UPS

PLAINFIELD - UPS, the world’s largest package delivery company, plans to expand its operations in central Indiana, building a new, state-of-the-art hub in Plainfield. As part of its growth plans, the company plans to create up to 578 new, high-wage jobs by 2023.


"This major investment by UPS is more evidence that Indiana is a global logistics powerhouse," Governor Eric J. Holcomb said. "Our state's top-ranked infrastructure network has been key to growing our economy - especially in the manufacturing and logistics sector. That's why state lawmakers doubled-down on roads and bridges this year, advancing a 20-year, data-driven infrastructure plan. As companies like UPS connect Hoosier businesses to customers around the globe, we'll do our part to strengthen Indiana's status as the crossroads of America - and the world."


The company will invest more than $260 million to construct and equip a new 893,000-square-foot hub on Bradford Road in Plainfield. Construction is underway on the facility, with plans to begin operations in Plainfield later this year. When completed in the fall of 2019, the UPS facility will offer new efficiencies and flexibility for processing capacity across its Indianapolis campuses, including facilities on West 81st Street, West 16th Street and East 86th Street in Castleton.  
 
UPS will begin hiring for package handling and driver positions this fall, with plans for training to begin at the company’s Indianapolis facilities and for workers to transfer as initial operations begin in Plainfield. These positions are expected to pay an average wage 45 percent higher than the state average wage.

"Central Indiana is a logistics gateway for efficient transportation networks that enhance UPS reliability and service," said Kevin Church, president of UPS's Ohio Valley District which includes Indiana, Kentucky and Southern Ohio. "Support from local and state leaders lets us be nimble to apply new technologies and equipment together with our people for flexibility to manage growth from e-commerce, healthcare and manufacturing."
