G.G. Distributing Co. has its eye on a facility that was once a U.S. Post Office distribution center in Owentown, TX, near Tyler. The wholesale beverage distribution company wants to consolidate state-wide operations, and is planning a $15 million upgrade to the 100,000-square-foot center.
The firm has also acquired an adjacent 15 acres on which it can build another facility. The former postal distribution center is at 12621 Farm-to-Market Rd. 3311, near Interstate 20.
Smith County Commissioners Court is considering offering a five-year, 80% tax abatement to GG Distributing. In exchange, the company will create up to 160 new jobs. The wholesale beverage distributor currently operates out of Nacogdoches, Longview and Palestine, TX.
