After 15 years in its current location, Tervis is putting 12.5-acre, 119,000-square-foot North Venice factory and corporate headquarters up for sale. Tervis president Rogan Donelly says the decision comes in response to employees' ability to work remotely throughout the COVID-19 pandemic. The company is now seeking two new locations for its business operations: one for the factory and one for the corporate headquarters. Both are expected to remain in Sarasota County.
“When Tervis went remote due to COVID-19, we learned some valuable lessons,” Donelly said in a release. “Our team members proved to be efficient and productive working from home. And more importantly, they were happy.”
The new headquarters will have a smaller footprint with offices for upper leadership. There will be set ups for conference rooms, meeting spaces and plenty of flexibility. Corporate office employees will be encouraged to work from home. The manufacturing facility will be streamlined to continue to produce Tervis' signature drinkware that we have come to know and love.
“We have been part of the community since my grandfather relocated here in the 1950s,” Donelly added. “We are committed to being an active member while continuing to produce great products.”
The listing of the property and company relocations are being handled by Michele Fuller and Nick DeVito of Ian Black Real Estate.
