“We are pleased to be part of such a meaningful project for WABCO,” Beichler said. “The new Americas HQ will be a showcase for their product development and a key attribute for their employee workplace.” We have enjoyed our working relationship with WABCO and their executive leadership team providing solutions across their real estate portfolio.”
Over the course of the relocation, Mohr Partners provided multiple services, including site selection, lease negotiations, local and state incentive negotiations, and support initiating the project management process, including selection of the design team.
