choose to locate here,” says Mike Ammann, president & CEO of the San Joaquin Partnership, a
non-profit private economic development organization. “The gross value of agricultural
production in the County for 2010 was nearly $2 billion with more than $25 billion in the other
adjoining counties in the San Joaquin Valley. San Joaquin County remains No. 1 in winegrape
acreage in California and is strong in fruit and nut crops as well as vegetables.”
Ammann adds that the San Joaquin Valley is larger than all other US states in agriculture
production. The Partnership assisted the company, which was represented by broker Tim Pryor, SIOR, of
Mid-Cal Industrial Properties (and a San Joaquin Partnership member), with development fee
estimates, permitting and habitat fee assistance, incentive information as well as information on
local service providers. The total project is 13.4 acres. Phase I will be 14,000 square feet and employ 3-4 people.
Phase II, anticipated to be implemented within 5 years is 30,000 square feet.
