Temple green lights $10 million distribution center

TEMPLE, TX (KXXV) - In an executive session Thursday morning, the City of Temple approved plans for Scott & White Healthcare to build a 100,000 sq. ft. facility.

City manager Jonathan Graham said the company approached city council back in March about plans to build a facility to house medical supplies that would be distributed to area Scott & White clinics.

"It is in our long term interest to make sure that Temple remains an important part of their system," Graham said. "So this is a major distribution center that will serve all of their facilities, not just in Temple, but around the state and it's creating some nice jobs."

The new facility would create over 40 jobs and expand the city's water supply to area residents and businesses. Graham said they often get requests to build from company's outside of city limits, and it was nice to see a plan come from one that's been established here for quite some time.

"I think it's special because they've been a part of our community for a hundred years or so. So anything that really enhances their presence here, it ensures the longtime viability of Temple and is a part of the system is really important to us," Graham said.

The facility will be located on I-35, just north of the Bucee's in Temple. Construction is set to begin in Fall 2015 and is expected to be complete by Fall 2016.
