Transwestern Represents Alpha Tekniko In 55,488 SF Headquarters Lease In Chicago’s Northwest Suburbs

February 26, 2016

Transwestern today announces it represented Alpha Tekniko in its lease for an entire 55,488-square-foot manufacturing and office facility at 1290 Ensell Road in Lake Zurich, Illinois. Transwestern Principal Thomas Boyle and Director Jared Paff represented the tenant in the transaction.

“The building at 1290 Ensell Road wasn’t on the market for lease, but through our relationship with the owner, we knew the current tenant wasn’t going to renew,” Paff said. “This allowed us to secure the space for Alpha Tekniko before it was publicly listed, giving them a competitive advantage in today’s robust real estate market.”

The property includes 8,000 square feet of office space, 24-foot ceilings, four interior docks, three drive-in doors and parking for 64 vehicles. Alpha Tekniko, a developer and manufacturer of specialized healthcare patient support surfaces, has already moved into a portion of the building and will occupy the remainder by March 2016. It is relocating its headquarters from a facility at 1000 Commerce Drive, also in Lake Zurich.

“We are well-positioned for expected future growth and appreciate everything Transwestern did to help make this deal a reality,” said Alpha Tekniko CEO Ted Lazakis.
