The Keith Corporation Continues to Put Its Faith in Lincoln County

Wednesday, May 18, 2005

The Keith Corporation continues to put its faith in the strong economic climate of Lincoln County. The Keith Corporation has purchased a 63,870 existing industrial facility on 22.72 acres in the Indian Creek Industrial Park in Lincoln County.

The available facility, known as the Kawai building, will be The Keith Corporation’s first venture in the Indian Creek Industrial Park. This established park is home to a diverse group of industries including international companies Robert Bosch Tool Corporation Distribution Center and Hof Textiles Inc. and pharmaceutical manufacturer Alpharma USPD.

According to Alan Lewis, Industrial Development Partner with The Keith Corporation, “the Kawai building has been immaculately maintained and is functional for a wide range of industrial tenants. That combined with the low tax structure and pro-business attitude of Lincoln County made the investment decision easy.”

The Kawai building offers many attributes for manufacturing uses, including 100% air conditioned production area, a compressed air loop with compressor and dryer, painted roof structure, parking for 75 employees, and 6,046 sq. ft. of attractive offices. Other attributes include 30’ x 40’ column spacing, 20’ to 21’8” ceiling height, (4) dock high doors, and (2) drive-in doors.

Lincoln County has proven to be a successful area for The Keith Corporation. The company developed two shell buildings in the Lincoln County Industrial Park that are now occupied by R.W. Garcia Company, a tortilla chip manufacturer and Australian Manufacturing, a manufacturer of licorice. The company has also developed facilities in Lincoln County for RSI Home Products and Crate and Barrel.
