Goodwill Industries of Fort Worth said Friday it has purchased the former DP&P Construction building at 2514 Mansfield Highway, next to the current Goodwill headquarters at 4005 Campus Drive.

Goodwill said it will move its contracts workshop and day-habilitation center to the newly purchased 7,000-square-foot building, allowing it to expand its recycling and retail operations at the Campus Drive building.

Goodwill said it has a “growing bottleneck” in its donation and distribution warehouse.   “We are busting at the seams,” said David Cox, president and CEO of Goodwill Industries of Fort Worth.

“In last two years alone, we’ve opened three new donation centers, one new retail store – with another in the planning stages, rebranded and reopened the Job Resource Center and expanded our recycling program,” he said. This purchase is vital to continuing to grow our services.”

Goodwill said the moves are a “precursor to adding more retail stores, additional donation sites and expanding employment and job training opportunities through mission services.”
