NORTH VENICE — Drinkware manufacturer Tervis plans to put its factory and corporate headquarters up for sale in mid-June.
While the company will leave its facility at 201 Triple Diamond Blvd. in North Venice, it plans to stay in the area, according to a press release. The company is seeking two locations — one for a factory and one for a corporate headquarters. Both are expected to remain in Sarasota County.
“When Tervis went remote due to COVID-19, we learned some valuable lessons,” says Tervis President Rogan Donelly in the statement. “Our team members proved to be efficient and productive working from home. And more importantly, they were happy.”
The coronavirus-driven transition lead to the conclusion that the 12.5-acre campus with two buildings totaling 119,00 square feet no longer fit the company's needs, a release says.
The new headquarters will have a smaller footprint with offices for upper leadership, conference rooms and meeting spaces. Corporate office employees will be encouraged to work from home. The manufacturing facility will be streamlined.
“We have been part of the community since my grandfather relocated here in the 1950s,” says Donelly in a statement. “We are committed to being an active member while continuing to produce great products.”
Michele Fuller and Nick DeVito of Ian Black Real Estate are handling the listing of the property and relocations.
Tervis is a third-generation family-owned-and-operated business founded in 1946.
