CSX Names John W. Kelsey Business, Technology Park 'Select Site'


JACKSONVILLE, Fla. – June 5, 2012 – CSX Corporation (CSX) today announces the selection of the John W. Kelsey Business and Technology Park in Greenville, Ill., as one of its first certified CSX Select Sites. 

CSX has introduced CSX Select Sites to offer customers an easy way to access certified, rail-ready properties for a variety of industrial uses.  “These sites represent many of the best manufacturing properties along CSX’s rail network in the eastern U.S.,” explained Clark Robertson, CSX Assistant Vice President – Regional Development. “The Select Site designation promotes shorter decision timelines, increased speed to market, and lower up-front development risk for companies seeking industrial property for their manufacturing operations. Designated CSX Select Sites will also benefit from increased marketing exposure, press releases and promotional materials, and direct marketing to site selection professionals.” 

“All of the data suggest manufacturers prefer certainty in their selection of new plant locations,” said Robertson.  “We intend to assist communities across our rail network to identify sites that can provide certainty and compete effectively for these new investments and jobs.”

To receive CSX Select Site designation, the sites must meet a rigorous list of key criteria, including infrastructure and utility availability, environmental reviews, appropriate zoning and entitlement, air quality permitting, rail serviceability, proximity to highways or interstates and other attributes.  CSX has partnered with The Austin Company, a nationally known site selection and certification consulting firm, to screen candidate sites and assist communities with the application and certification process.

“Straight and to the point – there is no better way to describe the CSX Select Site program,” said Jonathan Gemmen, Location Consultant, with The Austin Company Austin Company.  “The program certifies rail ready/development ready properties of various sizes and features them on a website that is refreshing in its simplicity and a competitive leader in delivering information. CSX Select Site program and website stand above the rest.”

In its first round of certification, CSX has selected five sites.  Two are located in Ohio and one each in Illinois, Kentucky and South Carolina.
