Ajinomoto Windsor, Ontario, Calif., acquired Circle Foods’ 165,763-square-foot built-to-suit business park located in San Diego, Calif.
Tyson Foods, Inc., Springdale, Ark., acquired Circle Foods in 2013, assuming the long-term lease. Simultaneously, Ajinomoto Windsor acquired Circle Foods from Tyson along with Building 16, in which Ajinomoto Windsor will expand food processing operations in the facility.
Building 16 is said to be one of the most sophisticated food manufacturing facility in San Diego. The 32-foot clear height, state-of-the-art building includes 8,000 amps of power, ESFR sprinklers, a 4-inch water meter, 5 psi gas service and a walking ceiling over manufacturing operations. Ajinomoto Windsor acquired the facility for $26.5 million.
