What will UACJ Do with Flagstaff, Arizona’s Former Walgreen’s Center?


In Flagstaff, Arizona sits an empty building that was once a Walgreen’s Distribution Center. Now though, the facility will soon have work done on it so it can serve as a manufacturing facility for UACJ Automotive Whitehall Industries. The facility should be ready by April. In order to make this possible, the company is investing $60 million toward the project. In addition, they also plan to create 120 new jobs for now. And, that number is should to increase to 350 over the next several years. So this will be a great addition to the area’s economy and the job market!

From Area Development Magazine:

“Northern Arizona makes sense for us because of location, ease of transportation, and an already well-established manufacturing sector within the community. We also look forward to partnering with North Arizona University as our processes are highly automated and technical.” […]

“Today’s announcement represents a historic investment for Northern Arizona and our entire state. […] As an industry-leading producer of electric vehicle parts, UACJ Whitehall will further bolster Arizona’s reputation as a global hub for electric vehicle manufacturing. We look forward to supporting UACJ Whitehall’s growth and success in our state.”
