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.
