Jordan Skellie of Lee & Associates Greenville-Spartanburg represented Germany-based MEVA in the selection and purchase of a six-acre property located near the intersection of Interstates 85 and 26. The company’s 55,915-square-foot facility will house 20-25 employees, including an engineering staff and product development personnel.
MEVA provides contractors with a range of German-made modular formwork and shoring products used in pouring structural concrete for industrial, civil and commercial structures, as well as large mixed-use and multi-family projects.
The company chose the Spartanburg site for quick access to major commercial construction projects in the Carolinas and metro Atlanta, according to a news release.
According to Scott Fisk, president of MEVA Formwork Systems, locating and finalizing the purchase of the property required persistence from the Lee & Associates team.
“This market is exploding as companies see the Upstate’s proximity, quality of life and affordability,” he said in the news release. “We were fortunate to have Jordan’s depth of knowledge and sense of urgency.”
Skellie, a senior associate/principal at Lee & Associates, said the Spartanburg area has become a focal point for companies looking for industrial and distribution property.
“Given the dynamics of the market, we had to move quickly to secure a property that met MEVA’s requirements,” he said in the release. “It’s been rewarding helping Scott find the perfect location to leverage the company’s technologies throughout the Southeast.”
