Earlier this month, the Mebane City Council unanimously approved a performance agreement with the United Parcel Service, which will bring yet another high-profile tenant to Mebane’s North Carolina Commerce Park.
“UPS is looking to invest in Mebane $262 million on a facility,” said City Manager David Cheek. “As part of that facility, they will be employing 451 full-time jobs at a salary of over $65,000, producing an annual payroll of over $30 million, plus benefits. There will likely be some part-time jobs with that.”
UPS will be locating in the North Carolina Commerce Park, which in recent years has attracted the likes of Prescient, Walmart, and Lidl, among others. City Manager Cheek indicated that Windsor Capital is building another speculative building, and Samet also has a speculative building within the Commerce Park.
“We’re excited about this opportunity for Alamance County and for Mebane,” said Mac Williams of the Alamance Chamber.
“Back in 2012, we put together an agreement with Graham, Alamance County, and Mebane, which became known as the North Carolina Commerce Park Partnership. We share all revenues and expenses in that area,” Cheek said.
