WHITMORE LAKE, MI-Con-Way Central Express, a regional freight carrier and a business unit of Con-Way Transportation Services Inc., announced today that it will open a new Ann Arbor area service center on June 30.

The 26,000-sf, 54-door facility will be located on 13 acres at 11751 Green Oak Industrial Drive in Whitmore Lake, MI. It replaces a smaller 18-door service center in Ypsilanti. Company officials said employment at the new facility would increase by about 16 persons.

“We opened the Ypsilanti service center in 2000 to assist in moving increasing freight volumes generated by our Detroit and Jackson facilities and to be closer to our growing customer base in Ann Arbor and the surrounding communities,” said David S. McClimon, president and CEO of the company. “Three years later, our growth in business has required us to build this larger facility that will triple our daily freight handling capacity.”

Markets served by the facility will include: Saline, Milan, Ypsilanti, Hamburg, Whitmore Lake, Brighton, Wixom, Walled Lake, Novi, Milford, New Hudson, South Lyon, Commerce, Pinckney, Salem and Ann Arbor.
