Former Quad/Graphics Building Open for Businesses
Written by Bradley Schlegel, Staff Writer

All Balls Racing the first Tenant for East Greenville Business Center

Within three days of completing its purchase of the former Quad/Graphics building in March, the new owner had secured its first tenant.

"We closed on a Friday," said Gene Call, of the Audubon Land Development Corporation. The following Monday, he said, All Balls Racing agreed to relocate to the facility at 668 Gravel Pike in Upper Hanover.

According to Call, the motorcycle supply business – which is currently located near the Boyertown area Wal-Mart in Colebrookdale Township – has begun moving into the vacant facility and should be open for business within a month.

All Balls needs more space, according to Call, who works in the development corporation's marketing division. He said his company's structure, spread out with high ceilings and expansive open spaces better fits the business' requirements.

"It's a great facility," he said. "The building has good bones."

Eventually, the facility will likely operate as a multi-tenant industrial facility that hosts manufacturing and distribution businesses, according to Joseph B. McDermott, a senior vice president with the brokerage firm that helped facilitate the purchase from QG Printing II.

"We're working on a few deals," said Justin Call, Gene's nephew, who also works in the development corporation's marketing division.

The property owner is currently in negotiations with one manufacturing entity and an additional distribution company, according to Gene Call. He said the building, the former home of Brown Printing and Quad Graphics, could have a second tenant by September.

The building could house between two and six business, according to Gene Call. He said recent renovations to office space might spur additional interest.

Business owners from as far away as Delaware have toured the facility, which includes access to a rail line, according to Gene Call. He said most of the inquiries have come from entities located in southeastern Pennsylvania.

"I'm hearing people complain about the price of labor," Gene Call said. "They think they can come to (Upper Hanover) and hire people at a more reasonable cost."

The Audubon Land Development Corporation, a family-owned and operated business with more than 50 years of development, building and management experience, operates similar facilities along the 422 corridor between Reading and King of Prussia and around Morgantown, according to Gene Call.

            The corporation also built the Audubon Square Shopping Center, The Hilton Homewood Suites in Audubon, the 422 Business Center, The Hilton Garden Inn at Oaks, the Marketplace at Oaks, including Target, Lowe's and Regal Cinemas and the Greater Philadelphia Expo in Oaks, according to information on its website.
