Florikan Plans Expansion, Relocation of Facilities
Florikan, a specialist in polymer-coated fertilizer technologies, will be expanding operations to better serve the needs of the companys customers and partners.
“Due to the tremendous support from customers and partners, Florikan has grown to the point where we will be expanding our operations to better serve their needs,” said Eric Rosenthal, president of Florikan. “This expansion will enhance our production and services, making sure that product needs are fulfilled in a timely and efficient manner.”
The relocation will occur in two stages. Effective July 1, 2014, corporate offices will be re-located to 6801 Energy Court, Suite 100, Sarasota, FL 34240. Operations & Manufacturing will continue to operate from current location at 1579 Barber Road, and Distribution & Warehousing will continue to operate from current location at 1523 Edgar Place (pick-up will remain at this same warehouse location).
In Summer 2015, Florikans Manufacturing, Distribution, and Warehousing facilities will be consolidated into a newly constructed, centrally located facility in Wauchula, FL. A grand opening and additional details will be announced at a later date.
“Hardee County and its economic development interests are pleased and excited to participate in the creation and expansion of a new facility for Florikan in Hardee County,” said Bill Lambert, Hardee County economic development director. “We eagerly anticipate the job creation opportunities for our residents and look forward to a long-standing relationship with the company.”
