ATLANTA, Feb. 16, 2000 - Airis Holdings, LLC, Atlanta, announced today the completion and opening of a new sort and distribution facility for FedEx Corp. at the Louisville International Airport. Airis designed, built and owns the facility, which is set to open February 16. FedEx, a $17 billion global transportation and logistics enterprise, will lease the facility from Airis.

"FedEx wants to dedicate its capital expenditures to buy more airplanes and trucks, not to own and operate buildings," said David C. Garrett III, Airis' president. "That's where our expertise and knowledge in building and operating facilities come into play. In a business where time means money, we are very pleased to have delivered this project to FedEx in budget and ahead of schedule."

The 112,000 square-foot complex and its adjacent aircraft ramp will process 6,000 packages per hour and house several other FedEx services, including a customer service center. FedEx specified and installed the state-of-the-art sort equipment system.
