“It’s 70 and overcast everyday, regardless of what’s going on outside. We load our trucks… unload our trucks in perfect weather conditions. It’s truly a green environment. We’re probably using about 75 percent less electricity underground than we would in an above-ground facility. Whether it’s electronics or whether it’s food, you don’t have temperature and humidity fluctuations and so you don’t have any condensation, moisture building up in anything. From that standpoint, in my opinion you can’t beat it.”

As we expand our products and services, SubTropolis offers the flexibility to easily and cost-effectively grow right along with us – that’s not something we could do in a surface building.”

“When we toured SubTropolis, we immediately saw the opportunity it held for our company. The logistics alone are impressive, but the potential to grow our footprint within the underground and the access to high-speed connectivity helped us make our final decision to move here.”
