The construction of four new buildings is nearing completion at RIDC Park West; two for ConnectiveRX, one for KTA-Tator, and one for VOLLMER of America Corp.
In 2017, RIDC sold 7.5 acres of land in RIDC Park West to Burns & Scalo for development. Since then, Burns & Scalo has built two large office buildings which will be fully occupied by ConnectiveRX, a New Jersey-based technology services company. The new office buildings total 220,000 square feet, featuring a cafeteria and an employee fitness center, as well as sidewalks linking them to nearby hotels, shops, and restaurants. ConnectiveRX’s occupancy will bring 1,500 new permanent jobs to the area.
In 2019, employee-owned consulting engineering firm KTA-Tator acquired a 17.65-acre parcel from RIDC. KTA-Tator was already located at RIDC Park West at the time; it acquired the space it’s occupied since 1981. Upon completion, KTA-Tator’s new building will be a 45,000 square-foot facility that will house all its operations, including metalworking, materials testing, analytical laboratories, training facilities for course offerings, instrument sales and corporate office services.
In 2018, VOLLMER of America Corp acquired a 5.85-acre parcel from RIDC to build a new one-story, 29,300 square-foot facility on the site for sales, service and distribution purposes. The company expects to house 30 employees upon completion.
