Two national companies will expand in Duke Realty’s Lebanon Business Park, a 1,250-acre industrial park just off I-65 between SR 32 and SR 39 in Lebanon, IN.
Purity Wholesale Grocers, a distributor of products ranging from frozen food to health and beauty care, dairy, dry goods and candy, announced plans to invest in a new 480,000-square-foot regional distribution center on 29 acres it purchased in the park. The build to suit by Duke is the third building transaction between the two companies. Duke Realty (NYSE: DRE
) built Purity’s first facility in LBP in 1996 and expanded it in 2012.
Also, the product support division of CNH Global NV, an international manufacturing company, announced that it will lease and equip a 153,000-square-foot building in Lebanon Business Park, raising its total presence in LBP to 1.2 million square feet in three buildings.
When the new facility is fully operational, it will serve as the command center for CNH’s extensive parts delivery system. CNH already has 500 full-time and 200 contract employees in the park and plans to add 100 new jobs by 2014.
Lebanon Business Park, developed in 1994, employs more than 2,600 people in 6.4 million square feet of office, industrial and manufacturing space.
