Challenge

After 50 years in a South Seattle location, Romaine Electric was outgrowing their current facility and wanted to stay close to Seattle while moving South to less expensive warehouse options.

 

Solution

OfficeLease recommended the hiring of a process engineer to study the efficiency of the current facility.  He examined the plant layout, inventory control system, and the overall scope of the facility.  Upon continued exploration of company objectives, the owner decided that purchasing a building was in the company’s best interests.

 

Results

OfficeLease uncovered a vacant building that was in the right location and of the right size and worked with the client’s attorneys and accountants to negotiate a purchase of the property at a below-market price.  Romaine Electric and their employees have found the space to be much more appropriate to their needs and as a result productivity has increased considerably.
