Mark Kerr-Jarrett, owner of the Barnett Tech Park in Montego Bay, signed a contract with Steve Milner from Kier Construction Wednesday, to develop 50,000 square feet of production space at the park.

The value of the contract was not discosed.

The idea of creating the tech park has been 20 years in the making, from 1994 “when we were building the MoBay South master plan”, Kerr-Jarrett told The Financial Gleaner at the signing in Kingston.

He earlier had an emotional moment when speaking at the signing and thanking his wife, Paula Kerr-Jarrett.
