Schill Grounds Management has recently acquired a facility that spans 20,000 square feet in Middleburg Heights. The building, which was formerly used as a logistics facility, will do a great job of accommodating Schill’s large fleet of landscaping and snow removal vehicles. Furthermore, the facility allows for quick access to the highway and is located in an area that will help the company service its Cleveland area clients more efficiently.
Because Schill operates within an industry that places a lot of emphasis on design, the company is investing a great deal of time and resources into the renovation of the facility. This includes changes to the fencing and parking areas, as well as upgrades to the building and landscaping. When the project is completed, Schill Grounds Management will have invested hundreds of thousands of dollars, which will in turn stimulate the local economy. Work on the property is scheduled to be completed in late November, after which Schill hopes to create over 50 new jobs in the area.
When questioned about the project, Jerry Schill, the president and founder of the company, had this to say:
“When we were looking for another location around the Cleveland market, Middleburg Heights met all of our requirements. The city has exceptional highway access and a reputation of being business-friendly. Mayor Starr and his entire team were great to work with and were very helpful in making this a reality.”
This project complements the company’s commitment to corporate sustainability, as repurposing this existing facility instead of building a new one will reduce potential waste and allow the company to allocate more time and funds to cultivating local talent.
