Intelligrated, a leading North American-based automated material handling solutions provider, has announced the grand opening of its 122,000-square-foot headquarters expansion in Mason, Ohio. With a combined area of 262,000 square feet, Intelligrated’s headquarters will accommodate an ongoing increase in engineering, research and development staffing.

The yearlong construction project was made possible by a financial incentive package from the state of Ohio and the city of Mason to support local job growth. Over the past year, Intelligrated added more than 160 employees in the state of Ohio and 275 employees company wide. In addition, the company plans to add 150 more employees by the end of 2013.

“The state-of-the-art facility is designed to attract and retain world-class talent,” said Chris Cole, CEO, Intelligrated. “We appreciate the incentives from the state of Ohio and the city of Mason that allows us to expand our footprint, increase our technical staff and continue to meet an increasing demand for innovative automated material handling solutions.”

The grand opening is a milestone in Intelligrated’s ongoing development as one of the most technologically-advanced players in the material handling industry. In addition to its corporate headquarters, Intelligrated has expanded facilities in Texas and Illinois within the past 12 months.

“Intelligrated is yet another example of a successful business continuing investment in Mason. As a former CEO of a publicly traded company located here, I appreciate what it takes to grow a company,” said Mason Mayor David Nichols. “Having that perspective and a city council and city manager that think like businesses, means our focus is to not only remove barriers, but leverage every advantage available. Intelligrated has been an ardent supporter of the city and the benefit of doing business here, as well as a leader in Mason’s growing business community.”
