Midwest Express expanding in Logan County

Midwest Express announced today plans to create a new regional logistics center on its campus near East Liberty, which will create 50 new jobs and approximately $1,300,000 in annual payroll.

Midwest Express was recently awarded new business from Honda to begin the regional logistics center designed to improve management of parts supplied from Japan. It will support various manufacturing plants in Ohio. Investment in the project will include building upgrades, material handling equipment, and a new computer system. This marks the next step of streamlining logistics for Honda.

"The addition of the Regional Logistics Center is extremely exciting," stated MEI President Toshihide Tanaka. "At Midwest Express, we place great importance on serving our customers, community, and providing our associates with opportunities to build their careers. Expanding our business reflects the growth potential and commitment of MEI."

On April 11th, the Logan County Commissioners voted to give MEI a tax abatement of 50 percent for ten years.

In addition to the logistics center, Midwest Express will soon break ground for an additional 100,000 square foot building at its campus located at 11590 Township Road 298, East Liberty. The expansion is expected to be completed by the end of September.
