The project will create 28 new jobs, at an estimated average annual wage of $38,000, which will add over $100 million in payroll to the local economy. Based on anticipated job creation numbers and wage thresholds, the Indian River County Board of County Commissioners unanimously approved a Local Jobs Grant of up to $126,000, to be paid in installments after the jobs are in place.

Boston Barricade, which began operations in 1990, manufactures and services modular reusable construction enclosures specifically designed for retail stores at malls, shopping centers, airports, and city street locations. The company also provides graphic design, production, and installation services.

The Indian River County Chamber’s Economic Development Office, along with county officials and representatives from the Indian River State College Small Business Development Center, met with Boston Barricade representatives over the past 12 months to discuss plans and facilitate their location decision.

“With unanimous approval of Boston Barricade’s Local Jobs Grant application, we continue to see the commitment of our Board of County Commissioners to job creation in Indian River County,” said Helene Caseltine, director of economic development for the Indian River County Chamber.
