UPS will build a new package distribution and warehouse facility in Round Rock following an economic development deal approved by City Council May 12.

The council approved an economic development agreement with United Parcel Service Inc., otherwise known as UPS, to open a warehouse and distribution facility as well as hire at least 314 full-time equivalent employees.

The agreement states UPS will purchase approximately 50 acres of land and invest at least $70 million in facility improvements and personal property. According to a release from UPS, the package processing facility will include automated sorting systems and will house approximately 300 UPS delivery vehicles. The Round Rock building is expected to open at the end of 2018.

“This is a great project for Round Rock as we continue to diversify our economy,” said Ben White, vice president of economic development for the Round Rock Chamber, which handles economic development in the city. “We welcome another Fortune 500 company that is making a significant investment in employment and capital in Round Rock.”

The release states the facility’s team will provide pickup and delivery services to UPS customers in the greater Austin area. In 2014, UPS also announced two new distribution facilities in the Dallas/Fort Worth area and the expansion of its distribution and sorting facility in San Antonio earlier this month, according to the statement.
