DETROIT (AP) - A logistics center for a company serving auto equipment manufacturers is coming to Detroit’s east side.

Mayor Mike Duggan and Ambassador Bridge vice chair Matthew Moroun said Tuesday that 150 new jobs will be created with the opening of the 500,000-square-foot Linc facility at the Interstate-94 Industrial Park.

At least 51 percent of the jobs will be filled by city residents. Half the construction workers hired for the project also are expected to be from Detroit. Work on the facility is scheduled to be completed in 2016.

Employment fairs will be held to fill the job openings.

Linc is part of Universal Truckload Services, a firm owned by Manuel (Matty) Moroun and his family. Manuel Moroun also owns the Ambassador Bridge which connects Detroit with Windsor, Ontario, in Canada.
