HAINES CITY, FL-This Central Florida city, with a permanent resident population of 13,000 and a surrounding 10-mile radius population of 200,000, has beaten Tampa and Orlando in attracting a high-tech Huntsville, AL company to its area, largely because it had a 10,000-sf plant ready and waiting.

The Haines City Economic Development Council confirms it found the structure at 2801 US 17-92 after Technology Research Consultants Inc. officials spread the word it was looking for a location along the high-tech corridor between Tampa and Orlando for a site to build $2 million worth of gyroscopes for the U.S. Army Communications and Electronics Command. The gyroscopes are for the navigation systems used in the UH-60 Blackhawk military helicopters.

January Dennison, president and founder of the five-year-old firm, couldn’t be reached at GlobeSt.com’s publication deadline to learn of her growth plans at the new site. But the Economic Development Council told Haines City business leaders at a luncheon that the company plans to begin operations May 15 with an initial staff of 25 and grow the workforce possibly to 60 in three years.

Technology Research Consultants will receive a $180,000 tax-incentive package from the Florida Qualified Target Industry program for opening its new plant.
