Engineering company to add 25 jobs at expanded Pasco location

LUTZ – Engineering firm UC Synergetic is adding 25 jobs and moving its central Pasco operations to a new 19,000-square-foot office location in the ComPark 75 complex south of Wesley Chapel Boulevard.

UC Synergetic, headquartered in Fort Mill, S.C., has 1,600 employees in 40 states. The company specializes in engineering and project management services for the electric and communications utility industries. UC Synergetic is a subsidiary of Pike Corporation, one of the largest providers of outsourced construction, repair and engineering services to utilities in the U.S, according to the Pasco Economic Development Council.

The company currently employees 80 in the Offices of Devenwood complex on State Road 54 about nine miles from its new location near Interstate 75 in Lutz.

"Companies are recognizing Pasco's major north-south commuter arteries and that's crucial in recruiting and retaining a skilled workforce," Bill Cronin, president/CEO of the PEDC, said in a released statement. "Success stories like UC Synergetic's experience in Pasco help us tell the story to others looking to move their companies here.''

PAST COVERAGE: Companies seek to grow industrial space.

The company is moving to a 57,000-square-foot spec building at the ComPark 75 campus owned by auto dealer Larry Morgan. The building now has two tenants and room for two more in the remaining 25,800 square feet.

"UC Synergetic moving there is probably indicative of not enough office space'' in Pasco, said ComPark 75's leasing agent, Heidi Tuttle-Beisner of Commercial Asset Partners Realty. "They are taking flex a building and making it 100 percent office. Whether a need to relocate or to come to the market, there's not a lot of product available.''
