York, Harrisburg firms on the move

The new year is poised to bring new digs to two local companies.

Reynolds Restoration Services bought a flex property in suburban Harrisburg for its new headquarters.

York County-based construction firm Wagman also has purchased a building for a new HQ, a property in Manchester Township, York County.

Both companies said they are outgrowing their current spaces.

Starting with: Reynolds Restoration.

A real estate partnership affiliated with the Harrisburg-based firm bought a two-building property at 6195-6197 Allentown Blvd. in Lower Paxton Township, Dauphin County.

Terms of the transaction were not disclosed and a deed was not available electronically as of the end of 2023.

Art Campbell and Jessica Gasper of Lemoyne-based Campbell Commercial Real Estate represented the seller. Jessica Lilly of Camp Hill-based Landmark Commercial Realty represented the buyer, 6195 LLC.

One building on the three-acre site is occupied by Underdog Sports Bar & Grill, which is staying put.

Reynolds plans to use the other building on the property, a 23,000 square-foot space with about 10,000 square feet of office and 13,000 of warehouse, according to Anthony Worrall, the company’s owner and president.

“This is definitely more space than we need right now but it’s fueling some growth that we have going on,” said Worrall.

The company is currently based in about 15,000 square feet of leased space at 3539 N. 6th St. in Susquehanna Township, Dauphin County.

When’s the move: It is tentatively scheduled for May, Worrall said, noting that he plans to renovate the Alentown Boulevard property first.

The space will house the headquarters of Reynolds, which has about 60 employees, as well as branches in Philadelphia and Baltimore.

It will also house administrative functions for Everound, a Camp Hill-based IT services company that Worrall and two partners founded in 2019, said Worrall. The firm employs eight people.

Worrall said he plans to expand operations under a holding company, with details to come later this year.

The property was previously home to an electronics retailer called HiDEF Lifestyle Inc., which filed for bankruptcy in July 2022.

Owner C. Aaron Sholtis said he is reviving the brand under the aegis of HiDEF Lifestyle LLC and plans to relocate it to San Diego.

Moving on to: Wagman.

The company paid $4.1 million for an office building at 3265 Farmtrail Road in Manchester, where it plans to move its main office.

Ben Chairo of Lancaster-based TRUE Commercial Real Estate represented Wagman in the transaction.

David Bode of York-based ROCK Commercial Real Estate represented the seller, Farmtrail Holdings LP, a partnership headed by Paul Kilker, founder of the property’s current occupant, GGS Information Services.

Why is this happening: Wagman has been evaluating alternatives to its current HQ for several years, according to a press release.

The office at 3290 North Susquehanna Trail in Manchester Township houses Wagman’s operations HQ, as well as its HR, accounting, legal, IT, marketing and safety teams.

The building has served the company well for more than half a century, Wagman CEO Mike Glezer said in a statement. “But the maintenance is costly, expansion options were limited and the layout presents constraints to our teams. We also need more parking.”

Wagman has hired York-based Warehaus to help design its new office at Farmtrail Road, a building Wagman erected originally for GGS.

“3265 Farmtrail Road has been a consideration for several years since it was adjacent to our existing campus,” Glezer said. “Our team is very excited.”

The company plans to keep its North Susquehanna Trail space as a field service center and expand it.

What about GGS: It is leasing back the space for a few months and is in the midst of negotiating a lease for its next home, according to Bode.

Founded in 1988, GGS is an engineering and technology consulting firm and a provider of technical publication services.

Based in York County, it has operations in 11 locations in five countries.
