"They follow through, they call, they ask questions, they take care of the problems and solve the issues."
Relationships matter. That’s a core philosophy shared by Meritex and one of its tenants, MVP Logistics. By creating partnerships and putting people first, both companies have been able to grow, thrive, and find a like-minded partnership.
MVP Logistics started in August 2007 as an idea on a restaurant napkin. From humble beginnings, they have grown into a large company with a robust fleet and a headquarters in Plymouth. This allows them to make the complex world of supply chain manageable for companies by providing international freight and warehousing services. When it comes to logistics, they can do anything from sushi to hazardous waste. You name it, they’ve moved it.
While they have a national reach, everything starts at home in their Plymouth-based headquarters, which is where Meritex comes in. MVP Logistics currently occupies 200,000 square feet within Parkers Lake Commerce Center. MVP has been located there for several years and uses the space for distribution and fulfillment. Every day, MVP picks and packs orders for clothing, fishing rods, lawn mowers, appliances, and more, loads them on trucks, and sends them out.
Meritex acquired the Parkers Lake Commerce Center in 2021, and quickly worked to build a relationship with tenants to find the best ways to support them.
“Meritex acquired the building we were in. We signed a new lease right before Meritex acquired us, so we stayed,” said Dirk Updike, VP of Operations MVP Logistics. “But, we’re happy with the building and situation we’re currently in. They’re the best property management firm I’ve ever worked with.”
Ultimately, Meritex aims to support tenants and ensure they can do their important work without having to worry about their space. The Parkers Lake facility is no different. Dirk added that Dan Mattice, the Meritex maintenance engineer who handles maintenance at the property, takes great care of them. He’s always there within thirty minutes if there’s any issue, he’s solution-oriented, he never complains, and he is on the look-out for ways to support the team whenever possible.
Dirk adds, “I appreciate the responsiveness of the entire team. Anyone you need to talk to is willing to talk to you. The management team calls to check-in. They follow through, they call, they ask questions, they take care of the problems and solve the issues. In the grand scheme of things, they really do care about us as a partner. Dan especially cares that we’re his tenant, and he likes to make sure we’re taken care of.”
The team at Meritex is dedicated to partnering with MVP Logistics to ensure their continued success at Parkers Lake Commerce Center.
