Con-Way Freight Announces Major FDL Expansion

Con-way Freight today announced plans for an $8 million facility in the Fox Ridge Business Park in Fond du Lac. The 47,000 square-foot trucking freight service center will be state-of-the-art and have 96 doors. The expansion will replace the existing 25-door service center on Morris Street. Fond du Lac County Economic Development Corporation President Steve Jenkins says it will allow Con-way to consolidate its smaller service centers in Fond du Lac, Sheboygan and Neenah into a larger, more cost-effective single facility. Fond du Lac Community Development Director Wayne Rollin says it will mean about 100 jobs for a company that currently employs about 45 workers in Fond du Lac. Construction begins next month and should be completed in March of 2014. Con-way Freight is a trucking company subsidiary of Con-Way, Inc. Read the entire press release.
