    Default UPS builds near Mebane City NC

    This new facility will add many jobs to the local economy.

    UPS gets local approval to build $262 million NC facility
    UPS Inc. (NYSE:UPS) may be coming to Mebane, North Carolina.
    Earlier this month, the Mebane City Council approved a “performance agreement” with the Atlanta-based transport and logistics giant to build a $262 million, 525,000-square-foot facility in Mebane’s North Carolina Commerce Park, according to the Mebane Enterprise, a local paper. Mebane is about 32 miles east of Greensboro.
    UPS will be able to process about 45,000 packages per hour at the facility, the paper reported. Mebane City Manager David Cheek told the paper that the company plans to create 451 full-time positions and an unspecified number of additional part-time jobs.
    According to the paper, Cheek said the facility could generate $23.3 million in property taxes for the entities over the first 10 years, well in excess of the $4.6 million being invested.

    A UPS spokesperson declined comment on UPS’ current presence in Greensboro, saying the company does not break out specific facility locations by geography.

    Default Re: UPS builds near Mebane City NC

    UPS is investing heavily in North Carolina.

    UPS to spend $316 million on 2 North Carolina projects
    UPS Inc. (NYSE:UPS) will grow its presence in the Greensboro, North Carolina, area by expanding its hub operations and building a package sortation center in nearby Graham at a cost of $316 million over a four-year period, North Carolina Gov. Roy Cooper’s office said Tuesday.

    The project will create 592 jobs in Guilford and Alamance counties, according to the governor’s office. Projected wage scales will be well above the going pay rates in the counties, the office said.

    The announcement comes less than a month after local authorities approved a “performance agreement” for UPS to build a facility at the North Carolina Commerce Park in Mebane, which is adjacent to Graham. UPS, which typically builds out a project in phases, will be operational at the new location much sooner than four years, according to a company spokesman.
