NY publishing company to expand in Orange County
Macmillan Publishers division will invest $26M, add 10 jobs
MPS, a division of New York-based Macmillan Publishers, will invest more than $26 million to expand its distribution operation in Orange County, creating an estimated 10 jobs, the county announced Wednesday.
The investment will occur over the next three years. MPS is expanding its current 400,000-square-foot facility by 200,000 square feet.
“This is wonderful news for Orange County. MPS has been a valued corporate citizen for the past 25 years, and we are so excited that they have chosen to invest in the community once again,” Rose Deal, Orange County’s economic development director, said in a statement.
Macmillan Publishers is a trade and higher education publishing company that operates in more than 70 countries. It is a division of German family-owned media company Holtzbrinck Publishing Group.
MPS opened its Orange County facility in 1997 and added a returns facility in 2000. The Orange County distribution facility handles all distribution in the U.S. and Canada, as well as some international business.
The county’s economic development authority offered MPS a $250,000 performance tax grant based on MPS’ investment goals.
