UPS Inc. said today it will add 42 percent more package-processing capacity and 200,000 square feet to its hub in Lenexa, Kan., bringing to 430,000 square feet the size of the hub when work is completed in 2020.
In addition, Atlanta-based UPS said it will construct a 197,000-square-foot facility in Edgerton, Kan., 25 miles south of Lenexa. The facility will be ready in the fall, UPS said.
The projects represent a more than $220 million investment in Kansas and are expected to add 100 jobs over the next five years, UPS said. The company participated in the state's "Promoting Employment Across Kansas" (PEAK) economic development program. Program incentives include tax credits as well as workforce recruiting and training assistance.
Lenexa is 15 miles south of Kansas City, Mo.
