U.S. Homecare Products expands
Nevada-based U.S. Homecare Products LLC is expanding in Virginia Beach.
The company is leasing a 59,625-square-foot space in the Ocean South Industrial Park at 1345 Taylor Farm Road.
This space nearly doubles the company’s existing 31,800-square-foot lease at the same location. Additionally, U.S. Homecare will add eight to 10 jobs with average salaries of $32,000.
The company imports and distributes health-care products. U.S. Homecare offers a line of incontinence products in addition to advanced wound dressings, urologicals, skin care and home care products.
The expansion is the result of a partnership formed last year with Abena North America (ANA), based in Culver City, Calif. Its parent company is a Danish, family-owned manufacturer and wholesaler of health-care products. The Abena Group supplies more than 25,000 products and operates in more than 80 countries across the globe.
Abena North America markets and sells Abena-branded products in Mexico, United States and Canada. It is shifting the majority of its distribution operations from California to Virginia Beach. The company cited the beach city's proximity to the Port of Virginia as strategic since 95 percent of goods sold originate from Europe and Asia and are delivered in containers by sea freight.
Geoff Poston, Tony Weiss and Patrick Mumey with Cushman & Wakefield | Thalhimer represented the landlord, James M. Beverly, in the negotiations.
Glenn Gibson with Harvey Lindsay Commercial Real Estate represented the tenant.
The transaction brings the 95,400-square-foot facility to full occupancy.
