“ As office environments have become more unstructured and companies move their data to the cloud, we’ve seen our data destruction and logistics business grow rapidly to meet the market shift. We required a significantly larger physical space near our former location and major highways to continue servicing our IT VAR and ITAD clients. Locating and securing the perfect property became an easy and seamless process with the assistance of our broker Andrew Somple. Working with NAI, we found a bigger and centrally-located office and warehouse space that offered a custom buildout. And negotiating the lease was not a battle. NAI was a pleasure to work with and instrumental in supporting the future growth of Guardian Data Destruction and our global Fortune 500 market.”
