P&G subsidiary iMFLUX grows into Hamilton Facilty

Hamilton, OhioProcter & Gambles’s new injection molding subsidiary. iMFLUX recently began production at their new facility in Hamilton, Ohio.  iMFLUX  Inc was formed recently to commercially develop and market “break-through” injection molding technology based on patents held by the parent company.  Sources report that iMFLUX plans to invest $50MM in machinery and equipment that could translate into huge savings for P&G’s worldwide operations.  The company plans to initially create 200 jobs with the possibility of an additional 200 jobs within 3 years.

IMFLUX selected as its new headquarters the former 317,000 sf Hamilton Fixture Company building which was constructed by Kiesland in 1996.  For the iMFLUX requirement, Kiesland collaborated with Messer Industrial Builders to provide  process build-out and improvements to building infrastructure.

Kiesland is pleased to have been part of this project and welcomes iMFLUX to the Kiesland Business Park!

New Steel Center at Dayton Airport

New Steel Center at Airport Site

Vandalia, Ohio – Dallas-based SB SPECIALTY METALS LLC is now the first tenant at Air Commerce Center, the former UPS sort facility being developed near the Dayton International Airport. The 164,000 square foot regional hub steel service center was recently completed by Kiesland Development Services.

SB Specialty Metals serves a variety of manufacturing customers in a wide range of industries including automotive, aerospace, energy and heavy equipment. The new centralized facility will supply all of the company’s service centers which in turn, ship steel to customers. The former air freight hub was an attractive logistics opportunity for SB, given its central location near I-75 and I-70, flexible building design and low cost to occupy.

Project developer, Air Commerce, LLC – a subsidiary of INDUSTRIAL REALTY GROUP (IRG) acquired the 950,000 sf air freight hub facility last year, which had been vacant since 2005. Los Angeles-based IRG has specialized in redeveloping large industrial facilities on a national basis. With a portfolio of 35MM square feet in Ohio alone IRG is a market leader in this unique segment of the real estate industry. Other local industrial IRG developments include the former GM Moraine Assembly Plant, Ford Batavia Transmission Plant, former Delco Facilities in Dayton and the former Dayton Tire and Rubber Company, also in Dayton.

Kiesland was hired in September 2012 to provide design/build services for the project on a fast-track basis. The new facility includes expanded loading dock facilities, heavy cranes, power distribution as well as 9,000 square feet of office. Kiesland worked closely with Cleveland, Ohio based Construction Resources One, Ohio Realty Advisors and Cincinnati based KBA Architects to complete the project.

Presto Foods

Presto Finds Recipe for Expansion

Monroe, Ohio – Earlier this year, Presto Foods a leading midwest restaurant wholesaler of pizza, Italian and deli foods was quickly running out of space in their Monroe, Ohio headquarters. Presto needed to add office space and conferencing facilities to better serve their customers in southwest Ohio. The Kiesland team had worked with Presto previously in 2005 when Presto acquired an existing building and expanded it to include freezer/cooler warehouse space. Now it was time to address the sales/administrative side of the business which had been stuffed into a less than ideal workspace.

Presto Turtlecreek Conference RoomFortunately, the building allowed for expanding the office onto an existing storage mezzanine. The challenge was to economically construct 5,000 square feet of office space on the mezzanine that would tie-in with the warehouse and the 1st floor offices while meeting egress building codes that didn’t exist when the building was originally built. Kiesland collaborated with Architect, Mike Wentz of Wentz Design to develop a floor plan “topper” that would meet the needs for good circulation and stay within an aggressive budget. Work started in June 2011 and wrapped up in October 2011.
