Hollingsworth Logistics Group LLC, founded in 1991 and headquartered in Dearborn, is a Native American-owned and minority business certified leading provider of third-party logistics supply chain solutions. From complex order fulfillment strategies to detailed assembly and kitting operations, the company’s experience-backed supply chain solutions optimize the effectiveness, accuracy, and cost of logistics to drive business for its customers.
As a result of new business, Hollingsworth plans to expand its operations into a 500,000-square-foot facility in Brownstown Charter Township. The project is expected to generate a total private investment of $17 million and create up to 250 jobs, resulting in a $1.5 million Michigan Business Development Program performance-based grant. Michigan was chosen for the project over competing sites in Ohio, Tennessee or Texas.
The project aligns with MEDC’s strategic focus industry of mobility and automotive manufacturing and the regional impact industry of logistics. The project will provide immediate job growth in the local region and will include both pathway and management jobs. Hollingsworth provides training in soft skills, leadership, coaching, communication and project management and encourages advancement from within the company. With a workforce that is over 80% minority-based, Hollingsworth has a history of employing disadvantaged populations, and works with local organizations like Michigan Works! to hire for entry-level positions.
Stephen Barr, Chairman, CEO and Co-Founder of Hollingsworth commented: “Hollingsworth is proud to invest and grow in Brownstown Charter Township and is grateful for earning the support of the Michigan Economic Development Corporation. This expansion will provide significant employment opportunities in the region and help us to continue to successfully serve our growing customer base.”
Brownstown Charter Township has offered to support the project through job fairs and assistance with local permitting and approval processes. For information on careers with Hollingsworth, visit https://www.hollingsworthllc.com/careers/.
