Logistics Firm Bringing Jobs to Decatur County

Greensburg — One Solution Logistics of Indiana, Inc., a logistics supply company, announced today that it will expand its operations at Honda's Greensburg plant, creating up to 191 jobs by 2012.

The company, which is the sole supplier of parts to Honda's plant in Greensburg, will be hiring production associates, yard drivers, team leaders and managerial support staff to meet the production demands of Honda’s recently announced second shift at the plant.

"Indiana is a national leader in the logistics industry because our workforce is able to quickly adapt as the business climate changes," said Governor Mitch Daniels. “One Solution Logistics has seen great success in Greensburg and this expansion is a good sign that Indiana’s economy continues to grow."

One Solution Logistics will continue to employ 169 full-time Indiana employees. The company plans to begin hiring new workers by the end of this month.

"Our growth has come as a result of Honda Manufacturing of Indiana's success, our ability to perform as a world class logistics supplier and, most importantly, a dedicated, committed workforce," said Randy Cyman, manager of associate services, One Solution Logistics of Indiana, Inc.
