Developer: Fortune 100 company almost lined up for Mebane site in Orange County

A large, Fortune 100 company could be announced soon for both a manufacturing and distribution facility in Mebane, according to Justin Parker, vice president of real estate development for Al Neyer’s Raleigh office, which is building the facility.

During a presentation to Mebane’s planning board Monday night, Parker said that the company hopes to be able to announce a “very exciting user” for the 46 acres of the company’s first location in Mebane, at the corner of West Ten and Buckhorn roads.

“It is a Fortune 100 company,” Parker said.

“It is warehouse and distribution and also creating manufacturing jobs, as well.”

“It is in an industry classification that Mebane and western Orange County has long been recruiting for this area,” Parker said. When a reporter pressed as to whether that might be a pharmaceutical-related industry, Parker reiterated his original description.

He seemed to suggest that the company is likely to attract other companies, as well, saying that other companies tend to “cluster around” the potential tenant.

Asked about the potential relationship between Al Neyer’s first project and the second, Parker said there was one.

Preliminary work has begun on Al Neyer’s first Mebane project, also along nearby West Ten and Buckhorn roads.

He did not specify the sort of connection, saying that several options were possible.

“It is a company in name, brand, and function, that other companies tend to cluster around,” Parker concluded.

Getting approval earlier this year was a close call, 3-2:
