Benco Dental supply sompany to utilize 124,000-square-foot, 13-acre site

JACKSONVILLE, FLORIDA, July 24, 2017 – Dallas-based Jackson-Shaw announces that national distribution company Benco Dental will occupy a new Class A industrial site at the Jacksonville International Tradeport Business Park (JITP). The 124,000-square-foot, single-tenant building situated on 13.49 acres is located at 13525 Internal Parkway in Jacksonville.
“From my perspective, Benco Dental based its real estate development decision on two factors: location, and the ease of working with Jackson-Shaw, who provided us a setting to perfectly match our needs,” said Lou Mangino, Vice President, Operations at Benco Dental. “After operating successfully in the Jacksonville area for 16 years, we envision a new facility that will accommodate growth, and continue to improve the business engines of our customers in the southeastern states for years to come.” 
The building, which is slated for a January 1, 2018 occupancy, is another successful development project by Jackson-Shaw.
Branch Banking & Trust Company was the construction-funding partner for this project, while Haskew Company, Inc. was the general contractor. Tyler Newman of Cushman and Wakefield of Florida, Inc. represented Jackson-Shaw, while Craig Jones and Ryan Hooker of Partners National, represented Benco Dental.
“Jackson Shaw really built the right product for our market. The 124,000 square-foot building is the sweet spot for users in NE Florida and it is no surprise that we got a lease signed before the building was completed,” said Tyler Newman. We are excited to accommodate the growing needs of Benco and allow them to stay in Jacksonville for many years to come.”
To date, Jackson-Shaw has developed 461,000 square feet of industrial product in Jacksonville International Tradeport. The company is currently completing the development of two buildings with investment partner, Thackeray Partners. Under construction concurrently, Building 4, a 54,000 square-foot facility, is also located at the northern edge of the JITP.
