$9.5M facility expansion will include combination of office space and distribution facility
Titusville, Fla. – (June 12, 2013) – Rabits & Romano Architecture, Planning and Design has been selected to design a 180,000 square-feet project near the Titusville airport that is expected to generate 65 new jobs for the local community.
Eckler’s, which provides auto parts for car enthusiasts, chose the veteran Central Florida architectural firm to design its new office and distribution center along Grissom Parkway.
Eckler’s, founded in 1961, is the nation’s largest supplier of auto parts to restoration enthusiasts for Chevrolet, Ford, Mercedes-Benz and Porsche. The company has the broadest selection of parts and accessories in the industry with nearly 130,000 products available. The new project will house many of these in-demand products.
Initial designs are expected to be completed by the end of July. Construction will begin later this summer. The project will include offices for Eckler’s, becoming their headquarters, as well as storage space for the automotive supply company.
Rabits & Romano has nearly 30 years experience designing and managing commercial and industrial projects throughout Florida.
“It’s always rewarding to work on assignments that generate new jobs for the community and also breathe more economic vitality to an area that has been hit by the changing landscape of our space program,” said Bob Rabits, Managing Partner of Rabits & Romano. “We are honored to be selected by Eckler’s and look forward to working diligently to make sure the new headquarters stays on track.”
