Below is an exerpt from the North Bay Business Journal’s article by Jeff Quakenbush that we wish to highlight from this good news. We really need to fill our commercial space in Petaluma. Tom Griffith, President the the Petaluma Area Chamber of Commerce had this to say in the January’s Petaluma Business newsletter “Here in Petaluma, we still have about a fifth of our office space still empty, but there is a high level of optimism that the resurgence of the high-tech industries will help fill in those empty spaces.”
The below is an exerpt from yesterday’s Two Petaluma companies buy 155,000sf for expansion – North Bay Business Journal – North San Francisco Bay Area, Sonoma, Marin, Napa counties – Archive.
“The expansion of Moresco Distributing and Keith Giusto Bakery Supply is a continuation of a trend for expansion of industrial-space users in Petaluma, according to Ingrid Alverde, city economic development manager. Recent examples include the addition of 90 jobs with the forthcoming moves of Revive Drinks from Windsor and wholesale-bakery expansion of Rustic Bakery from Marin County.
“I think it indicates the strength in the local economy and a lot of movement,” she said.
So much such movement that a handful of local companies have been vying for spots in several hundred thousand square feet of approved industrial buildings set to be built in south Petaluma.”
