An East Liberty-based company relocated one of its plants to Delaware’s industrial park over the holidays.
NEX Transport Inc. started operations over 163,000-square-foot at 1076 Pittsburgh Drive on Jan. 3, said Tod Johnson, vice president of the company.
The company is a logistics solutions provider for companies such as Honda and provide contract packaging, distribution, kitting, sequencing, line-side delivery, export and mass production.
The company’s Delaware plant relocated from Marion to be closer to its East Liberty plant. The company has two facilities in Bellefontaine.
NEX employs more than 35 employees in forklift and packaging and repackaging positions, Johnson said, and there are plans for expansion.
The “employment base in Delaware was good for us as a company,” he said.
The city’s industrial park offered nice facilities, Johnson added.
The company will have a ribbon-cutting ceremony from 11:30 a.m. to 2 p.m. Wednesday. There will also be tours and snacks, according to the city of Delaware’s website.
“It is an incredibly rapid growing company,” said City Economic Development Director Sean Hughes.
“We are excited about their presence in Delaware,” he said. “They continue to reinforce Delaware’s position as a community that successfully supports the automotive industry.”
