Killark Electric, a global provider of electrical industrial products for harsh and hazardous environments, recently announced plans to break ground on its new 160,000 sq. ft. facility at Fenton Logistics Park near St. Louis, Missouri. The new facility will allow the company to integrate its manufacturing operations, offices and warehouse under one roof.
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 entire development has the potential to create 2,500 to 3,000 permanent jobs, resulting in an estimated $135 million in wages for the region, according to the developer. In addition to Killark, BJC HealthCare’s Clinical Asset Management Division, CoreLink, Alkem Labs, Beckwood Press Co. and BASF will have facilities in the logistics park.
