Incora Plans Distribution Hub in Henry County, Georgia
According to Henry County Development Authority, Incora, formerly Wesco Aircraft and Pattonair, will be expanding into a wing of a Spec Building inside the Southern Gateway at Lambert Farms Park developed by PNK. The expansion is expected to create 70 jobs. Wesco has two facilities in Georgia, and this will be the company’s first expansion in Georgia.
“Incora has decided it is important to expand our presence near Atlanta, Georgia. We will build a 250,000 square foot state of the art distribution center in a new facility located in Henry County,” said Incora CFO T. J. Gallagher. “This new, larger distribution center in McDonough will include significant capabilities for safely handling a range of products for aerospace and other industries.”
“We are grateful to our partners at Incora for choosing Georgia for this expansion,” said Deputy Commissioner for the Georgia Department of Economic Development’s Global Commerce division Scott McMurray. “This project is a testament to our highly skilled workforce, trained by our university and technical college partners, and to our top-notch logistics network. As the No. 1 state for aerospace manufacturing attractiveness, we look forward to continuing to provide Incora with the assets they need to create opportunities and maintain long-term success in Henry County.”
“Henry County is thrilled about the expansion of Incora. In addition to the new jobs and investment into the local economy during a global pandemic, this announcement speaks to the strength of our established industries,” said Chairman for the Henry County Development Authority Pierre Clements. “Henry County is primed for success in the Aerospace industry given our central location to Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport and other major aerospace centers including Robins Airforce Base and Dobbins Air Reserve base.”
Beginning with a strong foundation in aerospace and defense, Incora also utilizes its supply chain expertise to serve industrial manufacturing, marine, pharmaceuticals and beyond. Incora incorporates itself into customers' businesses, managing all aspects of supply chain from procurement and inventory management to logistics and on-site customer services.
