WASHINGTON (AP) — An Italian-based manufacturer of automated storage and retrieval systems has announced that it will invest $26.5 million to establish a new manufacturing and logistics facility in Warren County.

Modula made the announcement Tuesday in Washington D.C. It said the facility will be in the city of Franklin, roughly 40 miles north of Cincinnati, off I-75. The building, located at 5000 Commerce Center Drive, was once occupied by Cox Media Group Ohio’s Print Technology Center, the Journal-News reports.

The company said the investment will provide 100 jobs, expand Modula's manufacturing capacity and increase its access to customers across the country.

Modula says it has more than 15,000 customers around the world and a production plant in Lewiston, Maine, in addition to plants in Italy and China.

Modula Inc. Chief Executive Officer Antonio Pagano was joined Tuesday by U.S. Secretary of Commerce Wilbur Ross and Ohio Gov. Mike DeWine, both Republicans.
