KELOWNA, B.C. — Federal Express Canada has unveiled two new facility expansions located on Airport Way in Kelowna. The expansions include a new office, a customer service facility with a world service centre front counter, and a new sorting and warehouse facility. Officials said the facility was recently expanded to better serve FedEx customers doing business in and with the fast-growing British Columbia Interior market.
“We are proud to unveil our new facility today,” said Pina Starnino, vice-president of Operations with FedEx Express Canada. “This location has a 20-year history in the community and we believe the expansions will further stimulate business in Kelowna and into the Interior. We look forward to growing with this community for another 20 years.”
The Kelowna operations began in the early 1990s with a single courier. Volume has grown over the past two decades and today there are more than 20 employees serving Penticton, Westside, Vernon, Armstrong, Lake County and Kelowna.
“Our expanded facility is evidence of the market growth in Kelowna and the B.C. Interior,” Starnino said. “As we look to the future, we see continued expansion and expect to make further service enhancements for our customers and offer additional opportunities for our employees.”
The Kelowna facility provides ground transportation and serves as a feeder aircraft operation.
