Savage Logistics is changing its name and rebranding as it moves into a new building.
The Richland-based company becomes Apogee Logistics in April, and the corporate rebranding is to align two companies, Savage Logistics and Apogee Group.
The $2 million building is on six acres of land at 1440 Battelle Blvd., just off Stevens Drive in Richland. The land cost $240,000.
Completion date is the end of March.
The two-story Apogee building features about 40,000 square feet of space. A grand fireplace sits in the entry area. There is 10,000 square feet of office space for 36 offices, two conference rooms, two kitchens, four restrooms and a driver’s lounge.
The building will house Savage Logistics/Apogee’s corporate office, warehouse and office rentals. The warehouse has been rented and office space is still available.
There is 30,000 square feet of warehouse area that encompasses three individual warehouses, a driver’s lounge, restroom and shower area.
Salina Savage and Barbara Stone, owners of Savage Logistics, are the general contractors.
Savage, president of Savage Logistics, and her husband Tom are overseeing the construction project.
Savage Logistics worked with Adam Hall of CRF Metal Works of Pasco to design the Nucor building and with Jim Money of Money Engineering on the office layout and design.
Employing only local contractors and small businesses was the target when the project started, and company owners have achieved their goal by 100 percent. Now with the completion around the corner, the company plans to support local businesses with their warehousing and storage needs, and to provide office space for future businesses in Richland.
There will be 5,000 to 7,500 square feet of office space available for rent. Call Salina Savage at 509-430-5611 for pricing.
Savage Logistics is a small woman-owned business that started with two trucks and three trailers, and has grown to 32 trucks and more than 100 trailers.
A year ago, Salina Savage formed another business named Apogee Group with minority partner Northstar and won a multi-million contract support National Nuclear Security Administration globally and is now working in Romania.
