Bobby Lyons, SIOR, CCIM is pleased to announce that the former F.O. Merz facility located at 630 Edgefield Road in Cowpens, SC has sold to a developer. The Covington Group purchased the property on June 25th, 2019 and has plans for a complete redevelopment of the property. Suminoe Textiles, a Japanese automotive supplier whose North American headquarters is in Cherokee County, began leasing the building in June, 2012 and is still the tenant.

Lyons began representing Fred and Nan Merz over 13 years ago when they closed their import / export business that they started in 1931. Lyons Industrial Properties began leasing the building to generate income for the family. Lyons continued to lease the facility to several tenants over the last 12 years and the decision was made this year to sell the asset.

“It has been a great long term relationship with Ms. Nan Merz and we are happy the sale went through successfully and without any issues but we are saddened that our assignment with her has come to an end. Fortunately, my friendship with her will not.” – Bobby Lyons, SIOR, CCIM

Testimonial from our client:

“Bobby Lyons with Lyons Industrial Properties has gone considerably beyond what one reasonably could expect from a commercial real estate broker. Through many years, Bobby has unfailingly negotiated excellent leases for us and most recently has overseen and concluded an advantageous sale for me and my family.

Twelve years ago, as a recently widowed lady with no experience in such matters,  Bobby was always available to give sound advice and assistance in any way he could . Professionally and personally Bobby is a highly principled and caring person truly looking out for his clients’ best interests.  I would highly recommend Lyons Industrial Properties to anyone valuing excellence and appreciating the best. ”

-Ms. Nan Merz
