Available High-Tech Facility Means Opportunities for Pasco County
May 7, 2015
When a high-tech manufacturer consolidates into a facility in another state, it casts a dark cloud over local employees and the community. That was the first reaction in Pasco County when optics manufacturer VLOC announced in August 2014 that it would be moving to a sister company in California. But, the silver lining for Pasco is having a turn-key, high-tech manufacturing facility available for a new employer. “It’s not every day that a 45,000 square-foot, climate-controlled manufacturing facility with a Class 10,000 clean room is available on the market,” says John Hagen, President/CEO of Pasco Economic Development Council. “Any high-tech company looking at Tampa Bay will have the option of moving immediately into a superior building.” In addition to the significant footprint, HVAC, and clean room, the building is located in the Trinity area, part of the SR54/56 growth corridor of Pasco County. The building includes heavy power, a considerable backup generator to maintain operations in the event of an outage, and expansion capabilities up to 63,000 square feet. “I think companies will be motivated when they see what this location has to offer, especially in combination with Pasco County’s aggressive job creation incentives and skilled workforce,” Hagen continued. “I am looking forward to see who will ultimately take advantage of this unique opportunity.” The property is being offered through Colliers International Tampa Bay.
