Great Western Industrial Park partners with real estate firm
Great Western Industrial Park officials announced yesterday they have forged a new partnership with real estate firm Newmark Grubb Knight Frank to attract more businesses to the Windsor, Colo.-based site.
Developed by OmniTRAX Inc. and its Broe Group affiliates, the park is part of a coordinated, master planned development that has "quickly become an epicenter of manufacturing and distribution," OmniTRAX officials said in a press release.
The park is served by OmniTRAX's Great Western Railway of Colorado LLC.
"With the industrial renaissance happening in the U.S., we are seeing an increase in companies that need to move large quantities of their products far distances, and rail has always been the effective way to do that," said Tony Manos, OmniTRAX's senior vice president of industrial development.
The park provides an opportunity for businesses to locate at a dual rail served property. Users will have access to the Union Pacific Railroad and BNSF Railway Co., Manos said.
"It is getting extremely difficult to find rail serviced properties like the sites at the Great Western Industrial Park," said Mike Wafer, executive managing director of Newmark Grubb Knight Frank. "We're excited with the opportunity to help companies with very specialized needs find properties that are a fit."
