Trucking company planning to have new $4.9M service center built.

Old Dominion Freight Line Inc. says the company has plans to build a new service center in Huber Heights, expanding its operations in Dayton.

The company confirmed it purchased land at 8850 State Route 235 in Huber Heights, where it plans to build its new service center.

The trucking company, which is based in North Carolina, already has a location in Riverside, at 3100 Transportation Road. That facility employs 60 people, according to a company spokesman.

According to a building permit submitted to Montgomery County, CESO Inc., an engineering firm based in Miamisburg, is involved with the project. Initial estimates for the cost of the service center listed on the building permit are more than $4.9 million.

Furst Construction Company out of Salt Lake City, Utah, is listed as the contractor on the building permit.

A company spokesman said the growth in Dayton is a build on the company’s network growth in 2021. She also said Old Dominion Freight Line is planning to hire about 1,200 new workers in 2021, including 800 driving positions. The company said in a press release that average annual pay for their truck drivers ranges from $73,000 for pick-up and delivery drivers and $99,000 for line haul drivers.

It is not currently clear how many jobs the service center will bring to Huber Heights. The company declined to give further details.

The company recently expanded their holdings in Mansfield, opening a new service center there last November. Old Dominion has eight service centers in Ohio, according to the company, including one in West Chester and one in Columbus.

Huber Heights Mayor Jeff Gore said Huber Heights is experiencing a huge amount of growth recently. A Maryland real estate firm recently announced plans to tear down a vacant apartment complex at the northeast corner of Old Troy Pike and Taylorsville Road to build a new apartment and retail mix development. The development would be called Huber Heights Crossings, according to plans submitted to Huber Heights.

“There’s just a lot of great things happening in Huber Heights, we’re growing like we’ve never grown in the 40 years of our existence, and I’m very proud of that,” Gore said.
