Industrial distributor McMaster-Carr moving ahead with regional headquarters in Fort Worth

E-commerce industrial distribution company McMaster-Carr will move ahead with the construction of its regional headquarters and distribution center in North Fort Worth next month.

A filing with the Texas Department of Licensing and Regulation shows building on the climate-controlled facility and office space will begin so that McMaster-Carr can have the site up and running by 2028.

The facility, in Hillwood’s AllianceTexas development, will utilize both automation and human capital to supply industrial parts to local and national customers.

McMaster-Carr is a supplier of hardware, tools, raw materials, industrial materials and maintenance equipment.

The Fort Worth City Council last year agreed to give the Illinois-based company an $18 million grant to build its Southwest regional headquarters on the 117-acre site at 4894 Litsey Road. To receive the grant, the company must commit to spending at least $180 million to develop the site and $180 million on personal property.

McMaster-Carr is expected to have 150 full-time employees within its first year of operation and 250 full-time employees within its first six years. Jobs must pay an average salary of $85,000 to get the city incentives.

The construction cost listed on the TDLR filing is $225 million, though the projected investment total between the development of the site and personal property is $360 million.

Corgan is listed as the project’s design firm.
