Intelligrated, a material handling company, said Monday it would double the size of its Mason, Ohio, headquarters and add 200 jobs.
The announcement was made at Mason with Ohio Governor John R. Kasich in attendance.
Intelligrated said it would add 200 new technical and engineering positions in research and development, system design, and customer service. The company also said it would build a 60,000- to 90,000-square-foot facility in Mason to support its growth plans.
Intelligrated said its expansion is made possible by a $15 million incentive package from the state of Ohio and city of Mason. Final approval of those packages is pending, and Intelligrated's expansion plans are contingent upon their approval.
The incentives are likely to include an extension of Intelligrated's existing Job Creation Tax Credit, state and local loans, a property tax abatement, and a grant from the state, Intelligrated said.
"We aim to be the most technologically advanced player in the material handling industry. To achieve this, we need an operation that houses the best mechanical, software, and systems talent in the world," said Chris Cole, CEO of Intelligrated, in a statement. "These incentives will directly support these efforts, help us create and keep more high-quality technical jobs in Ohio, and advance Mason as a strategic hub of our nation's logistics network."
