Shepherd Self Storage Set for Growth in 2015

February 2015: The locally owned and operated Shepherd Self Storage of Boardman rounded out the 2014 year on a high note. With the help of local advertising, social media and the hosting of several events, Shepherd finished out the year at 75% occupancy within its climate-controlled storage units.

The 30,000 square feet of vehicle storage, which is also climate controlled, topped out at 100% occupancy for the season.

“We are pleased with how 2014 came to a close at Shepherd,” partner Joe Sylvester, Jr. commented. “We continue to receive referrals and excellent feedback from our Tenants.”

Joe Jr. also added that in mid-2014, his company the Joseph Sylvester Construction Co., Inc., helped the Shepherd facility complete the addition of 65 new climate controlled units.

“Our units range from 5x5 to 10x25,” he added, “Although some units sizes are more popular than others. With the addition of these units, we’re able to offer more of those desired sizes to our customers.”

The Shepherd partners were also happy to see the long-standing, reputable business of Handel’s Homemade Ice Cream purchase the available ½ acre lot on South Ave. to construct its new location.

In addition, Shepherd was able to fill its last remaining Retail unit, located in the front of its 108,000 square foot building next to the office. The Balloon Dr. relocated to the facility to join the Cleland Bros Penske Truck Rental company, located in the retail suite next door.

“Although 2014 was a great year, we expect 2015 to surpass it.” says Sylvester. He added that they’re looking forward to hosting several more events such as the Armstrong Street Scene Car & Bike Show, as well as the Mike Fox Benefit Car Show. The Shepherd partners are also working with several potential clients looking at leasing the existing interior available space.

Sylvester concluded, “If it all works out and our local market continues to grow, we could have a full house here at Shepherd Self Storage!”

Business Facilities Magazine Highlights Valley

September 2014 - The Business Facilities Magazine targeted at corporate site selectors, highlighted the Youngstown-Warren metropolitan area in its 2014 Metro Rankings Report. The magazine ranked the area first in its Exports Growth Leaders Top 10, fifth in Export Recovery Leaders and ninth in the Lowest Cost of Living. The publication also cited Youngstown and Pittsburgh among four National Manufacturing Innovation Leaders regions in the nation for National Additive Manufacturing Innovation Institute, now known as America Makes, in Youngstown.

The August 7 lead article announcing its Metro and Global rankings heralded the area with the headline "Youngstown OH; Exports Engine".

The article noted, "While the appearance of exports behemoths like New Orleans and Houston in the top 10 is not surprising, some may raise their eyebrows when they see Youngstown, Ohio at the top of the chart and Toledo, Ohio in the top 10. Well, all of the economic obituaries written about the Rust Belt during the Great Recession were totally off base: manufactured goods produced in the Youngstown metropolitan area are being shipped around the globe."

The magazine cited the Brookings Institution study that ranked Youngstown No.1 in the nation for export growth from 2009 to 2012 and sixth in the "export intensity" of its economy. In the Lowest Cost of Living rankings, Youngstown-Warren was the only mid-west metro area to make the list.

Rankings such as in Business Facilities "further solidify the fact that there are great things going on in the valley," remarked Sarah Boyarko, Vice President for Economic Development with the Youngstown/Warren Regional Chamber.

"As a region, we continue to be recognized for all of the hard work that's been done collectively to ensure our economic recovery," she continued. Additionally, "the Regional Chamber works hard to share these rankings throughout the nation and beyond, so companies and private investors know who we are and what we do, and they should be here, too," she said.

BOARDMAN – A Mass of Christian Burial will be celebrated 11 a.m. on Friday, Aug. 8, 2014, at St. Charles Borromeo Church, with the Rev. Philip Rogers officiating, for Joseph J. Sylvester Sr., 85, who passed away peacefully the morning of Aug. 4, at Hospice House, with his family by his side.

Joe was born April 3, 1929, in Youngstown, the son of Carl and Anna (Burce) Silvestri.

 Joe was a 1948 graduate of East High School and served with the U.S. Army Band during the Korean Conflict. He was employed as a driver with the Renner Brewery Company until 1956.

Joe was well-known to many as a prominent residential and commercial builder and developer. His construction career began in 1956, when he partnered with his friend, Nick Jeswald, to form Jeswald and Sylvester Construction, building homes for about 10 years.

He then ventured out on his own and relocated to Boardman in 1969. He constructed his first commercial office building on West Boulevard, near 224 in Boardman. It is at this location that the Joseph Sylvester Construction Company still remains today. Following a trip to Florida in 1981, he became known in the area as the “brainchild” behind developing the very first residential condominium community. This successful venture led him to broaden the condominium communities throughout the Boardman and Canfield areas. Joe’s labor of love wasn’t complete. He then expanded into developing office and business executive parks, medical complexes, nursing homes, restaurants, retail plazas, industrial parks, warehousing and self-storage facilities.

Joe was a faithful member of St. Charles Parish. He also was a member of the Mahoning Valley Home Builders Association, serving as president in 1970.

In 2009, he was honored as one of the first inductees into the HBA Hall of Fame. Joe was a member of the National Association of Home Builders for over 50 years, where he gained status of the Life Spike Club. As a member of the Boardman Civic Association, he was honored with the Outstanding Remodeled Construction and Outstanding New Construction awards for his work building places such as, Caffè Capri and the Surgery Center at Southwoods, among many others.

