Senator Marco Rubio (R-FL), Mayor Lenny Curry, Congressman John Rutherford (R-FL) and State Senator Aaron Bean (R-FL) visited Magellan Transport Logistics Thursday.
The company previously announced that it had acquired a 47,000-square-foot warehouse and will hire more 100 employees over the next five years, in part because of the recently passed tax reform.
“Florida’s businesses and families are already seeing the benefits of the Republican-passed tax reform,” Rubio said in a statement. “Magellan’s decision to open another facility and to hire an additional 100 employees are important examples of this success.”
Magellan plans to create a new logistics control tower and scale up into its new facility. The Business Journal previously sat down with Magellan CEO Tom Piatak to discuss his vision for the company’s growth.
