DENVER-Great Western Development Co. says Hexcel Corp. has signed a build-to-suit agreement for a manufacturing facility at its Great Western Industrial Park north of the city in Windsor, CO. Hexcel, a major carbon fiber manufacturer based in Connecticut, is a supplier to Denmark-based Vestas Wind Systems, which has a turbine-blade factory at the park. Hexcel revealed plans for the plant in July but had not yet secured a location.

Hexcel reportedly signed a long-term lease for a 100,000-square-foot high-cube tilt-up industrial building that will include manufacturing, warehouse and office space. The lease reportedly includes expansion rights. Great Western Development executive Rich Montgomery declined to comment on the details but did say construction has begun and the company is expected to be operational at the new location in late 2009.

Great Western Development, a division of the Denver-based Broe Group, is charged with developing 1,400 acres surrounding the Great Western Railway, which connects to both the Union Pacific and Burlington Northern railway systems and is owned by OmniTrax, another Broe Group affiliate. Other companies in the park include Eastman Kodak, Owen-Illinois, which is the largest manufacturer of glass containers in the world, and Front Range Energy, a state-of-the art ethanol plant.
