The year was late 1995 and a referral came in from an agent in Las Vegas. The deal was not very large at just 24,000 SF, but I was young and with just three years in the commercial real estate business I was excited for the referral. In my wildest dreams I would not have fathomed that 23 years and roughly 200 transactions later, between new deals and lease renewals, Mygrant Glass Company continues as one of our most active clients.
We are celebrating Mygrants incredible success this year with the purchase and opening of their new 70,000 square foot build to suit facility here in Salt Lake City this last month, and the upcoming purchase of a new 100,000 square foot build to suit facility in the Deer Valley submarket of Phoenix, Arizona.
What a ride this has been for all of us! Rapidly approaching 80 locations in North America, Mygrant is by far the largest independent automotive glass wholesaler and by sheer volume of inventory and footprint, arguably the largest compared to all other national auto glass distributors.
On behalf of Mygrant Glass, we have been blessed to work with many landlords, their agents, contractors, and a literal army of primarily SIOR colleagues, whom we have partnered with on Mygrant Glass’ national expansion.
Thank you to all who have helped us along the way and most importantly congratulations to all the hard working people at Mygrant Glass who support their visionary owners to realize their dreams.
