MASON, OH (FOX19) -

A groundbreaking ceremony was held Monday morning for a new office construction project in Mason.

Intelligrated, an automated material handling solutions provider, is relocating administrative personnel into the new building to accommodate a planned expansion in engineering, customer service and R&D staffing and testing facilities. The construction project, which was awarded to Cincinnati-based Al. Neyer Inc., will accommodate 450 associates and is scheduled for completion in October 2012.

The expansion is made possible by an incentive package from the state of Ohio and the city of Mason to support local job growth. Valued at approximately $15 million, the package includes a combination of Intelligrated's existing Job Creation Tax Credit, state and local government loans, property tax abatement and a state of Ohio grant.

"We are thrilled to celebrate Intelligrated's success as they break ground on their state-of-the-art facility here in Mason," said Mason Mayor David Nichols. "Congratulations to Intelligrated. You have set the tone for new investment and new jobs in 2012."

"Today's groundbreaking is a milestone in Intelligrated's ongoing growth as one of the most technologically-advanced players in the material handling industry. The new building will help us continue to expand our footprint, grow our technical staff and create advanced productivity solutions," saidChris Cole, CEO of Intelligrated. "We appreciate the incentives from the state of Ohio and the city of Mason which help support our expansion."

Ohio Gov. John Kasich visited Mason in November to announce the expansion.
