, which manufactures and distributes environmentally friendly cleaning products, plans to relocate to Sarasota County
in 2011 and bring jobs to the community. The manufacturer has been in business since 1975, and currently has offices in Largo
"We were drawn to Sarasota because of the incentives the county offers companies, the pro-business climate and environmentally conscious citizenry," President Duncan Yull says. "The relocation will allow us to upgrade our manufacturing and distribution facility, which will enable the company to expand its manufacturing capabilities, create new environmentally friendly products, and increase productivity and efficiency."
Resource One has plans to add 36 jobs over the next five years. Yull says the office in Sarasota will have 16 positions in 2011, with some of those positions being filled by current employees from Pinellas
, and the majority of them being filled by new hires.
Yull explains what he looks for in a potential employee. "Somebody who has a passion to take care of the customer and is environmentally conscious," Yull says. "We need employees who work hard to take care of the needs of our customers, and also feel that by providing environmentally conscious products and services; we are providing healthier work places, schools and healthcare facilities."
Resource One does not have a physical address in Sarasota yet, however, a future location is being scouted, and Yull plans to open the new office in March 2011.
