Warehouse nearly complete in Vandalia
Construction of a Vandalia warehouse owned by a Maryland-based speciality metal packaging and custom metal lithography company is set to be completed before February, according to the builder.
Independent Can Company, which is headquartered in Belcamp, Md., is in the middle of building a single-story 103,810-square-foot warehouse at 1650 Capstone Way in Stonequarry Crossings near Peters Pike, according to Kristy Warren, Marketing manager for the Ferguson Construction Company in Sidney. The facility will include office and manufacturing space.
Construction started in mid-August for the $5.4 million project.
This new facility will employ nearly 15 people, according to Bob McClelland, executive vice-president.
“We’re excited to be in the Vandalia area. It offers a logistic opportunity for us to improve our distribution network in the midwest,” McClelland said.
Montgomery County Commissioners approved $200,000 of the company’s requested $300,000 in ED/GE -Economic Development and Government Equity grant funding this week.
The grant money will go toward expansion that would help create approximately 30 jobs by 2017, at an annual payroll of $1.4 million, according to McClelland.
Grant committee members said they hoped the company would use the money to buy land south of its current building for expansion.
“We are thrilled that the Independent Can Company has selected the Stonequarry Crossings Development in the City of Vandalia to expand its operations,” said Greg Shackelford, assistant city manager. “The company has a strong reputation in the decorative canister and the nostalgic signage industries, and prides itself on top quality graphic designs and incredible customer service. We anticipate the relationship to continue to develop and to grow for many years to come. “
