Based in Winslow, Arizona, the business facility is in an ideal location because of its proximity to interstate and rail transportation with convenient and cost effective distribution and for its proximity to the Coconino, Kaibab and Apache-Sitgreaves National Forests, assuring supply and access to raw materials.
The property is less than one mile south of Interstate 40 and just north of the Burlington Northern Santa Fe Railroad Winslow yard. It has excellent visibility and accessibility from Old Highway 66. It is located 58 miles from Flagstaff, Arizona, which is surrounded by the largest contiguous Ponderosa pine forest in the world.
The facility has a higher capacity for cutting and packaging firewood than it is currently using, allowing potential for an expanded geographic market. The location along the interstate and railroad lines makes further distribution possibilities economically sound.
Winslow has been designated an Enterprise Zone by the state of Arizona, which gives a boost to business profitability by allowing for certain income tax credits and property tax benefits.
High Desert Forest Products operates in a ±60,500-square-foot building on 16 acres of land. The concrete block building is designed for office, warehouse and industrial use. The size and acreage is large enough to support a wide variety of possible industrial users, additional businesses or expansion of current use. It was built in 1971 and used as a soda bottling plant—another one of many possibilities for this versatile and well-equipped facility. Additionally, the 16-acre site allows for expansion of the building or the sale of the excess property to further increase return on this investment.
