Mericle Commercial Real Estate Services was founded by Robert Mericle in 1985. Mericle has developed more than 22 million square feet of industrial, office, flex, and medical space in 15 Northeastern Pennsylvania business parks. More than 14,500 people work in buildings developed by Mericle. The company employs approximately 250 professionals who self-perform the design, construction, and maintenance of its development portfolio. For more information, visit mericle.com.
In most cases, we can get a client into a new building that’s fully ready for occupancy in just six to nine months, a far more accelerated timeline than what most developers can offer.
We also develop speculativeReadyToGo!™ Buildings. Given our three-plus decades of commercial construction experience, we have a unique and in-depth understanding of market conditions and the types of facilities that different prospective tenants want. We use our knowledge and understanding to invest in ReadyToGo!™ Buildings that are waiting for your business to assume occupancy — right now!
Finally, we also offer ReadyToGo!™ Trailer Storage, which is meant to help the occupants of industrial buildings that currently require off-site storage locations. These storage locations can be difficult to find, and they are often inadequate in meeting the needs of industrial operations. Our ReadyToGo!™ Trailer Storage sites are specifically designed to meet those unique needs, including complete clearing, grading and compacting. They are ready for trailer storage immediately.
Mericle’s in-house Excavation team consists of dozens of licensed heavy equipment operators and more than 80 Mericle-owned pieces of equipment. Excavation prepares sites for construction faster and more economically than all other commercial real estate developers in Northeastern Pennsylvania.
At Mericle Commercial Real Estate, we’re more than just a service provider for businesses that need new land or buildings. We are a strategic partner that can help facilitate growth and accelerate the many tasks needed for an expansion. Rather than waiting for new opportunities, we take action. That includes investing in land and buildings that we know are ideal for industrial operations and other businesses, and then getting that land and those buildings into as close to occupancy-ready shape as possible. We leave just enough undone that you can come in and customize an existing building so it’s ready for you to move into in 90 days or less.
In short, a Mericle ReadyToGo!™ Site will dramatically shorten the time it takes you to move your business into a newly constructed building.
Your business operates in a dramatically competitive and volatile market. The economy has rebounded, unemployment is low and businesses in a wide range of industries are looking to grow for the future. Growth demands more people and space to accommodate them. Will you be ready to take the steps needed to grow and meet rising demand? That’s exactly what we hope to help you accomplish through the ReadyToGo!™ Program.
There’s a big difference between customizing a new building from scratch and moving into an existing structure that may or may not fully meet your company’s needs. At Mericle, we offer the ReadyToGo!™ Program as a way of finding the perfect blend of these two extremes. You can customize a new structure to meet your exact specifications, but the already-completed site work moves the process forward before you ever become involved. Your growth moves forward at an incredible rate, and you can quickly ramp up in staying ahead of your competition or taking advantage of new opportunities.
In 1985, when Robert Mericle first opened this business, he envisioned a company that would make a positive impact on his hometown of Wilkes-Barre and the surrounding area. More than 30 years later, the vision with which he first started his business has become a reality — and the ReadyToGo!™ Program is just the latest manifestation of that positive impact. Companies that operate in northeastern Pennsylvania now have an advantage — the ability to grow at a speed that’s nearly impossible for competitors in other parts of the region or even country.
