FAIRFIELD, OHIO—Veritiv Corporation, a leading North American distribution solutions company, with corporate headquarters in Atlanta, has selected Gilmore Pointe in Fairfield, OH, as the new home for the company’s operational support group.
The estimated 72,000 square feet space will host approximately 400 of Veritiv’s customer service, credit, IT, and finance professionals who are currently located in the Loveland, OH area.
“As we have asserted since the formation of our company, Veritiv is committed to Greater Cincinnati for the future. For many years, we have found the area an ideal market for exceptional talent to support our company’s operations and our customers. This move reaffirms our long-term commitment to the area, and we look forward to contributing to the local economy and community in Fairfield and Greater Cincinnati,” says Veritiv chairman of the board and chief executive officer Mary Laschinger.
The Greater Cincinnati area is home to approximately 520 Veritiv employees, including a large distribution center in Northern Kentucky. In total, the company employs more than 600 people in the State of Ohio.
Veritiv’s new Fairfield office building, owned by Cincinnati Financial Corporation, is located at the Gilmore Road and I-275 interchange. There are several shopping centers, restaurants, and a major hospital located nearby. The company will commence work to build out the space immediately and is currently scheduled to begin moving employees into the facility in early fall 2016.
“We are very excited to welcome Veritiv to Fairfield. It is a great addition to the Fairfield business community. We’re pleased that the company is maintaining a major presence in the region,” says City of Fairfield mayor Steve Miller.
“We are always happy to see one of our local companies make a long-term commitment in our region,” adds Kimm Coyner, managing director, project management & JobsOhio for REDI Cincinnati. “Greater Cincinnati has the right mix of skilled employees to help a company like Veritiv truly thrive.”
Veritiv executives partnered with the City of Fairfield and the Regional Economic Development Initiative (REDI) Cincinnati to secure the new location. The Fairfield property met many of the company’s requirements including proximity for current employees, opportunity for potential future growth, and access to the Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky International Airport.
