Burris Logistics, a provider of warehousing and distribution systems for frozen-food manufacturers, will construct a distribution center in Rocky Hill, Connecticut, with a $65 million investment, according to the Connecticut governor's office. More than 220 new full-time jobs and 300 construction jobs are expected with the project. Construction is planned in two phases, the first a 250,000-square-foot refrigeration warehouse and distribution space for BJ's Wholesale Club; a second phase, calling for an additional 250,000 square feet, is scheduled to begin in 2011. The state has provided more than $3 million in tax credits contingent on job creation and the company's commitment to remain in the location for a minimum of 15 years.
