R+L Carriers Builds Findlay, Ohio, Transportation Complex
The 205-door terminal will include a 5-bay drive-through shop and a 4-lane fuel island. The company expects to start construction in February of 2022, with operations starting in early 2023.
The Ohio Tax Credit Authority approved a Job Creation Tax Credit for the company, according to Regional Growth Partnership-Northwest Ohio (RGP).
“As we continue to assess our demand throughout the country, we have determined a need to allow for capacity in this region and to build another strategic location in Ohio,” said Jeff Haungs, vice president, R+L Carriers.
With headquarters in Wilmington, Ohio, R+L has a fleet of more than 20,000 tractors and trailers, with a nationwide network of over 140 service centers. The company already employs roughly 2,600 people in just Ohio, RGP noted.
“R+L Carriers investment reinforces Ohio’s reputation as a transportation and logistics powerhouse. This newest transportation facility in Findlay will bring nearly 200 new jobs at a strategic location that will build out R+L Carrier’s vast national supply chain network,” said JobsOhio President and CEO J.P. Nauseef.
Findlay-Hancock County Economic Development, the Regional Growth Partnership and JobsOhio worked in collaboration to secure the project.
