Site work is expected to begin later this summer for the construction of a 104,000-square-foot flex space on a 10-acre lot at Starpointe Business Park. Dan Reitz, executive director of the Washington County Council on Economic Development, made a brief presentation Wednesday morning at the Washington County commissioners’ agenda meeting.

The project is expected to be completed in the first quarter of 2015.

Mach 1 Global Services Inc., a logistics company based in Tempe, Ariz., that deals with on-time inventory and freight forwarding, will be housed in half the new building.

The firm now has 40 employees in the Flex 1 structure at Starpointe, Hanover Township, at the intersection of Routes 22 and 18.

“They do expect to expand,” Reitz said. “They’re bursting at the seams.”

Reitz made the announcement on behalf of Fourth River Development LLC of Pittsburgh and its real estate holdings entity, Sirius Star Partners LP.

In April, the Women Presidents’ Organization named Mach 1 number 49 on its international list of 50 fastest-growing women-owned companies, and last year, Inc. magazine named the firm to its 500/5,000 list of the nation’s fastest-growing private companies. Jamie Fletcher is the entrepreneur named along with Mach 1.

The remaining 51,200 square feet, which will be 10 bays of about 5,000 square feet each, will be available for lease.
