Recent Relocations & Expansions

Relocations and expansions have increased significantly over the past 2 years in North Central Florida including the siting of Klausner Lumber One, LLC in Suwannee County (near Live Oak).  The Klausner expansion in Suwannee County will produce a minimum of 350 new jobs and has already generated hundreds of construction jobs as the facility is being built and infrastructure improvements made.  Klausner is one of Europe’s largest and most highly productive softwood timber manufacturers; its two mills in central Germany produce approximately two million cubic metres of sawn goods annually with a high percentage of its product exported worldwide for construction and packaging purposes.
 
Stahl-Meyer Foods, Inc. recently relocated its plant operations to Madison County bringing 125 new jobs to the region.  Stahl-Meyer processes, packages, and distributes high quality smoked meat products.  Stahl-Meyer’s Corporate offices are in the Bronx, New York; the cost of doing business, the easy access to great transportation infrastructure for distribution, the lack of congested roadways and communities, and excellent quality of life offered in North Florida Central were all factors in their decision to relocate.
 
Other recent relocations and expansions include:
 
Alorica; Palatka (Putnam County), expansion of 400 jobs.
 
Baker County Medical Services; expansion of main medical complex and new construction of Rural Health Clinic, expansion of 75 jobs including additional physicians and other medical and health care personnel. 

AMTEC Less-Lethal Systems, Inc., 100 new jobs in Taylor County.
