Trimble Inc. is undergoing a multi-million dollar expansion.
The company, located in Huber Heights, is in the early phase of a $12 million expansion of its warehouse, said City Manager Rob Schommer.
“Trimble has certainly been a staple in the region,” he said. “Not just for the technology they produce, but for the employment opportunities they provide in the area.”
Trimble is a technology company that provides software for a variety of industries from agriculture to transportation and logistics. The company also develops hardware for satellite system receivers, unmanned aerial vehicles and software processing tools.
The expansion would take the warehouse from 130,000 to roughly 300,000 square-feet, essentially doubling the size of the space.
Trimble employs more than 500 people from across the Miami Valley.
This new project could mean a few more jobs in the Huber Heights warehouse, but the expansion is mainly for logistic reasons, Schommer said.
“This is more of a space and operational expansion,” he said.
Schommer said the city has not given Trimble any tax incentives, and that the project is not eligible for a tax abatement.
“This is a 100% Trimble investment into the community,” Schommer said.
Ferguson Construction Co. is the contractor for this project.
Trimble has offices in 40 countries. The company’s Huber Heights office is located at 5475 Kellenburger Road.
“It’s great to have a worldwide company right here in Huber Heights,” Schommer said. “(The city) is just excited that they continue to expand.”
