The Burlington Northern-Santa Fe Railroad has designated Greenville’s Kelsey Business and Technology Park one of six sites in the country in its new Site Certification Program.

A few years ago, Greenville’s Wolf Business Park was included in a similar program by CSX. The two industrial parks are adjacent to each other on the east edge of Greenville. Greenville Economic Development Coordinator Bill Walker said the city is extremely pleased with the BNSF designation. He said it allows companies who may be in the market for a new location to know that Greenville is ready to go. He said the work on the project has been extensive.

Walker added that Greenville is the only location in the nation with both BNSF and CSX certifications.
