Proud to have provided signage for STEMCO Air Springs! J oekist@centralgraphicsgroup.com SIGNS OF CHANGE Once a component of Goodyear’s Engineered Products, the air springs division was acquired by STEMCO in the summer of 2015. 1658 State Road Cuyahoga Falls OH 44223 330.928.7080 x307 Cell # 330.328.7306 jll.com/cleveland “There was a tremendous sense of urgency to get this project done,” Trowbridge says. “Right away, STEMCO examined its various options. They looked at a number of existing buildings in the Northeast Ohio area. Ultimately, they decided to invest in the long-term and actually build a whole new dedi-cated facility.” That decision was made in September 2015, Trowbridge says. With only 10 months left, the clock was ticking. Enter brokers A.J. Magner and Scott Pick of JLL, which would serve as owner’s repre-sentative for STEMCO’s relocation effort. Immediately, the team began identify-ing possible sites, ultimately deciding on a plot of construction-ready green-field at Fairlawn Corporate park, just a mile from its existing headquarters. Concurrently, Hasenstab Architects began programming for the proposed facility, in advance of the selection of a design/build partner. “The biggest challenge was the schedule,” says Jack Duff, senior project manager with JLL. “Thankfully, the City of Fairlawn owned the land and they were very cooperative in helping the project move along.” In October, Geis Companies was hired to handle design and construc-tion, and programming was handed off to the company’s in-house design team GLSD Architects. Site work began in November 2015. Construction kicked off the following month. Throughout the process, JLL assisted STEMCO with lease negotiation, pre-lease budgeting, tax incentives and project management services.
