Hanson Logistics – Hobart, IN

Hanson Logistics is a family-owned company, just like Tippmann Group, and the two companies have had a long-term relationship over the years as colleagues and competitors in the International Association of Refrigerated Warehouses (IARW). Hanson was looking for a one-stop shop, a General Contractor who could handle every aspect of their expansion, from incentives to design and construction.

In addition to that, because of the owner-operator experience that Tippmann Group has as owners of Interstate Warehousing, Hanson knew that Tippmann understood the PRW business.

Hanson was given a tour of one of the newest expansions to an Interstate Warehousing facility in nearby Joliet, IL, and that visit made a big impact on the Hanson team, because it gave them a chance to see all of the new bells and whistles in the construction industry that they could use in their own facility.

Tippmann broke ground on the 85,000 square foot / 12,000 pallet expansion on April 15, and the building was completed by September 1.

“One of the biggest things we saw from Tippmann as the project went on was the amount of supervision and management on the job site, and the empowerment that the project managers had to make decisions on site throughout the project,” said Andy Janson, President of Hanson Logistics.
