IPG has been an ideal partner for Lilac as we scaled our R&D and manufacturing operations in Oakland over the last few years. IPG was by our side when we leased our very first space with only 1,500 sf. As we grew, they helped us transition into our next 14,000 sf space and then into our current 100,000 sf facility. Beyond helping us to find new spaces, they also helped us with finding subtenants to cover the remaining term of our smaller spaces. The IPG team has been a pleasure to work and has worked closely with us to understand our needs at each stage.
