Clayco and Coal City Land Owners Break Ground on Industrial Park
New industrial park to be served by Union Pacific Railroad
CHICAGO (Dec. 12, 2013) – Today, Clayco and Providence Logistics announced plans to develop an industrial park in Coal City. The industrial park will be served by Union Pacific Railroad. The companies thanked supporters and all those involved with a photo opportunity and luncheon Thursday, Dec. 12. The park was designed with flexibility in mind to accommodate spaces for sale, lease, or other arrangements.
“Union Pacific Railroad supports the development of the future rail-served Inland Logistics Port of Coal City,” said Adrian Guerrero, director, public affairs – Illinois. “We are excited about the opportunities and economic growth this project will bring to Coal City, Grundy County and the region, and look forward to our continued partnership.”
The 285-acre property is developed by Providence Logistics and has been an ongoing project the last four years. The land will provide warehousing and shipping opportunities for companies who use railways as a primary method of transportation. Clayco will play an integral role in the construction and design of the land as it is parceled out to investors and companies.
“I’m thrilled to see Union Pacific, Providence Logistics and Clayco come together to move this development forward,” said Mayor Neal Nelson. “The benefits of bringing more rail traffic and businesses to the area will create a significant, positive economic impact on Coal City.”
