CINCINNATI - Progress Supply Inc. moved its corporate offices to 1201 Harrison Ave. in Cincinnati. The company purchased a two-story, 8,500-square-foot building formerly owned by Fifth Third Bank.

“Our former location was inadequate for our needs. Despite stagnant sales due to the recession, we knew we needed to plan for the future once the downturn ends,” said Mark Faessler, president and CEO of Progress Supply. “Moving our corporate office people made sense from a productivity standpoint as well. We wanted a first-class office facility for our customers and our staff, so we made a significant investment for the future.”

In addition to housing corporate staff personnel, the new office also has a large training room on the second floor. The company has also installed a new digital telephone system throughout all its locations.
