Gear Spinners Announces New Lutz Location

SMARTStart member experiences rapid growth in Pasco County
Lutz, Fla. (March 29, 2016) — Only a year-and-a-half after joining the SMARTstart Pasco Business Incubator as an on-site member, Thomas Giella, owner of Gear Spinners, announced he is transitioning to an off-site, commercial location on Wesley Chapel Boulevard in Lutz, Florida. The new location, one mile north of the new Tampa Premium Outlets, accommodates Gear Spinners’ five employees and provides a central location from which to service their diverse customer base.
When he joined SMARTstart in September 2014, Giella was the sole employee of the new company, which offered affordable website design aimed at the small- and mid-sized business market. “I had a difficult time starting up my business,” Giella told a group at Leadership Pasco last week. “But, I took advantage of all the support and educational programs of SMARTstart, such as CO.STARTERS and even participated in the SMARTstart Challenge in February 2015, coming in third place. Having access to a program like this helped me grow my business and even begin hiring.” Giella will continue as an off-site member of the SMARTstart program, and his plans include future expansions into Land O’Lakes and New Port Richey as well as building on the company’s presence in Dade City and Lutz.
Gear Spinners also added two new divisions to the company recently. Complete I.T. offers computer repair and network infrastructure. The new Lutz location gives clients an easy location to drop off equipment, where repairs can be performed in house and, in some cases, completed by the following day. A second division, Tampa Bay Installs, offers audio/visual installation for residential and commercial projects including wireless speakers, projectors, WiFi systems, TV mounting, VoIP phone systems, CCTV camera systems, and more.
“It’s great to see what our local business owners can achieve when we provide the right environment to stimulate their growth,” said Pasco County Commissioner Mike Moore. “As more entrepreneurs move through the SMARTstart program, we can expect to see more small businesses move into commercially-available space and provide jobs for Pasco County residents.”
Gear Spinners is located at 25344 Wesley Chapel Blvd., Suite 104, Lutz, FL 33559. For more information about Gear Spinners, visit www.completeit.io or call 813-235-0554.
