Entre Commercial Realty represents tenant with major expansion as part of growth in PPE production

Entre Commercial Realty represented Superior Felt & Filtration (SFF) in their expansion as the company continues rapid growth in part due to ramping up PPE production. SFF has leased 75,000 square feet at 1359 Ridgeview in McHenry, Illinois.

This is a high-image manufacturing facility owned by Midwest Industrial Funds (MIF). The building is a 218,064-square-foot former Motorola production site featuring 28-foot clear height, 7,000 amps of power, ESFR sprinkler system and partially air-conditioned warehouse. MIF will be renovating office, adding air conditioning capacity and demising the facility to accommodate SFF.

SFF offers a diverse range of felt and filtration products and they are a vital subcomponent manufacturer supporting the disposable surgical hood, N95 mask component, BFE/VFE and ventilator filter markets. This expansion enables SFF to continue to meet the immediate medical filtration needs of the U.S. government and vital customers across six continents. In ramping up in the face of the COVID-19 pandemic, SFF has tripled its capacity over the last two months, which will continue to grow with this expansion and the additional investment in new manufacturing equipment.

Entre’s Dan Benassi, SIOR, Dan Jones, SIOR and Sam Deihs represented Superior Felt & Filtration in the transaction.
