TERRE HAUTE -

Just days after FedEx Corp. (NYSE: FDX) announced it was pulling its plans to build a $259 million small package distribution center in Greenwood, the company says it is growing its operation in Vigo County. FedEx says construction has begun on an expansion of its FedEx Ground distribution center in Terre Haute. A spokesperson for the company tells Inside INdiana Business the addition will it to continue to meet and exceed customer demands in the Terre Haute area.

FedEx is adding more than 19,000 square feet of space to the facility. Financial terms of the expansion are not being disclosed. The company says the facility, which opened in 2011, currently employs about 50 full-time and part-time employees.

"While future staffing additions have yet to be determined, we will add to the workforce as necessary to support increased demand for service in the area," the spokesman said in an email to IIB. FedEx says the addition is part of a nationwide network expansion to boost daily package volume capacity and "further enhance the speed and service capabilities of the FedEx Ground network."

Earlier this week, FedEx cited "projected operational needs" in its decision to halt the Greenwood project, which would have created around 450 jobs.
