Lodge Cast Iron has started construction on its new distribution center.
According to the Times Free Press, the distribution center is the largest building to be built in Marion County. The facility will span 212,000 square feet and Lodge plans to consolidate its four other warehouse facilities into the new complex by May.
“This was the nearest available site where we could build a new and bigger distribution facility with the capability of being expanded in the future,” said Mark Kelly, vp/communications and marketing for Lodge Manufacturing. “As we continue to grow, we needed more space to store and ship our inventory from and this should help improve the efficiency of our distribution.”
