Adding to its existing 107,000 square foot operations facility at the El Paso International Airport, United Parcel Service, Inc., is signaling its faith in continued trade growth between the U.S. and Mexico.
The expansion of that facility will add some 42,000 square feet to UPS’s airport location and will be a part of the larger North American Borderplex, a defined manufacturing region that includes Texas, New Mexico, and Ciudad Juarez, Chihuahua, Mexico.
Like the original UPS operations center at the El Paso Airport, the 42,000 square-foot expansion will be dedicated to moving appliance, automotive, and electronics components, among other items, across the border.
Located at a rectangular-shaped site at 28 Leigh Fisher Boulevard, the UPS Operations Center is part of a larger UPS network that includes more than 1,800 operations centers as well as an excess of 5,000 UPS Stores.
The Sandy Springs, Georgia-based logistics and package delivery company saw revenues of more than $60 billion in 2016.
Members of the El Paso City Council have voted to approve some $1.8 million in incentives, including property tax rebates, for the UPS facility expansion project.
