America Industrial Guide, a manufacturer of biodegradable and environmentally friendly cleaning products for industrial machinery, has opened a new 10,000 square-foot facility, in East Tampa, which will house manufacturing, warehouse and office functions.
The company closed on the lot, located at 2820 N. 34th Street, in 2021, and is constructing a new building.
America Industrial Guide plans to create 12-15 new jobs, over the next two years, at the facility, in such roles as administration, sales and operations.
America Industrial Guide is the latest manufacturing company to choose Tampa and Hillsborough County for expanded operations, following Cast-Crete, AutoSlide and Norwalt.
The Tampa Bay Economic Development Council connected America Industrial Guide to CareerSource Tampa Bay for recruitment assistance, and other resources, for business assistance.
“Our Tampa Bay Economic Prosperity Foundation is focused on bringing capital investment and job opportunities to East Tampa, through our Inclusive Economic Growth Initiative, and we’re delighted that America Industrial Guide has chosen to make a significant investment in this community,” said Joe Lopano, chair of the Tampa Bay Economic Development Council and chief executive officer of Tampa International Airport. “We look forward to continuing to assist the America Industrial Guide team as they ramp up their operations here.”
