Groundbreaking held in Hancock County for Spectra Premium’s new distribution facility


Hancock Economic Development Council congratulates Spectra Premium on the groundbreaking for their new distribution facility, held Tuesday, June 18, 2019.

Philip Fallis, Spectra Premium Director of Corporate Distribution for North America.

“Spectra has had a presence here in Hancock County since 1995,” said Phillip Fallis, director of corporate distribution for North America, “with our location in Knightstown adding  the current location in 2013. Now, we are here in 2019 looking to future growth, in a new distribution facility. It is only possible  because of our family of associates who create the environment to succeed.”

Fallis said Indiana and Hancock County are global logistics leaders and offer Spectra Premium a strong competitive advantage when it comes to reaching North American and world markets.

“As the “Crossroads of America,” Indiana ranks in the top 10 amongst 46 significant logistics-related  categories across the U.S. Indiana is a national leader in pass-through interstates and truck tonnage,  experiencing more interstate commerce than any other state. Indiana is home to the 2nd largest FedEx air hub worldwide and is 3rd in total freight railroads. Our state is first nationally with 14 pass-through interstates. Indiana’s highways consist of 1,266 miles,  which connect 82 million people within a 500-mile radius of the state’s border. Indiana’s excellent highway network is accessible to 80% of the population of both the United States and Canada within 24 hours. This makes Indiana the first choice for business.”
