Growcentia opened its new corporate headquarters in Centerra - Loveland, Colorado.
"Growcentia is proud to call Northern Colorado home, and we look forward to expanding upon our nature-based growing solutions in this region. This new state-of-the-art facility will enable us to accommodate growth for the foreseeable future, heighten the complexity and diversity of our product lines, and expand R&D initiatives to serve both our national and international customers and truly change the way the world grows," said Growcentia's founders in a joint statement.
Last week's grand opening event featured a ribbon-cutting ceremony by the company's founders, Drs. Matthew Wallenstein, Colin Bell, Richard Conant, and other Colorado-based company executives, as well as Loveland Mayor Jacki March and Kelly Jones and Jack Hill of the Loveland Economic Development Department. The 123,000 square-foot Centerra commercial building was developed by McWhinney, of which Growcentia will occupy 30,000 square feet. Broker partners Mike Eyer and Julius Tabert from CBRE and Mike Jenson of Fort Collins Real Estate, and Robert Olson of law firm Dorsey & Whitney, LLP assisted with the lease transaction. Ware Malcomb served as McWhinney's project architect, and Golden Triangle Construction was the general contractor. A relocation from Fort Collins, the new Loveland headquarters is located within Centerra's Industrial District at 4545 Viking Way — will house all company operations, including management, administration, manufacturing, and research and development.
"We are pleased to partner with Growcentia and welcome them to our growing Centerra community," said Clyde Wood, McWhinney's vice president of commercial development for Northern Colorado. "Our best-in-class industrial building, together with a competitive lease rate, was ideally suited for their expanding business needs."
The 30,000-square-foot facility is located in Centerra's industrial district, which is situated within McWhinney's 3,000-acre master-planned community and features two R&D laboratories, two microbiological fermentation manufacturing bays, a blending manufacturing bay, an indoor plant trial and experimentation station, 28-foot clearance warehousing, and shipping capabilities with four loading docks and office space.
"Representing business owners in northern Colorado for over 20 years, and having helped Growcentia with its first move to Fort Collins in 2015, I was honored that they chose me to assist them with their relocation to Loveland," said Mike Jensen, owner, and broker of Fort Collins Real Estate. "Loveland is at the forefront of technological innovation, and Growcentia will make significant contributions to the continued economic growth in the area."
