GREENSBORO (AP) ó Guilford County commissioners have approved nearly $1 million in tax incentives as they try to lure FedEx Ground to bring an operations hub to the area.
The News & Record of Greensboro reported that county leaders approved the package Thursday. But William Connor with FedEx Ground said it will be two months before the company decides whether to bring 259 new jobs and the $100 million investment to the proposed Kernersville location.
The North Carolina site is competing against locations in South Carolina and Tennessee as the company looks to alleviate stress on similar hubs around the Southeast, including one in Charlotte.
