Friday, March 01, 2013, Vol. 128, No. 42

NEW HAVEN, Ind. (AP)FedEx Corp. plans to build a $25 million distribution center in northeastern Indiana that's expected to create nearly 90 jobs.

The News-Sentinel reports that an application for tax "phase-ins" filed with Allen County officials says FedEx will invest $12.5 million in a new 178,000-square-foot distribution center on about 40 acres in New Haven.

The Memphis-based package delivery company will also spend a similar amount on equipment needed to handle, sort and distribute materials. The application says FedEx expects the project just east of Fort Wayne to create 87 part-time jobs.

Construction of the complex is expected to begin in May with a completion date slated for September 2014.

FedEx's existing New Haven facility has about 34 full-time employees.
