SALINAS, CALIFORNIA - Tanimura & Antle and the County of Monterey were recognized at The Monterey Bay Economic Partnership (MBEC) Second Annual Regional Economic Summit earlier today for working together to develop the innovative “Spreckels Crossing” farm employee housing community. Through a very timely cooperative approach, critically needed housing is being built in less than a year for accommodations of approximately 800 of Tanimura & Antle’s employees who would have otherwise had to struggle for housing options for seasonal work in the Salinas Valley.

“It is a true honor for Tanimura & Antle to be recognized by the MBEP at this Regional Economic Summit, and to be the first recipient of the public-partnership award alongside the County of Monterey,” says Rick Antle, CEO and

President of Tanimura & Antle. “Rarely does one have the opportunity to improve the community as this project has. Not only have we addressed the critical affordable housing need of our community, but we have also changed the lives of many people. Hopefully this project will be an inspiration for other to do as we have and keep the momentum going!”

Tanimura & Antle hopes that “Spreckels Crossing” will serve as an example to other large businesses in the Monterey County as housing for seasonal employees continues to be an issue. T&A employees have begun to move into the fully furnished apartments in early April with the final phase of the community buildings to be completed in

June. There will be a formal ribbon cutting ceremony and celebration later this summer.
