COLUMBIA CITY, Ind. (August 2, 2010) – Columbia City Mayor Jim Fleck, Peak Performance Orthopedic & Sports Physical Therapy (Peak Performance) owner Sean White and other community leaders gathered today for a groundbreaking ceremony at the company’s new Columbia City location.
“This building project is something I have looked forward to for a number of years,” said Peak Performance owner Sean White, “I am excited about the opportunity to work with Columbia City and the Whitley County EDC to grow Peak Performance at this new location.”
The new building will allow the company to expand its physical therapy practice and offer additional wellness and fitness programs within the community. The 6,000 SF, two-story facility will also include leasable office space for other medical related businesses, which may attract new medical practices to Columbia City.
“I am pleased to see Peak Performance investing and creating jobs in our community,” said Columbia City Mayor Jim Fleck, “It’s a great day when we join a local entrepreneur like Sean White to celebrate the expansion of his business.”
Peak Performance now has five fulltime employees (including four fulltime therapists) at its Columbia City location and plans to add two additional employees at the new facility. Peak Performance also has a Warsaw office. Earlier this summer, the Columbia City Common Council approved ten-year tax abatement to phase-in new property taxes associated with the project.
Project partners include architect Mike Christoffersen, builder Mike Todoran, First Source Bank, and the Community Development Corporation of Northeast Indiana.
