MASON, OHIO (Dec. 14, 2:20 p.m. ET) — Intelligrated Inc., a manufacturer of material handling equipment, plans to add 200 employees and double the size of its headquarters plant in Mason, a suburb of Cincinnati.

Ohio Gov. John Kasich and other state and local public officials joined Intelligrated executives to announce the expansion on Nov. 21.

Intelligrated will build a facility in Mason, in the range of 60,000 to 90,000 square feet. Construction plans are being finalized.

Government agencies have granted an incentive package, valued at about $15 million. The incentives will include an extension of Intelligrated’s existing job creation tax credit, state and local loans, property tax abatement and a state grant.

Intelligrated makes automated systems and robots for conveying and palletizing for material handling and distribution of retail consumer products, food and beverage, apparel, converted paper, pharmaceutical, postal distribution and airport baggage handling. The company also makes warehouse control systems.

CEO Chris Cole and Jim McCarthy, president and chief operating officer, co-founded Intelligrated in 2001 after their former company, Pinnacle Automation Co., was sold to FKI Logistex Group Ltd. of England. They ended up buying back FKI’s North American operations.

The 200 new jobs will include technical and engineering positions in research and development, system design and customer service.
