Despite the fact the New York City area is filled with buildings ranging from across its history the city that never sleeps looks set to see a boom in building work completed in the coming years; permits have been applied for by developers of various areas of New York, not just those in the central hub of Manhattan. Major office and manufacturing developments head the list of building applications submitted in June 2016, but a range of residential properties also look set to be completed.

One of the real estate companies looking to be at the head of the line for both the commercial and residential markets in New York is TOWN residential, which has developed an impressive team of individuals who will be looking to sell and rent the latest office and apartment buildings.

TOWN Residential is headed by Andrew Heiberger, who is one of the best known faces in the NYC apartment for rent scene; Heiberger has a long history of success as a real estate professional in New York City that includes his heading of different companies in the city. A number of the best known real estate professionals have also made their way to TOWN to create one of the most respected teams in the industry. Under the leadership of Heiberger up and coming real estate professionals have the opportunity to work at one of the top companies in New York if they show promise for the future.

One of the real estate developments that has excited the majority of professionals in New York is the Queens based tower construction that will see two towers built and connected by bridges reaching 27 stories in height. The Queens Plaza South project will be joined by the multi use project at Richards Street, Brooklyn, which will combine office, manufacturing and residential buildings in an environmentally friendly design.

Workville is a great place for people to try the co working environment, and there are Workville NYC offices that will suit any person with a business. Some businesses are so small that they need just a small amount of office space every now and then, and other businesses need a place they can go every day that is not going to cost too much or get in the way of their long term goals. These offices are shared by a lot of people, and they are set up so that everyone can get work done no matter how large or small their company is.

They have all the bathroom, kitchens and conference rooms that are needed, and they accommodate people who want to have a normal office environment without worrying about how they are going to pay for it. The rent and all the other things that go into a normal payment of Manhattan offices for rent are too much for a lot of people, but now they will be able to afford the place they want because they are using Workville NYC.

Everyone gets what they need, but no one overpays for the services that are required for their business regardless of its small size.

One of the most promising and influential families in Western Michigan is the DeVos family. The DeVos family are the proud owners and founders of Amway Corporation which started out in the basement of the family home and has moved up to become an internationally renowned company. Currently, at the head of this business is Dick DeVos who has worked tirelessly with the community in order to make improvements and improve the overall well being of the community. Recently in news, Mr. DeVos and his wife, Betsy, have ventured to start getting into the liquor business which has been a personal dream of Dick for quite sometime. 

Mr. DeVos’ license has recently been approved and has marked his entrance into the liquor business. The liquor to which Mr. DeVos will be involved in is located in a distillery that is owned by Walter Catton III. This distillery was opened in 2013 and has already expanded the distillery with the help of his investors to a 9,000 square-foot distillery. This new location even includes a tasting room that allows for 50 people to be in the room all at once. With the renovations almost complete, the owner and Dick DeVos are currently increasing the inventory with the upcoming Tulip Time Festival in mind.

Mr. DeVos decided to become a part of this endeavor as the distillery already distributes its product to more than 100 different locations. These locations include Michigan as well as Colorado and Illinois. This distillery has provided excellent quality liquor for any occasion whether it be for a restaurant or for a party. 

In addition to this, Mr. Catton has even added a kitchen to the new distillery in order to now add appetizers that will be paired with the cocktails provided. Mr. Catton and Mr. DeVos currently are working with both full-time as well as part-time staff to create whiskey, vodka, gin, as well as rum. This distillery is now working hard to add handcrafted wine as well as beer.

Mr. DeVos has been a well respected individual in his community and is a well known philanthropist. Mr. DeVos has donated millions of dollars to several organizations through his family foundation. One of his biggest passions that he is the most supportive of is the education initiative. Mr. DeVos believes that in order to support economic growth, it is not more jobs that is needed, but instead it is more education to create jobs. This and his passion for flight are what inspired him to create the West Michigan Aviation Academy, a charter high school for students interested in avionics.

Having started as an isolated mill is the outskirts of Sao Paulo Brazil, Eucatex has had a long journey to glory. It operated in small-scale in isolation until the early 1950s when its management decided to open gates for large scale fiberboard production. Currently, the company is recognized as a global market leader in the manufacture of laminate floors, wall partitions, hard boards, and paints. The company currently produces in four major factories across Brazil and exports to more than 37 other countries all over the world. However, one thing remains certain about Eucatex, its success has not been a smooth sail.

From then to now
One unique marketing strategy that Eucatex adopted while still a small factory was product differentiation; it remains one of the few industrial plants that only make its products using just the Eucalyptus trees in the world. This single factor makes its products unique and marketable across the globe and the cause of its soaring success. It also remains quite encouraging that the company does all these while taking care of the environment.

Its expansion journey has also been interesting; it started with a single production mill but currently operates four. The company also started with just fiber production but has now ventured to various other home improvement products including doors, wall partitions, panels, paints, and varnishes. What cannot escape a keen observer is that it has entirely transformed and archived much under the leadership of Flavio Maluf, the company’s current president.

About Flavio Maluf
Flavio is an established serial entrepreneur based in Brazil with many years of experience in business management and leadership. He has been working for the family company for over 27 years in which he instituted a myriad of changes that have seen the transformation of the company to a global leader. He is also the president of the grand food group.

Professionally, Flavio is a mechanical engineering graduate from FAAP. His interests in succeeding his father at Eucatex also made him further his education with a degree in administration from the University of New York. His education and experience are two fundamental pillars that his businesses expansion and domination of Brazilian markets have relied on.  Flavio is well known as a part of the financial community these days as well.  He’s relied upon for his guidance to new entrepreneurs.  But also for his commentary on education, and where we’re going from here.
