Oak Park, Michigan Shares Their Excitement About New FedEx Ground Facility
FedEx Ground recently hosted a groundbreaking event in Oak Park, Michigan for a new 300,000 square-foot distribution center that is scheduled to open in August 2016.
The station will join three existing FedEx Ground facilities serving the Detroit area. About 220 employees are expected to work at the station when it opens next summer with most of them transferring from the other stations. To commemorate entering the Oak Park community, the company presented Forgotten Harvest, a local organization that collects food that would have been discarded from restaurants and other locations to distribute to people in need in the area.
