QUINCY - A groundbreaking ceremony to build the facility that will house a PVC joint manufacturer is happening the Port of Quincy’s industrial park on Wednesday at 10:00 a.m. The facility will house Tacoma-based Raceway. Raceway Technology produces a variety of PVC electrical conduits for use in power, telephone, and other electrical duct systems. The Port of Quincy-owned building will be leased to Raceway. The arrival of the company is expected to create as many as 100 jobs.
“It’s a big deal because it’s another diversified industry coming to town,” said Port of Quincy commissioner Curt Morris.
The Port of Quincy is spending $2.5 million on construction of a roughly 16,000-square-foot building that will house Tacoma-based Raceway Technology Inc. The port will own the building but will lease it to Raceway for 20 years.
This will be the company's second location and it will be built in the port's industrial park 4 near the Yahoo server farm on Port Industrial Parkway.
Construction of the building is expected to wrap up by summer of 2019. Raceway Technology is forecasted to be fully operational in its Quincy location by the end of 2019.
