BluePearl Veterinary Partners, a national leader in veterinary medicine, plans to expand its headquarters, with the construction of a 4,800 square foot building for its support services team, at 3000 Busch Lake Boulevard in Tampa, Florida. The company is investing $1 million in the project, with plans to double its workforce and add 50 additional associates within three years.
“We’re very excited to be adding more talented people and a brand new building at our headquarters,” said Darryl Shaw, BluePearl Veterinary Partners CEO. “Tampa has always been our home, and we are happy to be creating new jobs and opportunities with our support services team as we continue opening veterinary hospitals across the United States.”
BluePearl Veterinary Partners was founded in Tampa by Darryl Shaw and his brother, Neil Shaw, DVM. The veterinary specialty and emergency medical practice grew rapidly and expanded nationwide, with much of that growth occurring since 2008, Tampa Hillsborough Economic Development Corporation officials said.
As an incentive, Hillsborough County will assist Blue Pearl with an expedited permitting process that is designed to save businesses time and money. The project was made possible through strong partnerships between Hillsborough County and the Tampa Hillsborough Economic Development Corporation.
“BluePearl Veterinary Partners has been a valuable member of our community for nearly two decades, providing exceptional care for the beloved pets of thousands of people in Hillsborough County and beyond,” said Sandra Murman, Chair of the Hillsborough County Board of County Commissioners. “We’re committed to promoting the growth of outstanding local headquarter companies like BluePearl and will do all we can to support their continued success.”
“The expansion of BluePearl highlights the support and resources that our local partners are providing to help existing businesses stay here, prosper, and build an exciting future for their companies, their employees, and Hillsborough County,” said Rick Homans, President/CEO of the Tampa Hillsborough Economic Development Corporation.
