Industrial – newest building on market has great logistics

6901 Urbana Rd. – Industrial 
Springfield, OH
Available as of 7/16/2009

I had the chance to tour this building last week with real estate agent Doug Cox and one of the owners Jim Valentine.  I was impressed with the quality of the building and the investment that the owners had made into it.  It is a great space, and the owners are eager to find a tenant.

Logistics are a strong asset

Interstate highway and trucking—two great advantages of the site.  First, the site is well positioned, less than 1 mile from  4-laned, limited access US 68, which feeds directly into I-70.  The Interstate-like US 68 going south to I-70 was constructed to assist Navistar get its trucks to market with the best possible logistics.  Second, on the site a few yards away is a trucking company, Imperial Express, who can provide a competitive advantage for companies that are looking for the kind of services it provides.

Valco and Woeber Mustard occupied the building

The building, built in 1986, has housed Valco Truck & Trim and most recently Woeber Mustard, which used the facility as distribution space until their new facility a little ways down from this property.  Valco Industries, a full-service metal fabricator, operated on this site under the same address in an adjacent building until 2007, when a fire destroyed it.   Valco then relocated their facilities to 625 Burt Street, in Springfield.
