Polaris Inc., founded in 1954, is an American manufacture of motorcycles, snowmobiles, ATV, and neighborhood electric vehicles. Polaris was founded in Roseau, Minnesota, where it still has engineering and manufacturing. In 2015, Polaris announced it would be opening a new facility in Huntsville, Alabama. Their 920,000 SF manufacturing facility opened the spring of 2016 and employs 1,700 workers. The Huntsville facility produces the Ranger, RZR off-road vehicles and the Polaris Slingshot with processes including vehicle assembly, metal fabrication, welding, chassis and body painting, and injection molding.
As Polaris has continued to grow in Huntsville, they looked for additional space for warehousing, distribution, and manufacturing support services. The Hollingsworth Companies, having begun construction on a 404,000 SF industrial facility, was a good solution to quickly support this growth. This new facility located in SouthPoint Business Park, Huntsville, Alabama is tilt wall construction, with a 40’ clear height, 60’ x 60’ column spacing, and 50 dock doors.
The SouthPoint Industrial Park, Alabama is located adjacent to both the I-65 and 1-565. This location provides excellent access to markets from Nashville, TN and Louisville, KY to the north and Birmingham and Montgomery, AL to the south. This corridor is highly favored by companies that serve the Southern Automotive market.
The Hollingsworth Companies’ primary market is the development of single tenant, industrial facilities in tertiary markets. These include speculative complete facilities in our 4 business parks as well as build-to-suit projects throughout the Southeast.
Facility size ranges from 100,000 SF to 650,000 SF and include 30’-40’ clear height, 60 x 60 column spacing, ESFR fire protection, and LED lighting as standard features. With an inhouse architect and seasoned project managers, build-to-suit facilities are completed faster than industry average at very competitive pricing due to our consistently high volume of construction.
The Hollingsworth Companies holdings also include quality, renovated, industrial facilities and sale lease back facilities. The Hollingsworth Companies focuses on light manufacturing, distribution, and warehouse projects throughout the Southeastern United States. With over 125 tenants across 18 million square feet of industrial space, The Hollingsworth Companies is the largest developer of industrial space in tertiary markets in the Southeastern United States.
