Companies relocate. It’s all part of a thriving job market such as the one in Boulder County Colorado. According to a report in the Boulder Daily Camera, Columbine Plastics Corp. — after 35 years in Boulder — will be moving to the Colorado Tech Center in Louisville. The injection molding company has purchased a 21,500 square foot building there for $2.11 million.
Leasing is up at the Colorado Tech Center, the report noted. The area’s vacancy rate is now below 10 percent, and two more buildings totaling more than 200,000 square feet are planned for the park.
The new home for Columbine Plastics Corp. was previously occupied by Intrex Corp., an aerospace manufacturing firm, the article stated. Intrex moved to a 73,000 square foot facility in Thornton Colorado. With nearly triple the amount of space at its new facility, Intrex expressed satisfaction that it was able to retain all of its employees, expand its manufacturing floor, and even host guests from community colleges and education development from across the country who are interested in aerospace manufacturing.
As for the site that Columbine Plastics is vacating in Boulder: It has been purchased for $2.6 million. The plan is to redevelop that property and neighboring properties into SPARK, also known as Sutherland Park, which is planned as a mixed-use, creative focused development featuring both market rate and affordable townhomes.
