Online PR News – 01-December-2010 – – Design/Build firm Primus Builders and site location specialist Garner Economics have announced a significant partnership, which will create one of the most extensive site certification initiatives ever for communities seeking to attract companies in the food and beverage industry.
According to Tony Pitrone, Vice President of Atlanta-based Primus, and Jay Garner, President of Garner Economics, the rationale behind the certification program is to help communities succeed by giving them a competitive edge in pursuing food & beverage companies.
“Speed to market continues to be an important factor with our clients in selecting sites or buildings. When we evaluate a community for one of our food clients, we analyze hundreds of variables that our clients consider important in the selection process. By having a Primus / Garner Certified Food Site, you are ahead of your many competitors in showing food and beverage clients that your site meets the rigorous criteria that many companies are reviewing in their siting process,” commented Pitrone and Garner.
The Primus/Garner Food Processing Site Certification includes a concise database record for hundreds of valuable criteria and variables necessary to support the critical business decisions of a Food Industry Manufacturer, considering a potential location.
The certification process begins with a comprehensive labor analysis by Garner Economics economist Tom Tveidt, focused on the workforce requirements of the food and beverage industry. This presents solid information to help persuade the community’s prospective clients of the value of the site. Both Primus and Garner technical experts will conduct field analysis of the site(s) to analyze its location and value for companies engaged in the food and beverage industry. A building layout from Primus engineers is also included, so that a prospective client can see how a building may be defined on the site(s) analyzed. Ultimately, the community will be provided a report with the Primus / Garner Food Site Certification label, or in some cases, an action plan detailing specific measures needed to achieve the Certification.
It is believed that this new certification tool will allow for a smoother and faster selection of optimum sites, to the benefit of both the company seeking a location and the community that is chosen.
