Hollingsworth Logistics Group, a provider of third-party logistics supply chain solutions, will expand its operations into a 500,000-square-foot facility in Brownstown Charter Township, Michigan. The project is expected to create up to 250 jobs.
According to state officials, the project is expected to generate a total private investment of $17 million, resulting in a $1.5 million Michigan Business Development Program performance-based grant.
“Hollingsworth is proud to invest and grow in Brownstown Charter Township and is grateful for earning the support of the Michigan Economic Development Corporation,” said Steve Barr, Owner and Chairman of Hollingsworth. “This expansion will provide significant employment opportunities in the region and help us to continue to successfully serve our growing customer base.”
With a workforce that is over 80% minority-based, Hollingsworth has a history of employing disadvantaged populations, and works with local organizations like Michigan Works! to hire for entry-level positions. The project aligns with MEDC’s strategic focus industry of mobility and automotive manufacturing and the regional impact industry of logistics.
Brownstown Charter Township has offered to support the project through job fairs and assistance with local permitting and approval processes.
