Maryland Company Chooses Vandalia for Warehouse Site
VANDALIA -- A Baltimore, Md., manufacturer with a need to expand its logistical footprint in the Midwest has selected Vandalia as the site for a warehouse operation. Independent Can, a leading manufacturer of specialty metal packaging and metal lithography, will build a 98,500-square-foot facility at Stonequarry Crossings on Vandalia’s west end.
The State of Ohio must first approve an incentive package, but city officials are optimistic about the news.
“We’re very excited to welcome Independent Can to Vandalia,” said Rob Anderson, Vandalia city manager. “This is a company that is extremely well-managed, and will be a great fit to our business community.”
Executive Vice President Robert McClelland said the company considered sites throughout the Midwest but determined that Vandalia offered them the best opportunity with a logistical advantage.
“Vandalia gives us a location well-situated between our Maryland headquarters and our other operational facility in Fort Madison, Iowa,” McClelland.
McClelland said Vandalia’s proximity to Interstates 70 and 75 will allow the company to better serve its client base. He also pointed to the area’s reputation as a business-friendly climate as a tipping point in the decision process.
“In researching our options, we looked for a community that we felt would offer us the best opportunity to grow,” McClelland said. “We’ve heard great things about the support systems in place to drive economic development in Montgomery County, and we’re looking forward to the opportunity to work with County leaders as we contemplate future growth.”
The planned warehouse operation will employ 12 people to start with the potential for more jobs if additional functions and capabilities are added to the operation. The company employs 270 in various strategic locations across the country.
Located on Vandalia’s west end, Stonequarry Crossings is a business development created in 2005 with the purchase of 200 acres of land bordering the Airport Access Road and Peters Pike. Companies that have located operations to the site include Manufactured Assembly Corporation, Carter Logistics and most recently, White Castle.
