Nutella & Tic Tac maker opens large distribution center in Central Pa.

By Natalie Kostelni  – Reporter, Philadelphia Business Journal
First Industrial Realty Trust will officially opened on Monday a new 739,000-square-foot warehouse-distribution center in Central Pennsylvania that is fully leased to Ferrero Inc., an Italian global confectionery company that owns such brands as Ferrero Rocher, Nutella, Tic Tac and Kinder.

The new facility at 112 Bordnersville Road in Jonestown will be used to distribute brands Ferrero USA acquired from Nestlé including Butterfinger, Baby Ruth, 100Grand and Crunch. Through the Nestlé acquisition, the company is now the third largest maker of candy and other sweets in the country. The facility is key to Ferrero USA’s growth, giving it ample capacity to distribute its brands throughout North America, the company said.

Central Pennsylvania and the Lehigh Valley are among the country’s top industrial markets. As a result of their highway networks and other characteristics, within a one-day truck drive, or 10 hours, a company can cover 500 to 600 miles and reach about 40% of the population of the United States and half of its purchasing power.
