The Klabin Company Negotiates Transaction on Behalf of Building Owner, Steven L. Koch.

(MARCH 9, 2018 – TORRANCE, CALIF.) – The Klabin Company/CORFAC International today announced it negotiated a lease on behalf of Steven L. Koch for his industrial building at 15000 S. Broadway in Gardena, Calif.

The Klabin Company’s Senior Vice President Courtney Bell, along with his colleague Matthew Stringfellow, SIOR, represented Mr. Koch in the five-year lease transaction for 44,066 square feet of space and valued at almost $2 million. The tenant, St. James Home, a premier international bedding products manufacturer, was represented by Peter Donnellan of Gateway Business Properties.

St. James Home’s business includes the design and manufacturing of bedding ranging from sheets and down comforters to mattress pads and toppers. Its products are available in-store and online from the most recognizable home goods retailers around the world, including Bed Bath & Beyond, Walmart, Lowe’s and many others.

“St. James Home was looking for a secondary location in Gardena as it rapidly expands,” said Bell. “This is a classic brick building that was extensively refurbished by the landlord to offer modern warehouse amenities such as dock-high loading capabilities. Mr. Koch went above and beyond in updating the building so that it would attract a company like St. James Home with very specific shipping and receiving needs to accommodate its growth. The tenant will gain much needed warehouse space, close to its existing location, and the landlord secures a long-term lease with a quality international company, so all parties are very pleased.”
