Maryland Company Will Create 15 Jobs With More Than $2 Million Capital Investment
PINELLAS COUNTY, Fla. (September 15, 2016) – Today, Intellitech announced they have completed their headquarters relocation from Maryland to Pinellas County, Florida. The new facility in St. Petersburg will create 15 jobs and invest more than $2 million in the local community. Intellitech is a manufacturer of liquid filling and closure machinery used in the biotech and pharmaceutical industries.
Governor Scott said, “I am proud to announce today that Intellitech has completed their headquarters relocation from Maryland to Pinellas County. Intellitech chose to move their company to Florida because they were looking for the most business-friendly environment to grow and create new jobs. That is why we are continuing to work each day to cut taxes and make Florida more competitive so we can continue to attract growing businesses.”
The new jobs will be both manufacturing and headquarters-related. Since beginning the relocation from Maryland in December 2015, Intellitech has found new suppliers in Pinellas County, including ComTech Precision Machine, Inc. and Legacy Custom Plastics, LLC, to provide the company’s fabricated and molded proprietary parts. Intellitech recently signed a contract with Pinellas firm, VistaPharm, a manufacturer and distributor of quality generic pharmaceutical products.
Barbara Biller, President of Intellitech said, “We’re celebrating our 21st year in business, and this relocation will help to push Intellitech to our next level of growth. Pinellas’ medical device manufacturing and life sciences sectors make the City of St. Petersburg the ideal location for Intellitech to connect to both our suppliers and customers.”
Florida ranks among the nation’s top 10 states for manufacturing and is home to more than 18,600 manufacturing companies. The state is also home to the nation’s second largest medical device manufacturing industry, third largest pharmaceuticals manufacturing industry, and seventh largest biotech R&D industry.
Crystal Sircy, Executive Vice President and COO of Enterprise Florida, Inc. said, “I want to welcome Intellitech to Florida and thank them for choosing to bring their innovative technology to the state. Florida’s advanced manufacturing and life science industries continue to grow and Intellitech is a great addition to those sectors.”
Partners in this relocation project include Enterprise Florida, Florida Department of Economic Opportunity, Pinellas County, City of St. Petersburg and Pinellas County Economic Development.
Cissy Proctor, Executive Director of the Florida Department of Economic Opportunity, said, “Intellitech’s relocation to Pinellas County shows that our efforts to position Florida as the best place for business are working. Florida’s strong bio-tech and life sciences sector will help grow Intellitech’s business and we are happy to welcome them to the Sunshine State.”
Mike Meidel, Director of Pinellas County Economic Development said, “Intellitech is a great addition to our biotech sector and we’re very pleased Barbara selected Pinellas. I’d like to recognize Governor Scott, Enterprise Florida, the Florida Department of Economic Opportunity, the Pinellas County Board of County Commissioners and the City of St. Petersburg for their support and partnership.”
