Veritiv Corporation, a North American business-to-business distribution solutions company, has opened its new Greater Cincinnati Operations Center at Gilmore Pointe in Fairfield, OH. The approximately 72,000-square-foot space accommodates more than 400 of Veritiv’s customer service, credit, IT, and finance professionals.
“This new operations center is an important strategic investment for Veritiv, and it aligns with our goal to integrate our operations and strengthen collaboration throughout the company,” said Mary Laschinger, Chairman and CEO for Veritiv. “The Greater Cincinnati area and the City of Fairfield are ideal markets for exceptional talent to support our company’s operations and our customers. We look forward to contributing to the local economy and community.”
The Fairfield property met many of the company’s requirements, including proximity for current employees, opportunity for potential future growth, and access to the Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky International Airport. The Greater Cincinnati area is home to approximately 550 Veritiv employees, including distribution centers in Fairfield and Northern Kentucky. In total, the company employs more than 600 people in Ohio.
Veritiv partnered with the City of Fairfield Development Services office, the Fairfield Chamber of Commerce, and the Regional Economic Development Initiative (REDI) Cincinnati to secure the new location. The Fairfield City Council approved incentives that allow Veritiv to be reimbursed up to $2 million over 10 years for its expenses building out its operation in the city. The incentives are tied to the company maintaining its annual payroll of $30 million in the city.
“We are very excited to welcome Veritiv to Fairfield,” said Steve Miller, Mayor of the City of Fairfield. “The company is a great addition to the Fairfield business community and now ranks among the top 10 employers in our city. We are pleased that Veritiv is maintaining a major presence in the region.”
