Ifm has been extremely fortunate to have Gola Corporate Real Estate work by our side to achieve two major milestones for our company – the establishment of our technology and manufacturing operation in 2012 in Malvern and most recently, the build-to-suit project for our new U.S. headquarters in the Atwater Corporate Center. For both projects, they far exceeded our expectations serving as a dedicated partner who always had our best interests at heart. From the onset, they listened and obtained a clear understanding of our needs, business objectives and our strategic vision. We are truly proud to work with Mark and his team and look forward to working on more successful projects together.

– Roger Varma
CEO, USA Operations



The company’s move was necessary due to its annual sales growth in North America and because that growth was expected to continue.


Ifm relocated to a built-to-suit, two-story Class A office building in the Atwater Corporate Center.


Following lease signing, Gola provided full project management support with space review and programming; procurement of FF&E and low-voltage cabling contracts; finish selection assistance; budgeting for relocation and construction; construction oversight through occupancy; and move coordination.
