At the entrance of Eagles Landing Business Park, dirt is moving on the construction of its newest tenant.

Crews are excavating land for the new Omega Research Inc. facility. It will be the third company to build at the business park, joining Cardinal Paint and Industrial Diesel.

A ceremonial groundbreaking for Omega Research is slated Wednesday at the site on Thom Lambert Boulevard, starting with lunch at 12:30 p.m.

Omega Research entered a performance agreement with the Decatur Economic Development Corp in September to facilitate its move to Decatur. Under the agreement, Omega will invest a minimum of $7 million in real and personal property by Dec. 31, 2022, including a minimum of 43,000 square feet in laboratory and warehouse space. The aerospace company has also committed to creating within five years a minimum of 13 full-time jobs with a minimum average salary of $75,000 per job. 

In exchange for Omega’s investment, the EDC is giving the company 5 acres in the business park and first refusal on an adjacent 5 acres for a future project.
