Ironside purchases historic commercial
property to expand operations


Ironside building mock up

Ironside, a Vero Beach-based marketing & print agency, has purchased the commercial building at 2001 20th Place, Vero Beach 32960 to better serve clients and expand staff resources.

The nearly 19,000 SF space, adjacent to the City of Vero Beach Police Department, previously served as a Wells Fargo location. Originally built in 1957 and later renovated in 1984, the building lends itself to Ironside’s growing needs.

“I am both pleased and grateful for the remarkable growth Ironside has experienced over the past few years,” said Bo Forbes, owner of Ironside. “We have been adding new staff members monthly to keep up with client demand, and while we love our current space, it was limiting our ability to expand.”

The new building offers an 8,000 SF atrium which will house Ironside’s robust print production division, while an additional 11,000 SF of office space will allow Ironside to continue to grow its professional service offerings, expand its video production studio and create a flex space for training or seminars.

Forbes worked with Vero Beach realtor Thomas “TP” Kennedy of Proctor-Kennedy Real Estate to find a space that would best meet Ironside’s needs.

“There are not many buildings in Vero Beach designed to meet Ironside’s needs of both office and production space,” said Kennedy. “When this building came on the market I knew Bo would be interested.”

A long-time staple to Historic Downtown Vero Beach, Ironside has served Vero Beach clients since 1989. Founded as a mom
& pop print shop, Ironside has grown to offer mailing services, graphic design, web design, digital marketing, videography, and
its latest offering, custom fully-managed marketing plans.

“It’s evident the businesses of Vero Beach appreciate having a marketing agency with a skillset and service offering that rivals agencies in larger cities, but with the local knowledge and exceptional service one expects in Vero Beach,” said Forbes.
