UPS is investing $334 million into its local operations — which will create 435 jobs for Kentuckians.
As the largest employer in Louisville with 25,000+ employees, let’s get into the nuts and bolts of the investment and its impact on the commonwealth:
- In Derby City, the logistics provider will invest $155 million + create the bulk of the new positions — 315 jobs total.
- UPS’ Louisville plans include a new, one million-sqft facility, though the location is currently undetermined.
- The remaining $178 million will go toward another new, one million-sqft facility in Bullitt County, which will create 120 jobs — the location of which is also currently undetermined.
- With UPS Worldport, its 21 supply chain solution warehouses, and eight million sqft of warehouse space, the company’s economic impact on Kentucky accounts for $2.5 billion in annual payroll + 62,000 direct and indirect jobs.
