After signing a lease in late July, Hubbell-Killark, a global provider of integrated electrical industrial products, is breaking ground on a state-of-the-art, 160,000-square-foot facility at Fenton Logistics Park. With the addition of this new $18 million facility, a total of 240,000 square feet is currently under development at the site of the Former Chrysler Plant in Fenton, Mo.
Hubbell-Killark, a growing company with many consolidation and expansion needs, is relocating to Fenton Logistics Park from Dr. Martin Luther King Drive in St. Louis City. The new facility will allow the company to integrate its manufacturing operations, offices and warehouse under one roof, while optimizing material flow throughout the facility and maximizing production output. The new building, which is expected to be completed by the end of the year, will also be far more energy-efficient. Hubbell-Killark will join BJC’s Clinical Asset Management Division, CoreLink, Alkem Labs and Beckwood Press Co., each of which is already operating within Fenton Logistics Park. In addition, BASF recently announced it will move its 80,000-square-foot agricultural services division to a portion of another building that is currently under construction.
KP Development, the St. Louis-based developer taking the charge to breathe new life into the former Chrysler Assembly Plant, has already invested more than $75 million in current facilities. As it continues to be built out and additional tenants are lined up, Fenton Logistics Park is expected to feature nearly 1.5 million square feet of manufacturing, logistics and warehouse space; 480,000 square feet of office/warehouse and flex space; 182,500 square feet of retail, restaurant and hotel space, and 105 acres of land owned by the BNSF Railway for anticipated additional railroad services. The overall development has the potential to result in 2,500 – 3,000 permanent jobs, pumping an estimated $135 million in wages to the region.
