Lease To Lincoln Electric Brings 75 New Jobs To Chattanooga

  • Wednesday, March 27, 2024

When Lincoln Electric was looking at different potential locations, Chattanooga-based commercial real estate agency Urban Story Ventures recruited the manufacturer of welding equipment and accessories to The Bend, earning it a 2024 CoStar Impact Award for lease of the year, as judged by real estate professionals familiar with the market.

The Bend is a 120-acre mixed-use development on the riverfront in downtown Chattanooga.

Officials said, "The industrial side of the development fit Lincoln Electric's needs, especially when taking into account the facilities and in-house maintenance services."

Lincoln Electric has leased 88,674 square feet of industrial space for a three-year term, bringing in 75 new jobs to The Bend.

Lincoln Electric is a publicly traded company that focuses on manufacturing welding equipment and accessories. It operates in 71 manufacturing locations in 20 countries, and it serves customers in over 160 countries.

J.P. Evans, director of leasing at Urban Story Ventures, said, "Lincoln Electric was looking at going to another market and taking those 75 jobs to Georgia. We were able to recruit them to The Bend. They have expansion plans to grow in the future."

Those who made it happen include Jimmy White, president at Urban Story Ventures; Brad Shumpert, executive vice president of Urban Story Ventures; Mary Martha McDaniel, property manager at Urban Story Ventures; Mr. Evans and Bryan Rudisill, vice president at NAI Charter.
