January 22, 2007
VISALIA, Calif., Jan 22, 2007 (BUSINESS WIRE) — The Allen Group, a major developer of industrial and office properties across the United States, today announced that it has leased space in the MidState Hayes Building #2 to WorkflowOne, a leading provider of document and business process outsourcing services. The 10-year lease covers 118,000 square feet of warehousing and distribution space at the MidState 99 DistributionCenteron the northwest corner of Plaza Drive and Ferguson Avenue in Visalia, Calif.
“The new business service center in Visalia will help WorkflowOne offer improved services to our West Coast customers,” said Douglas Burnham, Senior Director of Distribution Services. “In addition to increased inventory capacity, it enables us to provide one-day shipping to virtually all of California.” WorkflowOne offers a wide variety of print and promotional products, as well as fulfillment and distribution services, to organizations of all sizes across the United States.
The MidState 99 Distribution Center is strategically located in the heart of Calif. With direct access to Highway 99, the state’s major trucking corridor, companies located at MidState 99 have the distinct advantage of being able to access both northern and southern California.
“MidState 99 is unlike any other distribution and manufacturing site in the state,” said Harve Filuk, Vice President of Development, California, The Allen Group.
“Companies located at MidState 99 tactically benefit from the ability to efficiently serve 98 percent of California overnight via next-day UPS Ground service, which is nearly impossible from other distribution site locations.”
The tenant signing of WorkflowOne will result in MidState Hayes Buildings #2 and #3 being 100 percent occupied. Filuk notes that the Company is already in the planning stages for the next speculative buildings at MidState Business Park, with hopes to begin construction this summer.
