FedEx to Open Distribution Center in Theodore

A major distribution center for FedEx Ground is projected to bring more than 100 full-time jobs to the area at peak operation of its new facility, expected to be complete in early 2016 in the southwest end of Mobile County.


Mobile Industrial Properties LLC will further develop a road and associated infrastructure in a commercial park in Theodore, including constructing a roadway and enhancing drainage in the 158-acre park, located near Exit 13 off Interstate 10. Currently there is one distribution center at the park.


“This is a win-win situation for Mobile County,” said Jerry Carl, the Mobile County commissioner for the project’s district. “The development of the property will result in significant opportunities for recruitment of commercial and light manufacturing businesses, which in turn will bring more jobs to our area.”


“The Chamber worked with the developer and Mobile County, helping facilitate a good solution for both parties,” said Troy Wayman, the Mobile Area Chamber’s vice president of economic development.


FedEx Ground will occupy approximately 193,375 square feet of warehouse and distribution space being built on the property by SAAD Development Corp.
