Campbell Soup to Build Facility in Findlay

August 11, 2017

CSX got some mmmmm good news from the Campbell Soup Company this week.

Campbell plans to spend $44 million for a 740,000 square-foot distribution center near Findlay.

Company officials said they located the center based on Findlay’s proximity to the Northwest Ohio Intermodal Terminal that CSX operates at North Baltimore.

Findlay also is located along Interstate 75 and near a Campbell’s factory in Napoleon.

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

Cacciatore said that soup and other products will be sent to the North Baltimore facility for distribution to the West Coast.

The Findlay site, which is expected to employ 200, will receive soup, broth and stock products, along with beverages and other food and organic products.
