The Wood County Port Authority, which is handling funding for the Calphalon distribution center Ohio 25 near its intersection with Ohio 582, approved another $1.3 million payment on Monday.
The money goes to developer Insite, which is working on the project.
Rex Huffman, the Port Authority's general counsel, said that this most recent payment leaves about $3 million to pay on the $11 million project.
The Calphalon building is about 75 percent complete. It is expected to be finished by the end of March, with the company starting to move in in May.
The 363,000-square-foot warehouse will consolidate work now done at two other sites. It will employ the 83 people presently working at two Toledo sites. Another 33 new jobs are expected to be created over the next five years at the new distribution site and the existing Calphalon manufacturing plant in Perrysburg Township.
Also at the board's Monday meeting, the authority hired Feller, Finch of Maumee, to be the construction manager for a project to upgrade a half-mile section of Potter Road in Henry Township. 
The road will lead to a new warehouse being developed in Henry Township.
The road project is expected to cost about $400,000. The management contract is for about $15,000.
