Quetico LLC, a West Coast logistics services company, has purchased a 39-acre parcel of land in Goodyear on which it intends to open a large industrial facility, including warehousing and office space.
The company said it will relocate its California operations to the West Valley. The new Goodyear facility is to be built at the northeast corner of 143rd Avenue and Yuma Road. Quetico, based in Chino, California, said it is partnering with Ontario, California-based Fullmer Construction to build the 719,520–square-foot project, with a capital investment of more than $45 million.
The facility is expected to open by fall 2020. The company said it would create about 300 new jobs, though it didn’t specify how many employees would relocate from California, where it now has more than 200 workers at two warehouses with a combined 500,000 square feet of space, according to its website. Quetico said it will retain a small location in Chino to help retain some key employees unable to move to Arizona.
