Genesis Seeking Ind. Property for Expansion
A company that has been supplying the recreational vehicle industry with wood products since 2002 wants to expand with a new warehouse and distribution center on the former Western Rubber property south of downtown Goshen, Ind..
Genesis Products Inc. has offered to buy two parcels of land from the Goshen Redevelopment Commission for $137,500 with plans to invest at least $2 million over the next two years for site improvements and construction on the property that is bordered to the west by railroad tracks between Douglas and Jackson streets.
The city has begun negotiations with the company, but the redevelopment commission decided Tuesday evening, June 10, to postpone a vote to sell the property, allowing board members more time to review the proposal. Genesis wants to start construction in early July.
Genesis has five facilities with space for production, assembly and warehousing in Elkhart, Goshen and Keysville, Va.
If approved, the redevelopment of the property would include two phases. The first step would be the construction of a 60,000-square-foot building on the northern parcel with parking on the southern parcel. Within five years, the company plans to expand the size of its building to cover 120,000 square feet.
