Kenco Logistic Services will be adding 25 to 30 new jobs and investing $1.6 million at its current site at the Walthall Enterchange in Chesterfield County, according to information from the county.
Kenco is one of the nation’s leading third-party logistics providers and has grown to over 100 facilities and more than 25 million square feet of warehouse space in 32 states and Canada.
