Cincinnati, OH—Intelligrated, a leading a leading North American-based, single-point provider of automated material handling solutions with operations in the U.S., Canada, Mexico and Brazil, is celebrating the grand opening of its 122,000-square-foot headquarters expansion.
Located in Mason, Ohio, the facility has a combined area of 262,000 square feet accommodating its ongoing increase in engineering, research and development staffing.
The year-long construction project was made possible by a financial incentive package from the state of Ohio and the city of Mason to support local job growth. Over the past year, Intelligrated added more than 160 employees in the state of Ohio and 275 employees company-wide. In addition, the company plans to add 150 more employees by the end of 2013.
“The state-of-the-art facility is designed to attract and retain world-class talent,” says Intelligrated chief executive officer Chris Cole. “We appreciate the incentives from the state of Ohio and the city of Mason that allows us to expand our footprint, increase our technical staff and continue to meet an increasing demand for innovative automated material handling solutions.”
The grand opening is a milestone in Intelligrated’s ongoing development as one of the most technologically-advanced players in the material handling industry. In addition to its corporate headquarters, Intelligrated has expanded facilities in Texas and Illinois within the past 12 months.
“Intelligrated is yet another example of a successful business continuing investment in Mason. As a former CEO of a publicly traded company located here, I appreciate what it takes to grow a company,” states Mason city mayor David Nichols. “Having that perspective and a city council and city manager that think like businesses, means our focus is to not only remove barriers, but leverage every advantage available. Intelligrated has been an ardent supporter of the city and the benefit of doing business here, as well as a leader in Mason’s growing business community.”
