Colliers International negotiates long-term Lease for manufacturer of home, commercial and RV awnings in San Clemente industrial park

Brokerage firm represents Carrillo Equities in 18,000-square-foot transaction in Calle Amanecer Business Park

SAN CLEMENTE, CA – Oct. 17, 2017 – Girard Systems, one of the nation’s largest manufacturers of residential, commercial and recreational vehicle awnings, has expanded into a third building in the Calle Amanecer Business Park in San Clemente, Calif., after signing an 18,000-square-foot lease in a transaction negotiated by Colliers International.

Located at 990 Calle Amanecer, this is the third building that expansion-minded Girard has leased within the business park over the past 18 months, according to Colliers Senior Vice President Joe Crotty who, along with Associate Sam Lacebal, represented the property owner, Carrillo Equities. This particular location includes 15,000 square feet of manufacturing and installation space and another 3,000 square feet of creative office space.

“With the economy continuing to expand, demand for products like those produced by Girard are in high demand,” said Crotty. “This is reflected in the record low vacancy rates we are seeing not just in Orange County, but also in San Diego, Los Angeles and the Inland Empire. No where is demand for industrial space higher than in Southern California.”

Crotty is based in the brokerage firm’s Encinitas office and Lacebal in the company’s Irvine, Calif. regional headquarters. Girard represented itself in the transaction.
