Synergy Building Systems Breaks Ground in Dayton to Support Growing Defense Business
Synergy Building Systems recently broke ground on a 63,000 square-foot facility in Dayton to accommodate the growing needs of defense contractors that call Wright-Patterson Air Force Base home.
Synergy will soon open the Class A facility to house research and development capabilities for the growing defense contracting industry, officials said.
“Synergy is proud to deliver innovative and collaborative defense space to a marketplace that is currently underserved in the Wright-Patterson Air Force Base area,” said Synergy Building Systems Director of Development John Kopilchack.
This project was made possible due to the close partnership between the City of Beavercreek, Greene County, JobsOhio, and the Dayton Development Coalition. The site offers several advantages for the tenants of the facility, including access to major freeways and a reliable utility infrastructure. The strategic location also gives defense contractors access secure space to support Wright-Patterson Air Force Base’s mission.
“Available secure facilities are extremely undersupplied in the market limiting the amount of work able to be done outside the fence in support of WPAFB,” said the Dayton Development Coalition’s Executive Vice President of Regional Development Julie Sullivan.
“This development will help to solidify the City of Beavercreek’s vision for this area,” said the City of Beavercreek’s Mayor Bob Stone. “The addition of 63,000 square feet of office space to support numerous high-paying office jobs will be a welcome addition to the City’s commercial sector, which will strengthen and diversify our already thriving local economy.”
JobsOhio approved an Ohio Site Inventory Program (OSIP) grant. OSIP offers grants and low-interest loans to support speculative site and building development projects with no identified end user. The primary goal of OSIP is to fill gaps in Ohio’s real estate inventory with real estate targeting near-term sector wins to ensure our state is more competitive for reactive site selection projects.
“Synergy Building Systems continues to strategically develop in Western Ohio, helping the Region capture the economic development opportunity presented by the growth of Wright-Patterson Air Force Base, a major economic driver for the Dayton Region,” said J.P. Nauseef, JobsOhio president and CEO. “This facility strengthens Ohio's reputation to meet the high demand for establishing secure spaces critical to attracting contractors that will advance our national defense initiatives.”
