CINCINNATI, OHIO – April 9, 2021 – REDI Cincinnati and JobsOhio today announced fast-growing online auto retailer Carvana has acquired more than 100 acres in Trenton, Ohio. Carvana plans to develop a new service and distribution facility there, creating a projected 400 new jobs. The company plans to invest more than $24 million to build a 200,000-square-foot facility at the Trenton Industrial Park, where the company will inspect, repair, and store vehicles for customers who shop carvana.com.
“Carvana has been growing extremely rapidly over the last several years, and we are working to bring The New Way to Buy a Car® to even more customers all the time,” said Carvana Vice President of Inventory Strategy Brian Boyd. “As part of our efforts to scale the business, we’re looking forward to working with REDI Cincinnati and JobsOhio to open a vehicle inspection and reconditioning center, and becoming a member of the Trenton community.”
Known for its easy, transparent online car buying experience, Carvana plans to build an inspection, reconditioning, and distribution facility that is strategically positioned within the company’s national logistics network to help service their growing customer base. Carvana allows customers to shop more than 20,000 vehicles on Carvana.com, as well as finance, purchase, then select as-soon-as-next-day touchless home delivery or Car Vending Machine pick-up. Carvana vehicles are inspected, reconditioned and photographed in 360-degrees at its inspection centers, like the one planned in Trenton, so customers get a detailed, high-definition virtual tour of every vehicle. Additionally, every vehicle comes with a seven-day return policy, so the customer can live with their vehicle for a week and ensure it fits their life.
KSM Location Advisors is pleased to have negotiated $3.2 million in incentives for Carvana.
