Quonset’s greatest strength has always been the variety of facilities and world-class infrastructure available to our companies. Quonset’s state-of-the-art Flex Industrial Campus gives new and expanding companies room to grow in an affordable, move-in ready space adaptable to the needs of their business. These are equipped with office spaces, restroom facilities, and high bay space for manufacturing, assembly or warehouse use, with ceilings up to 24 feet.

Quonset’s location places companies at the heart of major shipping and travel routes. The onsite Port of Davisville provides public access to a world-class port facility. Quonset also affords access to the Northeast rail corridor and 14 miles of freight rail lines in the Park as well as both RI Rte. 4 and I-95 highways. With additional proximity to three airports – T.F. Green (RI), Logan International (MA), and Bradley International (CT) and nearby train routes like the MBTA and Amtrak, businesses and employees alike have the options they need to access new markets.

Access to the Port of Davisville has made Quonset a magnet for clean energy development. The park has hosted the construction of some of the nation’s most ambitious wind energy projects, including the nation’s first offshore wind farm off the coast of Block Island. Quonset Business Park looks forward to serving as a hub for this growing industry in the near future. The QDC’s offices also run 100% on clean energy generated by solar power.

QDC is pleased to be working alongside the Rhode Island Public Transit Authority to provide a free bus service for employees at Quonset Business Park. The Quonset Express takes workers daily from Kennedy Plaza in Providence to multiple locations across the Business Park, including Infinity Meat Solutions, Ocean State Job Lot and Electric Boat (all of which are currently hiring). The Quonset Express takes cars off the road and makes the business park more accessible for employees while reducing Rhode Island’s carbon footprint.
