Land purchase finalized with Pietro Fiorentini USA

A manufacturing facility initially announced four years ago is closer to becoming a reality, with expectations of opening sometime in 2018. Area government and development officials announced Tuesday that Pietro Fiorentini USA has finalized an agreement to purchase 26.4 acres of land in the Three Springs Business Park.
