Columbus, Ohio-based Spartan Logistics is moving to a 130,000-square-foot warehouse just south of Lawrence and will begin hiring 35 people.
The facility near 33rd Street and Franklin Road is the company’s second in Indiana. It’s had a 400,000-square-foot operation in Marion since 2000.
Spartan specializes in handling food-grade materials, glass, paper and high-value products. The company has eight locations—in Ohio, Indiana and South Carolina.
The third-party logistics company plans to complete full occupancy of the facility by the end of January.
“Indianapolis feels like home to us. The city has a great labor force and represents a perfect location with our current geographic footprint,” said Spartan’s president, Steve Harmon.•
