Fabbro Marine Group, manufacturer of the world-renowned Cape Horn offshore boats, has started construction on the new 78,000 square foot facility on 20 acres in Santa Rosa County. Cape Horn is the first company to build in a Florida First Sites certified site. Florida First Sites—launched by Gulf Power Company—offers project-ready industrial sites with the due diligence complete to minimize risk and accelerate speed to market. Fabbro Marine was also the recipient of an Industry Recruitment, Retention, and Expansion Fund grant through the University of West Florida.
Santa Rosa County’s local incentives made the difference for Cape Horn, allowing the company to keep jobs in the county and even expand by 33%.
