Greater Hazleton’s Humboldt Industrial Park ready to serve companies with manufacturing-quality utilities, available land
Finding optimum industrial real estate space with available pad-ready sites and multiple existing utilities designed to help companies perform at a high level to meet manufacturing industry specifications are consistent top-of-mind priorities for site selection brokers. The Humboldt Industrial Park near Hazleton, Pennsylvania offers both of these benefits to food processing manufacturing companies.
The 3,000-acre park, which sits right off Interstate 81 at Exit 143, is home to nearly 60 industries with almost 10,000 employees. The park provides numerous infrastructure benefits for tenants, including utilities that stretch to existing curbs. Humboldt’s impressive array of utilities includes access to quality electrical, natural gas, water, and sewer connections. Industries benefit by having access to natural gas via an 8-inch medium-pressure, distribution main, as well as a virtually unlimited power supply transmitted at 12kV, 69kV and 230kV from three existing electrical substations servicing the park.
CAN DO, Inc. is a Public Utility Commission (PUC) regulated utility and owns and operates the water system throughout Humboldt Industrial Park. The infrastructures of the system were designed to support various types of industries with large water capacity demands, specifically those of food processing companies. CAN DO supplies water throughout Humboldt at pressures and flow rates that are designed for heavy industrial use. The water runs through 12- and 16-inch ductile iron mains, which provide strength and a long lifecycle. CAN DO also has an interconnection with the Hazleton City Authority, who can provide additional water capacity for the largest users, as a supplement to CAN DO’s system.
Additionally, CAN DO owns and operates the wastewater treatment system throughout Humboldt Industrial Park, which can process up to 1 million gallons per day. Wastewater service is provided through 12-inch gravity collection lines, as well as ten-inch laterals, that allow industries easy access to the system. CAN DO also partners with the Greater Hazleton Joint Sewer Authority to provide additional capacity to larger industrial users for select sites in Humboldt.
In addition to its impressive array of high-quality utilities, the Humboldt Industrial Park has proven to be an attractive location for companies in the food processing industry because of its selection of fully permitted sites. The Humboldt East section of the park currently has three sites at various stages of the entitlement process that can accommodate buildings ranging from 125,000 square feet to 470,000 square feet.
