Testimonials

We completed a turnkey expansion and renovation of our facility with Griffin, and it turned out great. From design, to project management and implementation, Griffin worked collaboratively with my team to meet our space needs and schedule. Their people are attentive and responsive to their tenants and make sure they are satisfied.

David Ford

President

My experience with you on behalf of Griffin Industrial Realty has been exceptional and I have found our interactions to be truly professional. Our experience with Griffin has been a good one and we look forward to working with you in the future.

Octavio Gomez

President, Art Consultant

Griffin has been the major developer in Windsor for many years. They’ve done a good job at attracting interest from quality companies and they’ve been great partners in terms of their quality of development – the kinds of buildings they build and the landscaping they do. They’ve always been concerned with how the buildings and landscaping look. Their construction people can build a building pretty quickly, they are very good at responding to any issues that may come up.

Jim Burke

Economic Development Director

They’re good businesspeople but very fair in the way they handle things. We reached an agreement pretty easily and they clearly knew what they were doing. They’ve been down this road before and it was very easy dealing with them. They developed the site for us, so they were able to work with the contractor and local authorities to get all the permits that were necessary. They also had a longstanding relationship with the contractor and were able to get up to speed very quickly. We finished the project within the timeframe that we required. We’re very happy to be in their park and happy to have a good relationship with Griffin.

Tom Veldman

Chairman

Pilot Freight Services needed to expand due to an increase in sales and logistics. We wanted a state of the art building to provide our customers with the best service in the industry. Griffin had just what we needed and they worked closely with us to ensure the move will be a smooth transition.

Kim Gajewski

Regional Vice President

Griffin creates attractive buildings, maintains them well, and keeps them up to date – and their rental rates compare very favorably with other locations, given the quality of the buildings. They’re always willing to do what they have to do to make a client comfortable with the building as a choice. That’s one reason why their buildings have very high occupancy levels.

Griffin was ahead of its time when the parks were first built, and they still maintain that state-of-the-art look today compared to other parks in Connecticut. They’ve always had strong executive leadership, they’re very involved in the community and they’re certainly known to brokers and people in the region as a strong company with deep roots.

Jon Putnam

Executive Director

We began our relationship with Griffin in 2003. We were consolidating in Windsor, and the property was what we needed and where we needed it. At the time, we had just recently acquired ABB CE Nuclear Group on Day Hill Road, and we had to make a decision to whether to stay there or move elsewhere. We chose a building on International Drive, in the New England Tradeport. It was a new facility and convenient to the airport, which is important for us. We recently extended our lease for 10 years. Griffin always been very professional and very responsive.

Russ Bussard

Director of Real Estate and Facilities

The Griffin team has been great to work with and frankly their expertise was a deciding factor when we were looking to relocate our office. Their strong knowledge and experience in green and sustainable buildings was very attractive to us. We have been very pleased with the outcome so far and are hopeful that we secure a LEED Gold certification.

W. Brewster Earle

President

As we explored office space, we were looking for a long-term partner. Griffin fit that necessary requirement as they truly listened to our needs and provided expert advice. Their professionalism, flexibility and on-time delivery of the property displayed their commitment.

Jose Medina

Managing Member

Nidec America needed to downsize from our 23,000-square-foot facility in Torrington. I knew that finding the right location for us would be a challenge. The facility at 16 International Drive was exactly what we required and was virtually move-in ready, offering everything we needed. Griffin has been outstanding landlord. They’re just really great people and they’re very, very attentive to our needs. I’d recommend them to anyone.

Chip McIsaac

Director of Sales

We saw incredible potential with the property. Griffin was able to accommodate our needs with minimal demolition and even some room to expand. Input from KMC employees was encouraged – and many of the suggestions they presented were integrated into the build, including wireless communications, design elements, furnishings, and theme. I am proud of the work that both Griffin and KMC invested into our new headquarters.

Bob Crescitelli

Vice President of Operations

We’re industrial brokers, and from an industrial standpoint, Griffin has most recent and relevant projects in the state. They’ve got high quality properties and the developments are built and managed very professionally. Plus, they’re very straightforward and very professional themselves. When we place a tenant there, we never have to worry about the quality of the services the company will provide. If you have a client looking for existing space or land in the northern sector of Connecticut, then Griffin is an automatic call to confirm what they have available.
