Stan Rogers, President of Legacy Pacific Group, was born in 1948 in Armstrong BC, the youngest of three children. In 1951, the Rogers family purchased a flourmill and its related activity which developed into A.J. Rogers Wholesome Foods. In 1971, fresh out of University, Stan joined the family business as President. Under Stan’s direction and leadership, sales grew from $40,000 per year in 1971 to $15 million per year in 1989. It was then in 1989 that Stan sold Rogers Foods to Nisshin Flour Milling of Japan.
After selling Rogers Foods, Stan and his family moved to the Langley/Abbotsford area where they ventured into the real estate development business. Their first project, Cedar Springs Country Estates was a 33 acre site with 159 executive town homes. Cedar Springs won 4 major Georgie Awards, including Environmental Awareness, Best Interior Decor, and Best Multi Family Development. They also developed Paradise Place a single family community. Together these two projects exceeded $40 million dollars of sale value.
In 1995, a vegetable processing plant located on South Sumas Road in Chilliwack became available for sale due to Pillsbury/Fraser Valley Foods closing down. These buildings comprised of over 160,000 sq. ft. of buildings and approximately 50 acres of vacant farm land. Stan Rogers saw a unique opportunity and developed a vision to renovate the buildings for "Large Box" industrial clients. This vision developed into Legacy Pacific Land Corporation. This was a very new concept for Chilliwack as no large industrial space was available in the area. There was such a high demand for industrial space, that within four months of purchasing the South Sumas processing plant in 1996 over half of the available 160,000 sq. ft. of space had been leased. Thus began Legacy Pacific Industrial Park.
Because of the demand for industrial space, in 1997, Legacy Pacific Land Corporation developed an additional 7,000 sq. ft. of useable space. By 1998, we had fully leased over 170,000 sq. ft. of big box industrial space in Chilliwack. In 1999, a warehouse was constructed which added an additional 51,000 sq. ft. of available space, and in 2003 we completed the construction and leasing of an additional 22,000 sq. ft. building.
2003 brought two more development opportunities for Legacy Pacific. On January 6, we purchased the Chilliwack Central Industrial Park, an 89,000 sq. ft. beverage manufacturing plant in Chilliwack. The building was renovated and we aggressively courted new tenants. We made improvements by building additional office space and doubling the number of dock loading doors. Then on January 13, 2003 we purchased a 43,000 sq. ft. facility out of receivership and created Rosedale Industrial Park. In 2005 We sold the Rosedale Industrial Park to Taplow Feeds on a lease to purchase basis.
In the fall of 2005, construction began on a 286,000 sq. ft. business park adjacent to our South Sumas facilities. Utilizing tilt-up construction two new industrial/commercial buildings were built. Nestle Waters moved a major distribution warehouse here with over 223,000 sq. ft. shortly after building completion. The Legacy Pacific Business Park is now over 95% leased.
Located off of Lickman Road, we are in the process of developing Progress Way Industrial Park by putting together a land assembly of 80+ acres. We are subdividing and entertaining offers for the sale of lots ranging in size from 1 to 35 acres. We are also offering build to suit options for sale or lease. We are enjoying a great relationship with some local investors who are helping to make this project a success.
In 2006, after years of meetings and discussions with international individuals & businesses, we began developing what will could soon be one of Canada’s largest food processing facility. This facility will be located at the Legacy Pacific Industrial Park in Chilliwack BC. Partnerships with selected food processors will enable us to meet customer needs flexibly and cost effectively. For Chilliwack, this food processing facility brings a whole new market for local agricultural products.
Legacy Pacific has experienced tremendous growth since our inception in 1996. We believe we have put together a group of professionals that are ready, willing, and able to help our customers, Tenants and Clients to fill their needs and continue our growth in the future.
