BELLE GLADE — FINFROCK, the only vertically integrated design-builder and manufacturing company of its kind in the industry, received the Economic Impact of the Year Award of Excellence from NAIOP South Florida for its new manufacturing facility in Belle Glade. The awards recognize companies and individuals that have demonstrated exemplary efforts, and the winners are selected by peers in the commercial real estate industry.

The Apopka-based company has expanded into Palm Beach County with a 140,000-sq.-ft.+ precast concrete manufacturing facility and administrative offices on approximately 94 acres in Belle Glade and has become a significant regional employer. The facility is built on the site of the former Glades Correctional Institution.

“This was a great win for FINFROCK, and we certainly appreciate the acknowledgement by our peers for this transformational project,” said CEO Allen Finfrock. “We are grateful to the local employees who have built our facility, but this is only the beginning. We have made a significant investment here and will add employees as we continue to build new structured parking, multifamily and mixed-use projects across South Florida.”

The facility in Belle Glade is expected to have a $242 million economic impact on the region and brings new efficient and cost-effective precast/prestressed concrete design, manufacturing and construction solutions for commercial developers in Palm Beach, Dade, Broward and Southwest Florida counties.

The site was originally purchased in March 2021, during the height of the pandemic. FINFROCK worked fastidiously, despite unexpected delays, to complete the lengthy process of clearing and demucking the land before it was suitable to begin construction. FINFROCK applied the company’s innovative and efficient design-build methods to reduce construction time and costs as much as possible, and local workers from Belle Glade and the surrounding region successfully helped build the manufacturing facility, which is now operational and pouring pieces for high-profile construction projects in South Florida.

FINFROCK has integrated with the local community, partnering with local high schools and technical schools such as West Technical Education Center, Palm Beach State College and CareerSource Palm Beach County to provide training and long-term career options. As a result, many regional workers launched their careers at FINFROCK, a family-owned company that is committed to employee retention and advancement.

“We are looking forward to this next phase of evolution for our company and with this new facility now nearly fully operational, we can offer South Florida a better, more sustainable and lower cost product,” Finfrock added.

Among FINFROCK’s clients are many of Florida’s top universities, hotels and hospital systems. The company has designed and built more than 300 garages throughout South and Central Florida and has won countless awards for its innovative DualDeck Building System – a unique brand of offsite construction to complete projects faster than with traditional methods.

FINFROCK is a private, independently owned company that utilizes proprietary technology to design and build structured parking, hotels, student housing, office buildings, multi-unit residential complexes, and mixed-use facilities. FINFROCK’s in-house architects, engineers, precast designers, cost estimators, quality control personnel, and construction managers specialize in design, manufacturing, and construction and allow FINFROCK to serve as a single point of contact for our customers. Lowering both cost and risk for owners, FINFROCK is the only vertically integrated design-builder of its kind in the industry. Founded in 1945 and headquartered on a 93-acre complex in Apopka, Florida, FINFROCK has been serving customers in Florida and select locations nationally for over 76 years. FINFROCK is also the recipient of multiple awards for innovation and design excellence. Visit their website to learn more:
