Amazon plans to establish a $5 million regional distribution center in Findlay, Ohio. The project is expected to create 160 jobs.
The spec building site was developed in partnership with JobsOhio, Regional Growth Partnership, City of Findlay, Ohio Department of Transportation, and Hancock Regional Planning Commission. Amazon is expecting to be able to have its operations up and running by this summer.
“We worked with our local, regional, and state partners to leverage resources to construct a facility that would allow for many types of tenants,” said Tim Mayle, Director of Findlay-Hancock County Economic Development. “Many project leads come across our desks that require zoning, roads, water, sewer, gas, and electric to all be in place. Thankfully Humble Robinson invested in a spec building. Most communities have utilities, few have a spec building.”
According to Findlay-Hancock County Economic Development, Humble Robinson Development and the usual members of the “Findlay Formula” began planning for a spec building in 2017. The City Planning Commission approved the site plan for a tenant to begin operating this summer.
“The site location along with a business-friendly community attracted us to build the spec building,” said Jerry Robinson, Managing Partner of Humble Robinson. “Findlay is one of the fastest-growing communities in NW Ohio. Their recognition as the Top Micropolitan in the United States reflects the investments made year after year by business.”
