Target Industries

If you’re searching for more than just a place to live and work; if you’re on a quest to find a community where you can establish roots and leave a legacy for generations to follow, then look no further.

Lake Wales  is a vibrant Central Florida community, one capitalizing on opportunities from existing and emerging industries in its region. It is seizing opportunities for long-term and short-term growth in a wide variety of industries. While its interests are broad, community leaders initially are targeting six sectors of the market for its development efforts: Agribusiness, Tourism, Logistics and Distribution, Light Manufacturing. Medical and Life Sciences and Retail

CSX Corp. is nearing completion of its Winter Haven Terminal Facility, just eight miles west of the SR 60 and US 27 crossroads in Lake Wales. The first part of the project includes an Integrated Logistics Center. The leading supplier of rail-based freight transportation chose this location because of rail frontage on the CSX mainline, its central location to Florida freight markets, State Road 60 access, and public and private partnerships — to name just a few reasons.

Community leaders are looking for partners who can help build positive momentum and professionals who can provide proactive, progressive leadership.
