Manufacturing and Warehouse Space is Available in Gage County
Friday, December 14, 2018
As NGage continues working with international corporations and promote Beatrice as a prime business location, it is important to highlight the many real estate assets that make this area ripe for growth. Gage County has manufacturing and warehouse space available currently, with additional land ready for development. Our available land is one of our greatest assets and something that has contributed to the significant growth of our manufacturing and light industrial sectors. In particular, foreign companies have found that where land can be difficult to come by and expensive in their home country, it is abundant and affordable in Gage County. When combined with our skilled workforce, this has made Beatrice incredibly attractive to companies like Neapco, Hendrix Genetics, Exmark Manufacturing, Worldlawn Power Equipment and several others.
The Beatrice Industrial Park Has Been a Huge Success
The philosophy “if you build it, they will come” has proven to be true in Beatrice and Gage County. The entire Beatrice Industrial Park started when Neapco purchased a spec building in the 1980’s - now Neapco utilizes a 300,000-square-foot building. The Industrial Park has grown around them as additional companies have made Beatrice their home. With the Park now full, efforts have been spent to create additional commercial space through the construction of spec buildings.
Spec Buildings are Available in Beatrice
One such building is going up next for a Korean import company. Looking to attract additional corporations to Beatrice, the landlord of the Korean company chose to build another 24,000-square-foot space. This is just one example of how the community of Beatrice is forward-thinking and taking steps to prepare for additional growth.
