MassDevelopment has issued a $3,680,000 tax-exempt bond on behalf of Great Pond Land Partnership LLC, an affiliate of Cox Engineering Company, a Randolph company that offers a full line of HVAC products and services. Cox Engineering, which built its current manufacturing facility in 2017 using a $6.3 million tax-exempt bond from MassDevelopment, will use proceeds from this bond to build another 37,500-square-foot manufacturing facility at the same location to increase its production capabilities. Rockland Trust Company purchased the bond.

“We’re pleased to be a resource for manufacturers like Cox Engineering Company looking to grow their operations here in Massachusetts,” said MassDevelopment President and CEO Lauren Liss. “This expansion will enable Cox Engineering to increase its output and create jobs in greater Boston.”
