New supply company arrives; still room for growth

Industrial absorption continues to be a big story in Fairfield as new distributors, wholesalers and manufacturers take advantage of available (although dwindling) space and our location on major transportation corridors near the Bay Area and Sacramento markets.

The latest coup: S&S Supplies and Solutions relocating its corporate headquarters to Fairfield in the Busch Corporate Center.

S&S, founded in 1983 in Santa Clara, is a certified minority- and woman-owned national supply chain specialist with integrated supply and asset management capabilities. S&S is a national distributor of tools, welding supplies, industrial hoses, janitorial sanitation supplies and mill and warehouse supplies. One of their major focuses is on technical safety equipment, tools, supplies and services.

Services offered by S&S include equipment and tool rentals, warranty repairs and mobile repairs, certification, calibration, on-site technical support and training, vendor stores, material management, vending solutions, kitting, hoisting and rigging certifications and contract and temporary labor. They have a full-service personal equipment testing facility as well as a fabrication shop for utility grounds, shunts, jumpers, hot sticks and high-voltage tools. They also have a full service Garment Division, providing FR and Nomex uniforms with full embroidery and alteration services.

Major corporate partners include Tesoro, Shell, Chevron, Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory and POSCO Steel.

“We are currently in the process of finishing up our new corporate headquarters at 2700 Maxwell Way,” said S&S owner Tracy Tomkovics. “Our new Fairfield facility consolidates the corporate headquarters from Martinez as well as distribution and service centers. Our contractors are completing the tenant improvements now, and we expect our grand opening to happen in mid- to late June.”

S&S will employ approximately 100 people at the Fairfield headquarters, with the potential for further expansion.

S&S is one of several companies that have recently relocated or expanded in the Fairfield industrial marketplace. A savvy reader might ask where future industrial growth will be located in Fairfield.

There are several areas suitable for industrial development in the city. One of our original industrial parks, Cordelia Industrial Park located between Lopes Road and Red Top Road, still has available more than 95 acres in a variety of parcel sizes, with most in the 2- to 5-acre range. There is one larger 31-acre site available next to Rodriguez High School. These sites would be suitable for flexible industrial buildings, service commercial users, distribution centers and light manufacturers.

This is a basic industrial park with limited amenities and landscaping, but it offers excellent freeway access and proximity to Napa County and the Bay Area.

Solano Business Park and Busch Corporate Center are landscaped, high-quality business parks with almost 150 acres remaining for office, industrial and distribution uses. Parcel sizes range up to 23 acres in Solano Business Park. Located within Busch Corporate Center is one of the city’s larger industrial properties: the JCM-I 80/Gateway property abutting Cordelia Road. At more than 52 acres, this site would be ideal for a larger distribution center or manufacturer looking to tap into regional markets.

In northeastern Fairfield, the city’s traditional “heavy industrial” area, Tolenas Industrial Park has only one 12-acre site and three small parcels available. Across Huntington Drive, the Tolenas area still has vacant 30 acres zoned for lighter industrial uses.

Over the longer term, the city is planning for industrial and service commercial development northeast of the planned Fairfield-Vacaville Train Station. The Train Station Specific Plan sets aside up to 286 acres in Planning Area 6 with rail-served sites suitable for future industrial and heavy service commercial development.

Industrial leasing and new development will continue to be major economic growth generators in Fairfield. A new manufacturing job can generate additional service and retail jobs in the community as well as provide new residents for the local housing market. Economic Notes would like to welcome S&S to the Fairfield community.
