Location, workforce, and connectivity for more profitable manufacturing
North Florida Mega Industrial Park offers a combination of location, connectivity, and resources that makes it the ideal site for a wide variety of manufacturing and light industrial facilities. Start with the more than 800,000 workers who live within a one-hour drive of the park, ensuring a steady supply of skilled workers in a region known for affordable wages. (Florida is now the nation’s third-most-populous state.)
The 2,622-acre park offers sites from a single acre to 410 acres. Manufacturers whose processes require significant amounts of utilities will appreciate the 115 kV transmission-level service, large gas main, and more than 5 million gallons/day of excess fresh water capacity. The park’s location provides a solid transportation backbone that connects our region to all of Florida, the Southeast, and even the nation and world. That backbone allows same-day service to consumer markets totaling more than 60 million people, as well as other manufacturing facilities in those markets, making it easier to obtain subassemblies or supply others’ production lines.
With 3 miles of frontage along U.S. Highway 90, the park is within a 15-minute drive of both Interstates 10 and 75, ensuring fast routing anywhere in the Southeast. A CSX mainline runs just north of the park, with an easement for a rail spur into the park. A nearby Norfolk Southern line presents the potential for dual-carrier service. Both rail and highway provide fast, efficient service to the nearby JAXPORT ocean facilities. Five airports serve the area, with Delta, DHL, and FedEx freight service available through Tallahassee Regional Airport. The adjacent Lake City Gateway Airport is home to HAECO, a major aircraft refurbishing company and an 8,003-foot runway capable of serving almost any aircraft.
