McLane Foodservice Opens New Distribution Facility

McLane Co., Inc., Temple, Texas, announced plans to build a new $119 million distribution facility in Findlay, Ohio. The site is expected to break ground this summer and will create 425 new jobs.

McLane’s grocery unit services more than 45,000 retail locations nationwide. The company expects this highly automated distribution center to greatly enhance its efficiency in servicing customers throughout the Great Lakes region.

“We’re thrilled that Findlay, Ohio, will be home to our 22nd grocery distribution center within our nationwide network,” says Mike Youngblood, president. “The values and work ethic of the community fit perfectly with McLane. The invaluable assistance of state and local officials was one of the primary reasons in selecting Ohio as our new home. Their focus on promoting a business-friendly environment was a critical part of our selection process.”
