Teaming up with our synergistic JV partners, we’re eager to re-market the facility, reinforcing our commitment to the pharma sector. This marks another exciting opportunity for Heritage Global Partners,” commented Nick Dove, President of HGP.
Adam Covitt, President of Federal Equipment Company added, “This plant represents a fantastic opportunity for any pharmaceutical company looking to add immediate capacity and/or expand into the St. Louis market. The plant is exceptional, and I imagine it will command significant interest from the marketplace.”
Tom Murray, a Principal at New Mill Capital stated, “We are pleased to bring this site to market and leverage the success from the two St. Louis area pharma plants our JV sold on our previous project.”
