NGKF Capital Markets has successfully completed the sale of 800 Nave Road in Massillon, Ohio to Tuffli Company, marking the California-based firm’s first acquisition in Ohio. NGKF Capital Markets Managing Director Daniel Fromm and industrial specialists Terry Coyne, vice chairman and Kristy Hull, managing director, oversaw the $6.22 million, 85,000-square-foot transaction on behalf of previous ownership, 3D3E, Ltd.
“Terry and Kristy were able to quickly secure an out-of-state buyer and have our property under contract within 45 days of marketing the single-tenant property for sale,” said Scott Finerman, CFO of 3D3E, Ltd. “They were diligent and hands-on throughout the entire process to bring it to a successful close in order to maximize the term of the lease in place. We were very happy and successful in using them for the sale of our property.”
Comprising two buildings, 800 Nave Road includes one 65,000-square-foot building consisting of 13,000 square feet of office space and 51,000 square feet of warehouse/manufacturing space. This building houses six cranes. The second building totals 20,000 square feet of warehouse space and boasts two, 10-ton cranes. 800 Nave Road is fully occupied by Magnetech Industrial Services, a leading provider of integrated mechanical and electrical services and products. The firm has fully occupied 800 Nave Road since 2007, and serves as the company’s headquarters.
“3D3E, Ltd. wanted to sell 800 Nave Road before the end of 2016 to maximize its term of the lease,” said Coyne. “Within one week we were able to source a west coast buyer who had no previous history investing in Ohio, but was a great fit due to its interest in manufacturing assets.”
Located eight miles east of Canton, on the south side of Massillon, 800 Nave Road sits on the northeast quadrant of the intersection of Route 30 and Route 21. The city of Massillon was home to large steel plants in the 20th century, including Central Alloy, Republic Steel and Enduro Stainless, to name a few. Massillon is still home to manufacturing companies, but also features other companies such as Campbell Oil, Heinz Frozen Food Co, Shearer’s Foods, Tower Industries, and more.
