MIDWAY — With most of his company’s business coming from the East Coast, Westin Group LLC CEO Neil Jiang was looking for the right spot for a distribution center.
He found it on Coffer Court in the Liberty County Development Authority’s Tradeport East.
The company broke ground Friday on its 250,000-square-foot facility for Westin Furniture, and the company projects to have 80 employees once the distribution center is completed.
