Engineers must figure out how to get things to work. But if those things are not also pleasing to the eye or compelling to the soul, few will buy them. There are too many other options. Mastery of design, empathy, play and other seemingly ‘soft’ aptitudes is now the main way for individuals and firms to stand out in a crowded marketplace. Daniel Pink, A Whole New Mind.
Your Business is Welcome Here!
A machine shop. A guitar maker. A set designer. A roofer. What do they all have in common? They all have found a home for their businesses here at the Garnerville Arts and Industrial Center. Our buildings have been adapted for many industrial, warehouse and studio uses over the years. In past years, the complex housed textile manufacturers exclusively. Today, nearly all of our spaces have been reconfigured for other types of businesses, including currently a karate supply distributor, woodworkers and cabinetmakers, warehouses for household goods and accessories, stage scenery makers and various types of contractors. Our tenants have such diverse yet complementary businesses that one tenant may be another’s supplier or customer. Most of our tenants consider themselves to be members of a special community of like-minded entrepreneurs who appreciate the historic surroundings and the opportunity to interact and network with one another.
Warehouse and Workshop Features
Industrial and warehouse spaces may range in size from 900 square feet to 30,000 square feet, some with finished offices. Loading docks, overhead doors and high ceilings are available, and all of the spaces are fully sprinklered. Freight elevators service second floor units. Spaces have gas-fired heating units and may include single and/or 3 phase electric power. Check out our Rental Opportunities!
Access is 24 hours, 7 days per week, and the complex is gated and patrolled 24/7. On-site maintenance staff ensures a helping hand is there when you need it!