In 2002, he was honored again by the Boardman Civic Association with the Community Service Award, recognizing his involvement in many community projects by donating his time and talents in local projects such as, Boardman Park, the Field of Dreams, and St. Charles Church.

HBA_obit_Joe_Sr.jpgJoe was also a local, professional musician for over 30 years. Besides his love of work and music, he enjoyed playing golf, bowling, and bocce. He loved family gatherings and spending time with his friends.

Joe will be remembered lovingly by his wife of 62 years, Anna Marie (Rasile) Sylvester, whom he married Feb. 8, 1952; his son and daughter-in-law, Joseph J. Jr. and Kathy Sylvester of Boardman; his two grandchildren, Joey Sylvester of Canfield and Krysta (Jeff) Sylvester-Peterson of Boardman, who he adored and took great pleasure in following their sporting events and professional endeavors; as well as his several loving nieces and nephews. Besides his parents, Joe was preceded in death by his three brothers, Fred, Frank, and Nick.

Friends may call on Friday, Aug. 8, 2014, from 9 a.m. until time of the Mass at St. Charles Church. Interment will take place at Calvary Cemetery. In lieu of flowers, the family will respectfully accept any monetary contributions to be distributed in Joe’s name between the Hospice House and St. Charles Church.

The family would like to extend their heartfelt gratitude to the entire staff and aides at Hospice House and Shepherd of the Valley in Boardman for all the special care and compassion shown to Joe during his time there.

The Rossi Brothers & Lellio Funeral Home in Boardman have been bestowed the honor and privilege of handling the funeral arrangements for Joe. Family and friends may visit the Book of Memories at www.rossifunerals.com to view this tribute and send condolences to Joe’s family. - See more at: http://www.vindy.com/news/tributes/2014/aug/06/joseph-j-sylvester-s/guestbook/#sthash.Hes1ZJsi.dpuf

 

Again, we would like to thank all our friends & family for the outpouring of support during this time and the HBA for sharing the beautiful article (below) with us. Joe Sr. will be missed - but his legacy will live on!

Trendway in the News!

June 2014 - Trendway's quality products were once again featured in the news, this time by Facilities Management. Check out our Trendway Office Furniture pages for more information or stop into our corporate office in Boardman, Ohio to see our show room!

Trendway Seating Introductions Offer Quality Design, Comfort, Value and the Fun Factor

By This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it., June 9, 2014—Holland, Michigan-based furniture and architectural products company Trendway Corporation is introducing three new seating offerings in June: Zego, Quello, and Feek Shimoda Shapes. The company's descriptions are below.

Zego

As Trendway's newest seating addition, Zego is designed to offer the best in design, comfort, quality and value in a flip/nest chair. The simple, timeless aesthetic complements a wide range of interior designs. The breathable, premium mesh back provides a responsive flexing action to enhance comfort—especially during long meetings or training sessions. Light and mobile, Zego zips into place when needed, then nests snugly when not in use for compact, space-saving storage.


Zego offers quality design, comfort and value in a flip/nest chair.

Attention to detail is evident in the beautiful fit and finish, and in touches like the seat's smooth underside that maintains the clean, sleek look of the chair when nested for storage. The chair comes standard with nylon casters, full armrests and a fully upholstered seat. It is offered in a selection of upholstery options and two frame colors.

Quello is scaled to provide comfort for a wide range of body types, meets ANSI/BIFMA standards, and offers a generous seat pan.

Quello

Trendway's new Quello Bar Stool makes a bold statement—quietly. Slender chrome legs support a slim, gracefully curved seat. The simple, beautifully proportioned silhouette can bring elegance to any setting. The Beech plywood seat is molded in gentle curves designed to support the human body. Quello is scaled to provide comfort for a wide range of body types, meets ANSI/BIFMA standards, and offers a generous seat pan. The well-placed aluminum foot rest adds to user comfort. With standard glides, Quello slides easily from the background to center stage. The seat is offered in a selection of Red or White laminate top or natural Beech with a clear lacquer finish.

Feek Shimoda Shapes

The Feek Shimoda Shapes bring sophistication to coated foam design while celebrating the fun factor.
 
 

Contract Magazine's 2013 Designer of the Year Joey Shimoda partnered with Trendway Corporation to introduce an exclusive new line of furniture that brings sophistication to coated foam design while celebrating the fun factor. The partnership explores the use of new technologies like three-dimensional (3D) printing that give designers increasing control and expanded freedom to create custom shapes and designs, and combines it with the speed and flexibility Feek-coated foam brings to that process.

The Shimoda Design team, including Susan Chang, Mindy King, Gabriel Santos and Christopher Carlton, learned about the "extruded" type of manufacturing process and experimented with shapes, textures and custom colors while incorporating a sense of fun, and designing for social collaboration. The designs embody the medium's inherently playful side while incorporating a thoughtful and intentional approach to the sculptural shapes' interaction with people and the space they inhabit. The first results of their creative journey will be on display in June: Phoebe the Wire Fox Terrier, Super Lounge, Low Lounge and Work Lounge (picnic basket)—a work surface as well as a seating surface.
