Kroger, Ocado Break Ground on $55M Customer Fulfillment Center in Southwest Ohio

MONROE, OHIO — The Kroger Co. and Ocado, a dedicated online grocery retailer, have broken ground on their first customer fulfillment center. Cincinnati-based Kroger is investing $55 million to build the property, which will be situated in the southwest Ohio city of Monroe. The automated warehouse facility will have digital and robotic capabilities and will span 335,000 square feet. The model will be replicated in other locations, as Kroger plans to build 20 such facilities. To date, two additional sites have been selected in the central Florida and Mid-Atlantic regions. The Ohio facility is expected to generate more than 400 new jobs. Ryan Cos. US Inc. is designing and building the property. In May 2018, Kroger and UK-based Ocado announced their partnership in order to provide online ordering, automated fulfillment and home delivery capabilities.
