PASCO COUNTY, FLORIDA (September 29, 2020) — The Pasco Economic Development Council (Pasco EDC) is pleased to announce the expansion of Conveyor Consulting and Rubber Company in Pasco County. The company opened in Pasco County in 2014 and has been rapidly growing ever since.

The expansion also includes new manufacturing capabilities for conveyor parts and systems.

“Our company continues to grow, and we are expanding to meet the demand of our clients.
