Plainfield logistics firm to move to new HQ

Back to TopCommentsE-mailPrintBookmark and Share

Plainfield-based Hanzo Logistics plans to move about a half-mile north to a new $17 million headquarters and distribution facility, expected to be finished in September.

The new facility at 450 Airtech Parkway will measure 403,200 square feet, according to Aasif Bade, president of Indianapolis-based Ambrose Property Group, which is developing the project for lease by Hanzo.

The building represents a substantial expansion for Hanzo, currently headquartered in 326,000 square feet of leased space at 595 Perry Road in Plainfield.

“We’ve been growing pretty steadily,” said Rob Wallin, vice president of operations for Hanzo.

The third-party logistics firm currently employs about 15 full-time workers and 20 temporary employees locally. Within a couple years, the total could hit 80 or so, Wallin said.

Hanzo expects to invest $335,000 in manufacturing, logistics and IT equipment for the facility, according to project information filed with the town of Plainfield.

The new project will include 30,000 square feet of cold-storage space—a big bump from 2,500 square feet it currently uses.

Founded in 2009, Hanzo specializes in warehouse management, fulfillment and distribution and transportation. It operates facilities in Plainfield and Laredo, Texas.

The town of Plainfield has approved economic incentives for the project.

  1. John, unfortunately CTRWD wants to put the tank(s) right next to a nature preserve and at the southern entrance to Carmel off of Keystone. Not exactly the kind of message you want to send to residents and visitors (come see our tanks as you enter our city and we build stuff in nature preserves...

  2. 85 feet for an ambitious project? I could shoot ej*culate farther than that.

  3. I tried, can't take it anymore. Untill Katz is replaced I can't listen anymore.

  4. Perhaps, but they've had a very active program to reduce rainwater/sump pump inflows for a number of years. But you are correct that controlling these peak flows will require spending more money - surge tanks, lines or removing storm water inflow at the source.

  5. All sewage goes to the Carmel treatment plant on the White River at 96th St. Rainfall should not affect sewage flows, but somehow it does - and the increased rate is more than the plant can handle a few times each year. One big source is typically homeowners who have their sump pumps connect into the sanitary sewer line rather than to the storm sewer line or yard. So we (Carmel and Clay Twp) need someway to hold the excess flow for a few days until the plant can process this material. Carmel wants the surge tank located at the treatment plant but than means an expensive underground line has to be installed through residential areas while CTRWD wants the surge tank located further 'upstream' from the treatment plant which costs less. Either solution works from an environmental control perspective. The less expensive solution means some people would likely have an unsightly tank near them. Carmel wants the more expensive solution - surprise!
