According to correspondence between the United States Postal Service and the national American Postal Workers Union, the Eastern Maine Processing and Distribution Center in Hampden will not be consolidated with Maine’s other processing facility in Scarborough.

“The Eastern Maine P&DC will remain open and will be modernized,” the Postal Service said in its Jan. 12 letter. “It is expected that this facility will be a critical node to the unified movement of mail and packages across the regional processing and transportation ecosystem.”

In November, the USPS said it was reviewing the facility as part of the agency’s 10-year plan to invest $40 billion into modernizing the nation’s aging processing and delivery network. That announcement drew criticism from U.S. Sen. Susan Collins, who sent a letter to Postmaster General Louis DeJoy warning him that consolidating Maine’s two mail processing facilities would be disastrous.
