Spotlight on St. Pete

What our newest businesses say

When it comes down to it, we're a St. Pete company. We've got 72 factories around the world. We've got about 50 million feet of manufacturing space. And I'll tell you: the offers we got to move to other locations? I'm really glad we didn't. We got courted but when it comes down to it, we're a St. Pete company. I think it's great for the community, good for the state of Florida and this is just stage one.
