Manufacturer brings 44 jobs to Lake County Florida
One of the nation’s leading manufacturers of commercial kitchen ventilation equipment, has picked Lake County as the home for its sixth and newest manufacturing facility.
The company began last year to renovating a 51,000 square-foot warehouse at 19930 Independence Blvd. in Groveland that used to be home to the R.A. Siegel flooring company.
The project was made possible because of a partnerships between Enterprise Florida, the Lake County Board of County Commissioners, Metro Orlando Economic Development Commission, Workforce Florida and the Florida Department of Economic Opportunity.
That facility created a capital investment of $6.3 million. It currently has 44 employees, and serves the company’s Florida market, which includes Darden restaurants and 4 Rivers in Orlando, said Robert Chandler, Lake County’s director of economic development and tourism.
