The Southshore Companies had been seeking additional, quality warehouse space to purchase in the Elkhart, Indiana market to service our warehousing logistics, distribution and real estate lease customers. We were fortunate to recently acquire two warehouse buildings that are located close to our existing 190,000 square foot distribution facility in Elkhart.
Southshore’s real estate development staff and mechanical contractor partners have completed significant improvements to the buildings including new exteriors, upgraded and painted interiors and comprehensive warehouse air conditioning systems.
Within forty-five days of the real estate closing, Southshore was able to fully occupy the space in both buildings. A long time Southshore customer is utilizing Southshore logistics outsourcing services in one building and the other building has been leased to an innovative fiber manufacturing company.
Southshore is thankful to the professional services firms that assisted us with these real estate acquisitions, and most importantly, we are grateful to our customers who make the decision to do business with Southshore every day. Once again, Southshore has demonstrated a commitment to intelligent business growth driven by customer requirements.
