SANDUSKY, Ohio (March 14, 2022) – LogistiQ, the first fully vertically integrated business in the e-commerce material handling industry, will make its debut at MODEX 2022, March 28-31, in Atlanta.
Though technically a new company, LogistiQ has deep roots in the industry. It’s a subsidiary of LEWCO, Inc., a leader in conveyors and industrial ovens which was founded in 1917. A “100-year-old startup,” LogistiQ was created to meet the explosive demand created by online shopping.
“The e-commerce industry is in dire need of innovative technology and services,” said CEO Gerald Guerra. “This new company will allow us to focus exclusively on e-commerce material handling and offer a fully integrated package of services, from consulting and design to manufacturing and installation.”
As part of its expansion, LogistiQ has converted a former World War II depot in Port Clinton, Ohio, into a 750,000-square-foot, state-of-the-art manufacturing facility. The Erie Army Ordinance Depot, built by the Army in 1942 to service tanks and other military equipment, is now the manufacturing heart of LogistiQ, which has invested $12 million in new production equipment. The company will continue to operate its two other manufacturing facilities in Sandusky.
In addition to adding manufacturing capacity, LogistiQ has expanded its engineering services to offer precision manufacturing and customized design solutions for clients. It also has begun manufacturing pulleys and control panels, which previously had been supplied by vendors. This benefits clients by streamlining manufacturing and eliminating supply chain delays.
LogistiQ, a third-generation, family-owned business, is proud to support American manufacturing by recommitting to its roots in north-central Ohio and increasing its workforce of 420 to 550. “Our success is owed to our employees’ hard work and innovation,” Guerra said. “They are the reason we lead the industry and have been able to launch this exciting new company.”
By providing comprehensive, vertically integrated solutions for e-commerce material handling, LogistiQ will help the industry continue to grow.
“E-commerce has transformed the way the world shops and how business is conducted,” Guerra said. “LogistiQ is committed to providing the expertise, service and equipment that powers this transformation to better serve businesses and consumers.”
