The U.S. distribution center for Macmillan Publisher, MPS in Orange County, is getting ready to expand its footprint.
Company officials joined local leaders on Wednesday in breaking ground on a 200,000-square-feet addition to the existing 400,000-square-feet distribution facility along U.S. Route 15, located about half-way between the towns of Gordonsville and Orange.
Charlottesville-based construction firm Martin Horn is the general contractor for the project at the facility that first opened in 1997, and was expanded in 2000. The facility handles all distribution for the United States and Canada, as well as some international customers, according to a release from Orange County Economic Development Director Rose Deal.
Joining company officials for the groundbreaking were members of the Orange County Board of Supervisors, Orange County Economic Development Authority and Orange County Chamber of Commerce.
