Clearing, grading begins on future UPS site - The Alamance News

Work is proceeding at a pace worthy of the label “overnight express,” as contractors begin to prepare the grounds of a new distribution center that United Parcel Service plans to set up in a publicly-developed business park in the Hawfields area between Mebane and Graham.

UPS ultimately plans to invest hundreds of millions of dollars in this facility. Originally announced as 521,000-square-foot facility, the size evolved into a total square footage of about one million square feet. The site, itself, was also expanded, ultimately to 165.5 acres, within an industrial park that the cities of Mebane and Graham have been developing in tandem with Alamance County’s government in the hinterland south of I-85/40.

In order to secure the shipping giant’s commitment to this location, the three local governments offered UPS nearly $4.5 million in incentives last year provided that the company followed through with its plans for the facility.
