500 new jobs at vehicle assembly plant

This is great news. We knew the announcement for the actual hiring to begin for the Integrated Logistics Center (ILC) would take place sometime this summer, but these employment numbers are higher than those originally released last summer. 

We were one of the responsible parties for getting all the site work done on time for construction to begin, so we know how hard everyone has been working to stay on schedule and get to the point of this announcement being made today. The 1.5 million square foot building will become operational in phases over the next year. By the way, just for clarification the ILC is being referred to as a Supplier Park or a Supplier Warehouse in the media. —Tim Coursey.
