FINDLAY, Ohio — Campbell Soup Company will invest $44 million in a 740,000 square-foot distribution center near Findlay in northwestern Ohio, The Courier newspaper reports.

Campbell executives say the decision to build the facility near Findlay was its proximity to CSX Transportation’s North Baltimore intermodal facility, Interstate 75, and Campbell’s Napoleon, Ohio, factory.

“Because of the transportation lanes available here, we can distribute [products] nationwide via truck or rail from here,” says Mark Cacciatore, vice president of supply chain at Campbell Soup Co.

He says that soup and other products will be loaded onto trains at CSX’s North Baltimore facility for distribution to the West Coast.

The Findlay site will receive soup, broth and stock products, along with beverages and other food and organic products.

When the facility opens, it will employ more than 200 people.
