Casey’s distribution center to bring 185 jobs

TERRE HAUTE, Ind. (WTHI) – On Tuesday, Governor Mike Pence along with executives from Casey’s General Stores, Inc. announced the company’s plan to open a new distribution center in Terre Haute.

This new center would create up to 185 new jobs by the year 2019.

“Indiana is a state that works for logistics,” said Pence. “Perfectly situated here at the Crossroads of America, our central location helps companies like Casey’s reduce distribution costs. And with more pass-through interstates than any other state, Indiana helps companies reach their customers faster.” 

Approximately $30 million will be invested into constructing and equipping the 250,000 square foot distribution and logistics facility that will be located in the Vigo County Industrial Park.

Construction is planned to begin in November and the doors are expected to open by fall of 2015.

“We are delighted that Casey’s has selected the Vigo County Industrial Park for the site of its second distribution center,” said Judith Anderson, president of the Vigo County Commissioners. “It is especially thrilling to have such a well-known, growing company as Casey’s make such a significant investment in our community.”
