​​​IRVING – San Francisco-based McKesson Corp. yesterday announced plans to spend $157 million on an expansion that will bring around 1,000 new jobs to the region.

The health care services and information technology company had been shopping for a new regional hub for some time. Real estate sources said in February that McKesson was working a deal to fill the former NEC buildings near SH 161 and SH 114 in Irving.​

McKesson will add at least 975 new jobs. Currently, the company has 900 working in North Texas.

As part of the expansion deal, the Texas Enterprise Fund gave McKesson a grant offer of $9.75 million. This is the largest such grant awarded by Gov. Greg​ Abbott's administration.​

McKesson will become the city's largest real estate deal in the last decade. It will have an estimated $4.7 billion total economic impact over the next decade.
