Richfield, OhioNational Interstate Insurance Corp. broke ground on its third Richfield campus building. The five-story, 117,000-square-foot structure will connect the two existing buildings through walkways. The new $25 million development will host approximately 200 employees the company plans to hire in the next few years.

The new hires will benefit from a larger company cafeteria, additional wellness facilities and several outdoor decks and patios. Campus amenities will encourage customer interaction, as the new spaces will be able to host more visitors.

“After months of planning, we are excited to begin construction of what will become the main building on our campus. The construction of this new building is yet another sign to our customers, employees, business partners and the community of our commitment to growth and to Northeast Ohio,” Tony Mercurio, president & CEO of National Interstate, said in a prepared statement.

At completion, National Interstate’s Richfield campus will feature 300,000 square feet of office space housing nearly 1,000 employees. For the selection of staff, National Interstate partnered with JobsOhio, a non-profit organization designed to drive job creation and new capital investment throughout the state. Village of Richfield and the Revere School District are also supportive partners of the insurance company’s expansion project.
