Scotlynn USA Division, Inc., a multinational transportation and logistics firm specializing in truckload transportation and the distribution of perishable products, is launching its new North American corporate headquarters at 9597 Gulf Research Lane, in Fort Myers. Seagate Development Group is constructing and developing the three-story, 60,000-square-foot building and is slated to break ground this month.
“Scotlynn manages thousands of shipments across North America each week that provide essential food and supplies for millions of people,” said Ryan D. Carter, executive vice president of Scotlynn Transport, LLC and Scotlynn USA Division, Inc.
The new facility will be home to more than 350 management and operations staff with at least 140 new hires during the next three years.
Seagate will incorporate contemporary interior design elements that have an industrial feel, reflecting Scotlynn’s core business. An example includes corrugated metal wall panels that mimic containers hauled by tractor trailers, as Scotlynn transports perishable and temperature-sensitive commodities that require special equipment and expertise.
“We are pleased to have been chosen to lead this exciting project and to work with the exceptional team at Scotlynn. We are also just as proud that our local knowledge brought us here,” said Matt Price, Seagate CEO and partner.
Scotlynn USA Division, Inc. has offices in Tampa and Indianapolis. Its new space will come equipped with a gym, basketball court, cafeteria, walking track and an indoor/outdoor recreational space featuring an eating area. It is expected to be completed and open for business by 2021.
