Davidson Logistics, which specializes in the aerospace industry, plans to establish a new multi-million dollar logistics facility in Bridgeton Missouri. The project is expected to create roughly 200 jobs in St. Louis County.
The company will build hundreds-of-thousands of square feet of new and remodeled warehouse and office space, and has already started remodeling a former pharmaceutical manufacturing complex into a new, state-of-the-art warehouse.
"Remodeling of the new facility will create more than 300,000 square feet of warehouse space which our company needs to continue growing," said Davidson Logistics founder and CEO, Don Davidson, Jr.
Davidson Logistics plans to start phase two of its expansion within the next 2-3 years which includes investing $30 to $40 million in a new 500,000 square foot state-of-the-art logistics center next to its existing facility in Bridgeton.
"The logistics industry continues to be a growing part of our regional economy," added Davidson. "With so many large firms in the area and a good transportation network in place, St. Louis and Bridgeton are an ideal spot for us to expand."
Davidson Logistics specializes in the aerospace industry and counts as one of its largest customers, Boeing, which has numerous manufacturing plants and offices in metro St. Louis. Other customers include General Electric, General Motors, and numerous other companies.
