Fort Thomas, KY, United States, 2011/05/17 - The Lichter/Semarjian partnership, combining Industrial Realty Group with Industrial Commerce Ltd., has purchased over six million square feet of industrial facilities in the Midwest over the last three weeks.
Stuart Lichter, owner and President of Industrial Realty Group (IRG) of Los Angeles and barnstorming partner of Rust Belt rejuvenator Chris Semarjian with Industrial Commerce Ltd. of Cleveland, is scheduled to appear on The FOX Business Network tomorrow.
Lichter is scheduled to appear on Bulls and Bears, which airs 4-5 pm. EST. The FOX Business Network (FBN), based in New York, is owned by FOX Entertertainment Group, part of the News Corp. international mega-media conglomerate owned by Rupert Murdoch.
The saying at The FOX Business Network is "The Power to Prosper; Opportunity. Pure and simple."
Plenty apropos for Lichter, a businessman who, in recent weeks, has teamed up with his partner, Semarjian, to announce a string of new projects across the Heartland:
- the creation of up to 2,000 new jobs at Progress Park in Moraine, Ohio, formerly known as the GM Moraine Assembly Plant;
- a new global headquarters for the Goodyear Tire and Rubber Company, as well as a remake of its 1.4 million square feet of facilities in Akron, Ohio;
- a new global distribution and manufacturing center for Suarez Corp. Industries at The Hoover District in North Canton, former headquarters of the legendary Hoover Co., a vacuum manufacturer.
Suarez announced its new world headquarters at a press conference at The Hoover District on May 10. The GM Moraine plant was renamed Progress Park at a ceremony held April 26, a little more than one week after the Goodyear Tire and Rubber Company project was announced on April 18.
Messrs. Semarjian and Lichter are available for media interviews.
