Keller Logistics Group of Defiance, Ohio, announced the purchase of the assets of the former TMT Warehouse in Napoleon, Ohio. The 410,000 square-foot warehouse facility and six-bay truck shop located on close to 40 acres of what was formerly called the Southpoint Industrial Park will be operated as Keller Packaging of Napoleon. With this addition, Keller now operates in excess of a million square feet of space in three states.
The Napoleon facility employs close to 60 associates, most of which will be rehired; terms of the transaction were not announced. Keller plans to use the new asset to provide additional support for current operations that have been servicing Campbell Soup Co. and Silgan Container Co. for several years. With this new acquisition, Keller now has repack and secondary pack capability at the Napoleon facility and says it will be marketing it aggressively.
The Keller Logistics Group has brokerage and warehouse operations in Dallas; Jacksonville, Fla.; Maumee, Ohio; Bentonville, Ark.; and Plainfield, Ill. Keller Logistics Group also owns Thomas E. Keller Trucking, which operates 115 power units along with a fleet of more than 400 van trailers. With this latest addition, Keller will employ more than 250 team members and professional drivers.
