NAI/Merin Hunter Codman, Inc., announced Senior Associate of the firm’s Tenant Representation Division, Jeffrey Cebula, finalized a 7-year, 14,793-square-foot lease transaction on behalf of Dana Safety Supply, Inc. (DSS) at 750 McNab Road in Fort Lauderdale.
Dana Safety Supply, Inc. was founded in 2005 in Miami, Florida by a group of law enforcement and fleet professionals with a mission to provide the best equipment and expertise in the public safety market. Today the company has grown to 32 locations, serving as the nation’s largest supplier and upfitter of emergency vehicle equipment, tactical gear and apparel. Dana Safety Supply serves all facets of Federal, State, County and Municipal Public Safety Agencies (law enforcement and fire rescue), as well as public utilities, construction and security providing equipment and emergency vehicle lighting upfitting and service.
Having outgrown their current Pompano Beach location, Dana Safety Supply, Inc. chose 750 McNab Road in Fort Lauderdale with the help of Mr. Cebula. The new location will be primarily used for emergency vehicle upfitting as well as a sales office to support the company’s extensive customer list in Broward County and surrounding areas. The location will not be open to the public or have a retail facility.
“I have been representing tenants for over 30 years. There’s nothing more satisfying than understanding my client’s specific needs and negotiating great rates in challenging markets. DSS had their sights set on Broward County, an industrial market that leads the state of Florida in consecutive quarterly demand growth and a county in which vacancies continue to trickle down despite over 600,000-square-foot of new inventory delivered over the first quarter of 2023. Despite those market challenges we were able to identify the right location for the right price at the right time.” stated Cebula.
David Russo, President and CEO of Dana Safety Supply stated, “Jeff took the time to fully understand our specific location needs, parking requirements, time frame, and budget. He quickly identified the location that fit requirements, negotiated a fair rate, and finalized the deal all within three weeks. We look forward to working with Jeff again on future national locations.”
