Testimonials
E.P.I.

“Having opened, closed or moved six medical offices in three counties during the course of the past 12 years, what a refreshing experience it has been to work with Southgate Corporation. Whether construction, renovation, management, moving and storage or utility services, Southgate’s knowledge, attention to detail and resourcefulness made our relocation to Newark easy. Having experienced our fair share of Commercial Real Estate Development and Management Companies, Southgate has proven to be the most accommodating to our urgent and unexpected needs, schedules and deadlines. Despite our limited knowledge and insight to Licking County, we feared nothing. Regardless of our need, they were able to connect us with the best service providers while keeping in close contact during the course of the entire project. Thank you Southgate for making our move into the community the best it could possibly be.”

Rick Platt
President and CEO
Samuel Strapping Systems

“Southgate was the force that helped us go from about 20 employees in an outdated 50,000 square building in Columbus to over 100 employees in a 151,000 square foot facility in Heath Ohio.

They were there all along the way, walking us through every aspect of the process from start to finish. They were instrumental in locating a site for our facility, lining up a rail side, which we required, they educated us in what was available in tax breaks and rebates. They introduced us to employment agencies. Even now they continue to be a source of assistance with issues facing us long the way.   They have truly put the phrase “full service” into prospective.

The Southgate team has been very pleasurable and friendly to work with. We highly recommend them to anyone needing to expand, start a new business or relocate an existing business.”

Licking County Chamber of Commerce

“Although I have only been in my position as President and CEO for the past ten years, I am very aware of the significant role the Southgate Corporation has played in Licking County for many, many years. Southgate and the O’Neill family were early visionaries who took risks to bring industry to Licking County. Because of their hard work and investment, we have some of the best industrial parks in Ohio, which have provided jobs for thousands of people. They certainly have earned the title of “Industry Leader” in all types of development.

We are very fortunate to have Southgate Corporation in  Licking County.”
