Boxwood Industrial Park, an affiliate company of Harvey, Hanna & Associates, will acquire the former General Motors Automobile Assembly plant from Wanxiang America Inc. later this month.
Plans for the more than 3 million square foot space at 801 Boxwood Road will be announced later, Harvey Hanna officials said.
The site was built in 1946 and operated as a General Motors assembly plant until July 2009.
“This is an exciting time for our community and for our company,” said President E. Thomas Harvey III. “We are confident our vision for this site will create thousands of jobs during construction and thousands more well-paying permanent jobs.”
“We were uniquely positioned to redevelop this site due to our decades of experience repositioning former manufacturing facilities in Delaware,” said COO Thomas J. Hanna. “As a locally owned and operated family business, we are thrilled for the opportunity to return this facility to productive uses that bring in quality companies and quality jobs at livable wages.”
