Sysco Corp, the Houston TX-based foodservice marketer and distributor, has bought property in Hamlet IN for its Midwest Cooperative Redistribution Center (RDC). This facility is expected to create about 500 new jobs.

Sysco affiliate Baugh Midwest Cooperative acquired 320 acres for the RDC, and the Starke County Development Foundation purchased 24 acres for infrastructure. Construction is expected to start in summer 2007, with completion anticipated in about 12 to 18 months.

This roughly 700,000-square-foot operation will include refrigeration, freezer, dry storage, office space, and a truck maintenance facility. When operational, it will supply Sysco operating firms in the Midwest.

The RDC is the third of several centers planned in the United States as part of Sysco’s Supply Chain Initiative. The other two RDCs are one operating in Front Royal VA and another in Alachua FL that is now being constructed.
