Owens Realty Services was recently featured in the Orlando Business Journal as President and CEO Robert Owens and his team celebrated with a ribbon cutting ceremony to open the company's new headquarters facility on June 11, 2013 in Orlando, FL.
“We’re thrilled that the City of Orlando is now home to our corporate headquarters,” said Bob Owens, President & CEO of Owens Realty Services. “To support the local community, we invested in a struggling property that sat vacant since its completion in 2007. The building, located in Orange County Enterprise Zone – EZ4801, is perfect for our company and is allowing us to take advantage of a variety of refunds and tax credits for acquiring equipment, investing in building materials and creating jobs.”
“This newly completed building will be a useful tool in revitalizing this area,” said Orlando Mayor Buddy Dyer. “Businesses that choose to locate and expand in an Enterprise Zone invest in our community and help spur further development and job opportunities.”
Rick Weddle, President & CEO of the Metro Orlando Economic Development Commission, said, “I’m proud that the City of Orlando and the rest of our region provide a wide array of tools to help companies grow and expand. We’re glad that Owens Realty Services relocated their headquarters to Orlando.”
