DiversiTech Corporation Opens Manufacturing Plant in Leesburg, Florida
County officials noted the company is best known for its line of air conditioning condenser pads. Headquartered in metro Atlanta, the company maintains over 1 million square feet of manufacturing and distribution space in key U.S., Canadian and European locations.
"DiversiTech made the investment in Leesburg to expand our concrete manufacturing capacity and to improve service to our Florida customers by taking advantage of the central location and the terrific workforce. The Leesburg plant is our second manufacturing plant in Florida and our seventh manufacturing plant in the US," said DiversiTech CEO Andy Bergdoll.
According to Lake County’s Office of Elevate Lake, as a result of the company's sales demonstrating consistent growth in the state of Florida, DiversiTech Corporation chose Lake County for its new location to expand their business. The project, known as Project Breeze, is in Florida’s qualified target industry and designated high-impact sector, advanced manufacturing, and was approved for Florida’s Qualified Targeted Industry (QTI) incentive program.
"On behalf of the Board of County Commissioners and Lake County residents, we are pleased to welcome DiversiTech to Leesburg and Lake County. We appreciate the collaborative efforts of the City of Leesburg and Elevate Lake to help bring this project to fruition, and are honored that DiversiTech has chosen to invest in our community," said Lake County Commissioner Vice Chair Wendy Breeden.
The company will create a minimum of 25 jobs with an average annual wage commitment of at least $37,620 and will invest more than $2 million in capital improvements onsite. The state’s total incentive amount is $125,000 over a five-year period, with Lake County committing to $25,000 of the total.
The Office of Elevate Lake, the City of Leesburg and Enterprise Florida worked together to attract DiversiTech Corporation to Lake County. "The City is extremely proud to be the Florida home of DiversiTech. DiversiTech is a great company that will bring quality jobs and great investment to our community, but more than that, DiversiTech’ s operations are perfect match for the Leesburg/Lake County economy, " said Leesburg City Manager Al Minner.
