Northwest Ohio Logistics Company Investing $5 Million for New Headquarters
Keller Logistics New Operations in Defiance to Bring 194 Jobs
Published: Mon Dec 11 2023
Company Name: Keller Logistics Group, Inc.
Site Region: Northwest
Industry Sector: Logistics and Distribution
Company Profile: Keller Logistics Group started as a single truck and trailer trucking company over 40 years ago and has grown into an asset-based third-party logistics provider dedicated to serving the transportation, warehousing, distribution, and contract packaging needs of manufacturers, wholesalers, and retailers across the U.S. The company has operations in 10 states and 750 employees.
Timetable: The company is moving into an existing building. It hopes to have all upgrades and move-ins complete by Q2 2024.
The company was seeking to consolidate operations to support growth and promote efficiencies. The acquisition of an existing 30,000-square-foot commercial office building, which has been vacant since 2022, will facilitate that growth and allow the majority of Keller’s professional staff to work under one roof while promoting further collaboration among the company’s workforce.
We have a very talented workforce that has led to our growth and success. And we want to be that employer in Northwest Ohio that keeps young talent here and provides opportunities for them.”
- Bryan Keller -
CEO / Keller Logistics
The company credited an outstanding workforce as a primary reason for the decision to maintain its headquarters in Northwest Ohio while also noting the state’s strong business climate. In addition, geographic location and a robust distribution and supply chain make Ohio a hub for logistics and transportation.
