Titusville, Fla. – (March 25, 2014) – Rabits & Romano Architecture has completed design work on a 180,000 square-foot office and industrial project for Eckler’s Family of Automotive Parts Companies near the Titusville airport.
Construction on the project alongside Grissom Parkway is now underway with Marbek Construction as the general contractor. Rabits & Romano is providing the design and construction management and the project is expected to be completed in July of this year.
“We have enjoyed working with the City of Titusville and the Titusville-Cocoa Airport Authority on this critical economic project for the region. Eckler’s provides classic auto parts worldwide and this new office will become their official headquarters in creating more than 60 new jobs,’’ said Bob Rabits, Managing Partner of Rabits & Romano.

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.
Construction will begin later this summer and the expansion will include new offices for Eckler’s as well as storage space for the automotive supply company. The project includes 5,000 square-foot of office space and 175,000 square-foot of warehouse space.
