A west coast industrial broker has notified DCEO of the facility search requirement outlined below.
Existing Chemical Manufacturing Facility Needed
Location: Illinois with easy access to railway. We are also considering other states in the Mid West.
Type: Lease or purchase
Term: Long term
Size: 300,000 SF and up
We will consider all existing chemical manufacturing facilities. Plants with reactors are preferred and must be on a rail line.
For communities with an available existing chemical manufacturing facility, please submit the type of information mentioned above to me, firstname.lastname@example.org by noon, Tuesday, March 9, 2010.
Concerning the deadline, information on existing chemical facilities may be submitted after that date, but the facility information may not make it into a report the site selection advisors must prepare by the end of the week.
Regarding planned investment and employment, that data is not known at this time. It depends on a couple variables. Also, there is not interest in build-to-suit offers at the present time.
Thank you advance.
