S.S. White Technologies Relocates Headquarters to Seminole, Florida
The company will base its headquarters operations, manufacturing, research and development at a 90,000 square foot facility in Seminole. S.S. White currently employs 116 staff at its new Florida headquarters.
“Moving a manufacturing plant from New Jersey to Seminole was a huge task, but well worth it. We feel very welcome in Pinellas County, shared Rahul Shukla, CEO of S.S. White Technologies. “We’ve hired 80 well-qualified employees in the factory and our offices. We find the weather and the community very hospitable, taxes less painful and the sunsets magical. My only regret is that we didn’t move to Florida many years earlier.”
S.S. White specializes in manufacturing for aircraft, automotive and medical products. Every aircraft flying today, with the exception of Russian aircraft, has at least one part manufactured by S.S. White. In addition to its new headquarters in Seminole, the company has operations in the United Kingdom and India.
“We’re honored to welcome Rahul and his team at S.S. White to Pinellas County. It is easy to see the passion he has for his products, his process and especially his people,” said Commissioner Kenneth T. Welch, Chair of the Pinellas County Board of County Commissioners. “I want to say thank you for choosing Seminole and continuing S.S. White’s commitment to manufacturing excellence within our community.”
“Seminole is proud to be the new home of S.S. White’s international headquarters,” said City of Seminole Mayor Leslie Waters. “The Seminole community, Rahul and S.S. White share a commitment to our community, service and hard work. We think it is a perfect match.”
Pinellas County, in partnership with the City of Seminole, Duke Energy and the State of Florida, competed against sites in New Jersey to win this relocation project.
“Manufacturing is an essential part of our Pinellas County economy,” said Mike Meidel, Director of Pinellas County Economic Development. “We’re honored to add S.S. White, a storied company that has become a leading innovator in a very competitive sector, to our business community.
