Spartan Logistics, a Columbus, Ohio regional supply chain solutions company, is pleased to announce the opening of their newest facility in Greenwood, Indiana. The dedicated operation in a 124,000 square foot facility located at 642 Chaney Avenue will bring over 50 jobs to the city.
The virgin building was built in 2017 speculatively, but the Spartan Logistics lease completes the full lease of the building. The 232,000 square foot facility on 30 acres was acquired by Pinchal & Company, a privately owned real estate investment company that focuses on development, acquisition, operation and portfolio management throughout the United States. The opening of Greenwood positions Spartan to cover the entire Midwest with Indiana locations in Greenwood and Marion. In addition, Spartan Logistics owns or operates nearly 3,000,000 square feet of prime warehouses in Ohio, Arkansas, Missouri, and the Carolinas.
“We are very committed to expansion and being where our clients need us, and the Indianapolis region is one of the best locations for distribution across the Midwest. Throughout Spartan’s 30 year history, our growth has been rooted in the organically expanding with our partners,” said Steve Harmon, President of Spartan Logistics. “This is the ideal location for our return to the Indianapolis market due to its great access, building design and local amenities.”
Local General Manager, Steven Pluth, praised the workforce available in the Greenwood market, “Despite low unemployment, I am thrilled with the quality of people who have joined our team to make this operation a success.” It is the mission of Spartan Logistics to provide great service, to happy customers, resulting in full buildings, staffed by passionate team members.
