Hampton Roads Association for Commercial Real Estate Deal of the Year – Industrial Lease – Gold Winner

To support the growing demand for gear assemblies from automotive suppliers throughout North America, IMS: GEAR Virginia relocated from a 34,000 square-foot facility to a new 112,000 square-foot facility in Virginia Beach VA.  The move into the new building was part of the German company’s 35.5 million dollar expansion of its manufacturing operations in Hampton Roads.

The Miller Group, designed and built the new Virginia Beach headquarters and leased it to IMS: GEAR.

Several relocation options were evaluated, including renovation of older, existing spaces but in the end, the build-to-suit was a win-win for both IMS: GEAR and The Miller Group.

The Project was awesome because...

“IMS Gear had the pleasure of working with the Miller Group through the design and planning stages of the construction of a new plant to meet our growing needs in the industry. The Miller Group has demonstrated a commitment to quality and value in their plans and execution of the project with a goal of exceeding a client’s needs. The team members’ dedication had a significant impact both on the quality and cost-effectiveness of the building. The availability of the staff made communication and planning seamless. We have established a great partnership with The Miller Group and would highly recommend them to other organizations.”
