FedEx is building a new distribution center in Pittsburg. The City of Pittsburg and Pittsburg Area Chamber of Commerce made the announcement today.
Construction on the new 250,000 square-foot FedEx Ground facility is currently underway next to Kansas Crossing Casino. The distribution center is the latest example of the significant growth in Pittsburg and is expected to employ a mix of full and part-time team members.
The City of Pittsburg and Pittsburg Area Chamber of Commerce worked with the developer, Kansas Crossing Casino, the Kansas Governor’s office, and the Kansas Department of Transportation for nine months to bring this project to fruition. According to Kansas Governor Laura Kelly, the completion of the four-lane U.S. 69 highway expansion to Pittsburg was a critical part of this business investment in Southeast Kansas.
The new distribution facility is slated to open in October of 2022.
