Staff Writer | November 19, 2016
UPS will invest more than $175 million to expand its main Columbus, Oh. ground package hub on the city’s west side.
Delivery   At least 75 new jobs are planned
When completed in the fall of 2018, sorting capacity will double to process more than 63,000 packages per hour.

The 375,000 square-foot-addition and retrofit to the 5101 Trabue Road facility brings advanced technology and operations automation to respond to growing customer needs.

At least 75 new jobs are planned to join nearly 1,800 workers at UPS package facilities in Hilliard and Obetz as well as the airport gateway operations.

Earlier this spring, the Ohio Tax Credit Authority approved UPS participation in an incentive program for the project commitment.
