Univar Solutions, a leading global chemical and ingredient distributor and provider of value-added services to customers across a wide range of industries, plans to expand its Shared Service Center of Excellence in Dublin, Ohio. The project is expected to create 225 new jobs by 2022.

The company, which currently employs 313 full-time employees in Dublin, plans to expand its existing facility by more than 30,000 square feet.

“Expanding our Shared Service Center of Excellence is a strategic priority behind our mission to streamline, innovate and grow,” said Mark Fisher, President, Univar Solutions USA. “The Columbus Region’s strong talent pool and collaborative business community are integral to Univar Solutions concentrating talent to one location and creating more value for our customers, suppliers and employees.”

“Univar’s expansion comes after its acquisition of Nexeo earlier this year, facilitating a consolidation that will bring 225 new jobs to Dublin,” said Dana Saucier, Vice President and Head of Economic Development, JobsOhio. “We’re excited Univar chose the Columbus Region’s talent to significantly grow operations that will support the chemical industry’s largest transportation fleet.”

“We are thrilled that Univar Solutions is expanding in Dublin and we look forward to developing a deep relationship with the leadership team,” said Colleen Gilger, Economic Development Director, the City of Dublin. “The company’s recent acquisition and subsequent investment demonstrates its confidence in Dublin’s highly talented workforce and accessibility to key U.S. markets.”
