in 1969, A&R Logistics provides bulk logistics solutions for customers in the chemical and plastics industries. The company offers a variety of transportation and logistics solutions through bulk transportation, logistics and 3PL, transloading, packaging, warehousing and end-to-end transportation management. The new facility, which is nearly 100,000 square feet larger than the company’s existing Jeffersonville operations at 4800 Keystone Blvd., will allow the company to expand its services to multinational companies.

“After years of significant growth, our current 80,000-square-foot warehouse and trucking facility in Jeffersonville is simply too small to meet our projected future development,” said Richard Mitchell, president of A&R Logistics Inc. “We were happy to find another location in Jeffersonville and are looking forward to moving to the River Ridge Commerce facility, which will be double the size of our current space.”

“Indiana’s stable business climate is encouraging growth here in the Hoosier State,” said Victor Smith, Indiana Secretary of Commerce. “With a balanced budget, triple-A bond rating and corporate taxes on a reduction schedule, companies like A&R Logistics can be assured that Indiana is the best place to expand their business and hire hardworking Hoosiers.”

As an incentive, Indiana Economic Development Corporation offered A&R Logistics Inc. up to $300,000 in conditional tax credits based on the company’s job creation plans. These tax credits are performance-based, meaning until Hoosiers are hired, the company is not eligible to claim incentives. The city of Jeffersonville supports this project through the River Ridge Commerce Center Urban Enterprise Zone at the request of One Southern Indiana.
