LandCal Logistics, a third-party logistics company providing end-to-end supply chain services, expands its Georgetown facility with a $600,000 investment creating 10 new full-time positions.
“While the commonwealth always encourages companies to bring in new business, the state thrives on Kentucky-founded companies like LandCal expanding its presence here,” said Gov. Beshear. “The success we’re seeing is thanks in large part to the people of the commonwealth continuing to invest and grow their businesses here. I want to thank LandCal’s leadership for doing exactly that and continuing to create quality jobs in the Georgetown area.”
LandCal will expand its Georgetown headquarters by adding an additional 5,400 square feet to its current 5,400-square-foot space. The company moved into the current space in October 2022 and will open a Unishippers franchise to offer small parcel/logistics solutions out of the Scott County facility.
“Kentucky is home, and it is with great enthusiasm that we continue to be committed to growing a reputable, sustainable business in the community of Scott County/Georgetown, Kentucky, where we live and serve,” said Joshua Landacre, LandCal co-founder and managing director. “It’s truly a special place, where they have rallied around us as a start-up six years ago. We’re super-excited to reinvest back into the community we love by creating job opportunities in the logistics/supply chain industry.”
Founded in 2016, LandCal is now ranked 124th in Inc. 5000’s Fastest Growing Companies in the Southeast. LandCal deploys leading technology and talented professionals to deliver complex logistics services to bridge the gap between shippers and a network of over 50,000 carrier partners.
This expansion adds to Kentucky’s thriving distribution and logistics sector, which includes more than 600 facilities and employs over 91,000 people statewide. Administration-to-date, 120 new-location and expansion projects within the industry are expected to create more than 7,700 full-time jobs with over $2.2 billion in new investments.
Scott County Judge/Executive Joe Pat Covington congratulated LandCal on the expansion.
“It is great when you see a local company grow and decide to expand locally,” said Judge Covington. “I am excited for Georgetown that LandCal Logistics has decided to expand their business right here in Scott County. LandCal has developed into a logistics industry leader and adding jobs will benefit our community now and in the future. At the intersection of Interstate 75 and 64, Georgetown and Scott County is a great place for business. Congratulations to LandCal Logistics.”
Georgetown Mayor Burney Jenkins showed his support for retaining existing business in the area.
“The LandCal Logistics expansion project presents an incredible opportunity for the Georgetown/Scott County community,” Mayor Jenkins said. “Our economic vitality is heavily dependent upon our ability to retain existing businesses, incentivize the growth of these businesses, and focus on capital investments that ultimately bring quality jobs to our city and county. As Mayor of Georgetown, I am proud to support this project.”
Jack Conner, executive director of Scott County United Inc., said LandCal’s expansion aligns with the county’s priorities.
“The proposed expansion of LandCal Logistics is a perfect example of meeting one of the ‘Five High Demand Sector’ priorities to grow in Georgetown/Scott County and the commonwealth,” Conner said. “We could not be more pleased and prouder that LandCal decided to expand in Kentucky versus other options. We continue to be a business-friendly community open to growth.”
