Gabriel Brothers, Inc. announced the grand opening of its largest distribution center in Springfield, OH, with over 870,000 square feet.

Construction at the 114-acre site began mid-October 2021 with general contractor Brinkman Constructors. The facility is now open and fully operational. The $77.5 million project will create over 800 full-time and part-time jobs over five years, with over 200 positions filled.

“This innovative facility signifies the next key phase of our growth,” said Gabe’s CEO Jason Mazzola. “This is the largest investment in our company history and will enable us to double our store footprint over the next ten years. It is a critical part of our evolution, and we’re so grateful to be here.”

“This distribution center embodies our vision to create a state-of-the-art facility that is a valuable and integrated part of the Springfield community,” said Jason Wolter, EVP and COO for Gabe’s. “This project has exceeded our expectations. We wish to thank the people of Springfield for welcoming us so graciously, as well as our partners who helped us complete this project on time. We look forward to growing alongside this wonderful community.”

“We appreciate our partners’ contributions and hard work, which enabled our fast, timely construction,” said Rick Szurlej, Gabe’s supply chain SVP. “They provided incredible support throughout this process. Together, and along with our distribution and growth initiatives, we ensure store expansion thanks to our new Springfield home.”
