Conveyor Consulting and Rubber Company will invest $2 million to build two new production facilities in Pasco County, Florida.
The facilities, one 20,000 and one 12,000 square foot, will both be located in One Pasco Center business park near Interstate 75 and State Road 52. 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. Adding to our capabilities to include manufacturing is very exciting,” said Ron Fernandes, President, Conveyor Consulting and Rubber Company. “I really appreciate the Pasco EDC and Pasco County staff helping us keep the momentum going by expediting permitting and offering us mobility fee waivers. They are committed to helping businesses grow in Pasco.”
According to the Pasco Economic Development Council, the company opened in Pasco County in 2014 and has been rapidly growing ever since.
“The Pasco EDC is always excited to help our current businesses expand and find ways to grow in Pasco County,” said Bill Cronin, President/CEO, Pasco EDC. “Our road network in Pasco provides a unique transportation network across the county and region. Conveyor Consulting and Rubber Company chose their location because it provides them with quick access for distribution. I am thrilled they were able to remain here and continue to grow with us.”
According to economic development officials, company owner Ron Fernandes looked at numerous locations, however he found One Pasco Center to have the direct access to major highways he needed to quickly and efficiently distribute to his clients, and provide easy access for business to business sales.
