Profile: Labthink International, Inc. is a global enterprise that provides professional quality control solutions for packaging materials and products. Headquartered In China, Labthink is a privately held company with more than 50 international distributors and over 30 international service providers. They contacted us to help them find their first location in the U.S. for administration, sales and testing operations.
Solution: Finding the right space was the easy part, introducing them to the real estate process, legal issues and customs of doing business in the U.S., was the exciting part. The founders needed space close to the city, with good public transportation and close proximity to the airport and the image that would reflect their company and future. The principals were only in town for a few days and needed to secure space before going back to China. After three days of touring space options, and intense negotiating sessions, they returned to China with a lease commitment on new space for their U.S. headquarters with Landlords that understood their mission and needs.
“We came to Boston from a foreign country to establish our very first presence in the United States. Albeit the culture difference and language barrier, The Stevens Group were able to capture precisely what we wanted and needed and negotiated on our behalf. With their depth of knowledge of the commercial real estate market, they found us the perfect space. And that was only the beginning of what they did for us. They helped and supported us with every aspect of our start-up operations relying on their breadth of network and business expertise. The Stevens Group have been, and will continue to be, our lifetime business partner.”
