J&R Schugel Trucking Investing $3.5 Million in Region, Nearly Doubling Workforce

January 26, 2015

Columbus, OH – J&R Schugel Trucking, Inc. today announced a $3.5 million investment in the Columbus Region, expanding its current location at 4630 Journal St. and adding 20 employees to its existing 24- person workforce.

“When the time came to expand our new logistics division, we knew we would stay in the Columbus Region,” said Rick Schugel, CEO, J&R Schugel Trucking, Inc. “The workforce we find in Central Ohio is the type of talent we want to hire. And location-wise, it is surrounded by major highways that allow convenient access to our customers in key metropolitan areas.”

The transportation provider plans to purchase its current facility, along with the neighboring property, when its lease is up in July 2015. The updated and expanded space will house the new logistics division and training center.

Over the next three years, the company will hire—beginning in 2015—drivers, office personnel, mechanics and logistics staff.
