In 1997, FedEx Ground chose Apollo Subdivision to build a new regional hub. “The proximity to large regional markets such as Chicago was a primary reason the delivery firm RPS chose to build a distribution center here” (The News Gazette, Oct. 21, 1997). The site is one of 28 FedEx Ground hubs in the United States and Canada as of 2005.
The Atkins Group installed the street improvements, utilities and public infrastructure for the FedEx Ground site in Apollo Subdivision, including the signalized intersection and street widening along Market Street. Atkins helped RPS officials secure state incentives and approval for the project.
