A new distribution warehouse will bring 150 new jobs to Fairborn, according to City Manager Rob Anderson.

Construction on the 150,000 square foot facility on Spangler Road near Ohio 444 is already underway, though a ceremonial groundbreaking will likely come within the month, Anderson said.

Details on who will operate the facility are still unclear. Last week in a video on Facebook, Anderson said the company was not yet prepared to reveal itself.

“It’s given a project name ‘Soho’” Anderson said. “It’s just a project name. The company… is not ready to announce who they are yet. They didn’t even tell us who they are, we just know the parameters of the project.”

Ohio 444 and Spangler Road can get congested at times, Anderson said, but he predicted the city would not need to make modifications to the intersection.

“I know it’s congested, but bear with us,” Anderson said.
