City of Fairfield Development Update

Fairfield is humming with new business and development activity.

Calbee America is moving its manufacturing operations from Sebastopol to a 40,000-square foot manufacturing facility in Solano Business Park. Calbee expects construction of this new facility to be completed in October 2006. Plans are also underway for the company to move its headquarters from Torrance.

Part of Fairfield’s appeal is its plentiful, high quality water. The city’s water quality and supply to support its build-out has drawn other companies like NRE World Bento and Columbus Salame to Fairfield.

Also, West-Com Nurse Call Systems, a healthcare company, moved to Fairfield from Danville into a 13,594 square feet building in Solano Commerce Center. “Fairfield, with its diverse and qualified workforce, has the right set of demographics for us to grow together,” said C. Larry Peters, West-Com’s CEO. He added, “We looked at sites throughout the East Bay and decided Fairfield is the place to be for what we need to accomplish, and provides easy access for moving our service trucks around the Bay Area,” he said. “City staff have been extremely responsive to our needs, and we look forward to growing our business here.”

Other Fairfield Development Activity: Solano Commerce Center, by Panattoni Development Company, includes 10 new light industrial, R&D and distribution buildings totaling 365,000 square feet; Hillside Terrace Shopping Center includes Long’s Drugs and El Pollo Loco; Green Valley Executive Center is a 46,000 square foot Class A Office building next to the site of the new Fairfield Cordelia Library; Saint Gobain is currently constructing a 1,020,000-square foot wine bottle storage and distribution facility; Lincoln Fairfield Center is a 191,430-square foot Spec Industrial building; Fairfield Ford is building a new auto dealership; Venture Corp is constructing a 66,568-square foot industrial and office condo project; and Comfort Suites hotel is currently under construction.
