NuVasive Expands Locally

When San Diego-based medical device company NuVasive wanted to expand operations with a state-of-the-art manufacturing facility, its Fairborn site lacked the flexibility needed for growth. Miller-Valentine Group’s team of experts stepped into the fray, providing NuVasive with a real estate solution that empowered the manufacturer to make the most time- and cost-effective choice; one that not only saved the existing jobs but will bring an additional 200 jobs to our region. How did NuVasive reach its decision? Denny Whitehead, Miller-Valentine Group senior vice president in the Dayton market attributes the site selection to the combined efforts of local government officials who put forward attractive incentives to keep NuVasive in the region, as well as the collaboration among Miller-Valentine’s brokerage, construction, development, and property management teams.

Celebrating On-the-Job Safety

In June, Miller-Valentine Construction hit a milestone date six years in the making… 1,000,000 hours worked Accident Free!  It’s clear that safety is a priority at Miller-Valentine, and of daily significance on job sites and in the office. Bill Burke, Safety Director, leads the safety program for Miller-Valentine Construction.  Burke, a 22-year industry veteran, and certified OSHA outreach instructor is responsible for reviewing and implementing safety tactics to ensure all Associates return home safe at the end of the day.  However, ensuring a strong safety program is in place and carried out is not a one man job.  According to Bill, “Our Associates are the reason for our success. Everyone at the company has a stake in safety.” Management constantly challenges all Associates to apply, train, inspect and monitor safety practices in order to ensure safety on construction job sites.”  Making Workplace Safety Part of the Corporate Culture Achieving an outstanding safety record comes as a result of hard work. When the Occupational Safety and Health Act of 1970 was passed by Congress, the intent was “to assure so far as possible every working man and woman in the Nation safe and healthful working conditions and to preserve our human resources (more)

Miller-Valentine Group goes to the Movies Fighting Hunger

Once again, Miller-Valentine Group Associates carried out one of its fundamental corporate beliefs; the commitment to being a model corporate citizen in the communities we serve. “Helping Hands”, the Miller-Valentine program providing opportunities for Associates to engage in community service, held a food drive for the benefit of the Dayton Foodbank and Mason Food Pantry.

Structures were assembled representing both older and newer movies, including Jaws, Ghostbusters, Batman vs. Superman, Up, Wizard of Oz, Star Wars, San Andreas, and Captain America (see them all here). The food drive and the competition were very successful, with the local community being the ultimate winner: Dayton Foodbank: 1,062 cans donated 1,191 pounds Mason Food Pantry: 2,213 items donated (2,021 were cans) Approximately 3,050 pounds Company totals: 3,275 items donated weighing 4,241 pounds (approximately 2 tons) This is the 3rd year Associates have participated in the friendly and successful competition.

Dayton Industrial Market Vacancies

Dayton Industrial Market Continues to Improve

The Dayton industrial market continues to make significant gains. Over the past year, the vacancy rate dropped to 12.22% from a reported figure of 13.96% in 2015. The industrial market has not reached rates this low since the early 2000s. The Upper Valley continues to lead the Dayton submarkets with a 4.92% vacancy rate, followed by East Dayton at 7.45% and North Dayton at 10.18%.  The South Dayton market showed the greatest % improvement in 2016, absorbing over 300,000 sqft. of space. Now that quality space is limited, the Dayton industrial market is getting much tighter. Sale prices are continuing to rise and landlords are requiring longer lease terms at higher rates. The continued increase in construction pricing is further fueling the competition among tenants/buyers to find quality space at a reasonable rate. This increasing demand against an insufficient supply of class “A” industrial space will spur more build-to-suit projects in the region.

  A second, 67,500 SF speculative warehouse building is now under construction within the Atlas Commerce Center’s multi-phased development located in Palmetto Commerce Park, the premier industrial park in the Greater Charleston, SC region. The facility is geared towards smaller tenants looking for Class “A” industrial space, set to be subdivided into minimum 7,500 SF users.

Ohio Earns Gold Shovel Award with Industrial Building Construction Projects

Each year, Area Development magazine sponsors Gold and Silver Shovel Awards to acknowledge states that excel at attracting investment for job creation. By evaluating states’ top-10 job-creation and investment projects based on a variety of factors, including new jobs created relative to population size and diversity of industries represented, among others. Competition this year, says Area Development, was fierce. In an article announcing the winners, the publication said, “States and localities understandably have raised their general expectations with the U.S. economy generating stronger growth prospects, confidence in American manufacturing on the rise, and a number of high-profile siting, expansion, and relocation decisions fueling economic development pursuits.” And Ohio was one of the select few to earn Gold Shovel recognition in the population of 8- to 12-million category—and two Miller-Valentine Group industrial building construction projects helped Ohio secure the win.
