A new $57 million FedEx logistic facility that will create at least 200 new jobs is coming to Dothan, local officials announced Tuesday morning.

Officials from the State of Alabama, Houston County, City of Dothan, and the Dothan Area Chamber of Commerce – Grow Dothan announced that a new $57 million logistics facility will be built in Dothan.

“All roads lead to Dothan and today, we’re going to celebrate that,” Dothan Mayor Mark Saliba said at a press conference on Tuesday. “Project Cant has now become ‘Project Can’ or ‘Project Can Do’ and because of the work of those that are here gathering behind me this morning has made it a reality.”

The 317,000 square-foot FedEx Ground facility will stand on a 70-acre site off of Sam Houston Boulevard located in the Sam Houston Industrial Park.

In a joint statement, Saliba and Houston County Commission Chairman Mark Culver said, “The City of Dothan and Houston County are honored to support our state and local allies and the company to bring this project to our area. This project provides further evidence that our region’s logistical attributes make us a prime option for companies looking to grow their distribution footprint in the southeastern United States.”
