Bill Kuhns, SIOR, Senior Broker with FM Stone Commercial assisted Girard Systems and Girard Products LLC in leasing 30,800 SF of industrial space at 2515 Lombardy Drive in Goshen. The move into this south side building is due to the company expanding.
“Our business has dramatically increased and we have outgrown our San Clemente, Calif., facility,” said Marcia Girard, CEO and President of Girard. “Our goal is to be closer to our customers and provide faster service. We have moved Girard Products’ entire Tankless Water Heater operation to Goshen and we will be doing all R&D, testing and order processing and shipping from this location starting in November. We have many new innovative products in development and being in Goshen will allow us to work closely with our OEM customers in their development.”
A leader of green technology in the RV Industry, Girard Products specializes in responsible components that reduce energy consumption, are recyclable, feature dependable long term performance and help reduce the carbon footprint. The Girard Tankless Water Heater is designed to provide endless hot water on demand unlike storage tank water heaters which require time to recover after running out of hot water. More than 30 brands of major RVs are now offering the Girard Tankless Water Heater on their 2013 and 2014 models either as an option or as standard equipment. Girard Systems also has new awnings in development and will begin to expand certain awning and shade production in its new Goshen facility after the first of the year.
