SAUGET -- FedEx Corp. is building a $23.5 million ground distribution facility in southwestern Illinois that will process 10,000 packages an hour once fully operational.
Gov. Pat Quinn announced the plans Tuesday in Sauget, just across the river from St. Louis. He touted the company's decision as an endorsement of his administration's efforts to lure business to Illinois.
Quinn's office says the FedEx Ground facility will support 25 full-time jobs and 150 part-time jobs once it opens, in August 2014. FedEx Ground already operates 16 facilities in the state.
Illinois is offering the company tax credits worth $459,000 over 10 years if it meets a commitment to create jobs at the Sauget site and invest in the community.
FedEx Ground specializes in ground shipping of small packages.
