MSC Industrial Direct Co. Inc. Opens New Customer Fulfillment Center in Columbus, Ohio

MSC INDUSTRIAL SUPPLY CO. opened its fifth Customer Fulfillment Center, or distribution center, in Columbus, Ohio. MSC marked the occasion with a ribbon cutting ceremony to celebrate the company's latest investment in its long-term growth. The new CFC keeps MSC close to its expanding customer base at a time when customers are relying more than ever on MSC for metalworking and MRO products and solutions that help them deliver to their end customers. MSC offers more than 1 million industrial products along with value-added services, including its ControlPoint Inventory Management solutions. MSC first announced plans for the new facility in the summer of 2012 when it purchased a 70 acre plot of land where the 400,000 square-foot facility now sits. The State of Ohio, Columbus 2020 and JobsOhio provided important incentives that made MSC's investment possible. The new CFC is currently home to 100 full-time associates, a number that is expected to grow to 300 by year-end 2017. The site is also designed to accommodate future expansion as MSC continues to grow. MSC invested approximately $55.5 million in capital expenditures to construct and outfit the facility in Columbus. In addition, Columbus 2020, City of Columbus, State of Ohio, JobsOhio, Franklin County, Columbus-Franklin County Finance Authority, and Columbia Gas worked to structure an attractive incentive package, with tax and other incentives totaling approximately $9 million over the course of 10 years.
