QPSI will be the final company to join the complex, completing the build out of NFI Park at Florence Crossings with four total tenants at the popular location.

“Florence provides an ideal location for our corporate headquarters,” said QPSI CEO Mike Ricketts. “NFI has made the process smooth as we look to our new innovation centre as a place to provide robust packaging solutions and create greater value for our customers.”

NFI President and Vice Chairman Jeff Brown commented, “NFI Park at Florence Crossings provides our tenants easy access to major highways in addition to a community supportive of economic growth.”

The strategic location of Florence places QPSI at a corridor to major highways with easy access to the New Jersey Turnpike, Route 295, Interstate 95, and the Pennsylvania Turnpike.

The architect for the QPSI project is KSS Architects and the general contractor is Arco Design/Build NE. CBRE was the real estate broker for both sides of the transaction and Taylor, Weismann & Taylor are the civil engineers. The project is expected to be completed April 2017.
