What Businesses are Saying about Campbell Heights:
“Previously located in Port Kells, Nova Pole was looking to acquire a larger area of land for our facility that would accommodate heavy-duty manufacturing,” said Rajwinder Johal, Vice President and Production Manager, Nova Pole. “Since many of our employees already live in Surrey, it was also important we stay local to ensure accessibility for our staff, while continuing to tap into the skilled local workforce. Campbell Heights is a place where we can establish long-term roots, and we intend to stay here as our business continues to grow.”
“In 2016 we were looking for a high-quality facility with expansion potential and chose Campbell Heights, which was undergoing a rapid transformation of development at the time,” said Darren Footz, Founder of Nexe Innovations. “Fast forward, and 4 years later, this has proven to be a solid decision, as we are immediately adding 10,000 square feet, and looking at another 30,000 by the end of 2021.”
“As a certified 95 PFE (N95 Face mask equivalent) manufacturer, we were looking for a space we could move into fast, with the ability to quickly set up a certified clean room,” said Jeffrey Wang, Co-Founder of Eternity Medical. “With its state-of-the-art modern facilities, we chose Campbell Heights because there was no need for lengthy renovations. We were able to build out our specialized space and get up and running in less than 6 months after the pandemic hit.”
