United Parcel Service (UPS) is moving forward on plans for its new Visalia distribution hub this month.
Blueprints call for a 425,000 square foot facility expected to employ 600 people.
Mayor Warren Gubler said he and City Manger Randy Groom met with UPS representatives about a month ago. ”They told us they want to build their plant next year and it will bring 300 more jobs to Visalia,” Gubler said.
UPS bought 58 acres last year at the northeast corner of Plaza and Riggin avenues, the first development that would be north of Riggin in the industrial park.
Asked about the plan, a UPS spokesman said they had no comment.
