gets first tenant
An office building in Forty Fort owned by Mericle Commercial Real Estate Services has landed its first tenant.
IMA Group, headquartered in Tarrytown, N.Y., with its main operations center in Albany, N.Y., has leased 3,259 square feet of space at 150 Welles St., where the company expects to create eight to 10 jobs. The company is opening several new offices in the Northeastern United States.
IMA Group provides medical, psychological and speech and language evaluations, and focuses on Social Security disability, employability, independent medical evaluations, and occupational health services. The company’s clients include local, state and federal agencies, as well as private insurers and corporations.
IMA Operations Manager Kathy Simons said the location is ideal, providing easy accessibility to clients.
IMA Group has more than 30 medical offices in New York, Connecticut, Ohio, Florida, Pennsylvania, and the District of Columbia. IMA Group’s President and CEO, Dr. David Pulver, is a board certified internist with more than 30 years of experience performing consultative evaluations for Social Security Disability.
Mericle Vice President Dan Walsh said Mericle’s design and construction team customized IMA’s space and completed renovations in 30 days.
“They’ve been able to give us exactly what we need with a very fast turnaround,” said IMA’s Pennsylvania Project Manager James Coseo.

new tablet line
Samsung’s new line of tablets will go on sale in the U.S. on Feb. 13.
Samsung Electronics Co. began taking orders for the devices on Tuesday. Announced at the International CES gadget show in Las Vegas last month, the new “Pro” tablets feature touch screens that are among the sharpest available.
Samsung is also making models with screens measuring 12.2 inches diagonally — larger than the main iPad and other full-size tablets. The larger display comes with the ability to show four apps on the same screen at once, compared with two for other Samsung devices. IPads and most Android tablets allow for only one at a time.
A 12.2-inch Note version of the tablet comes with a pen and starts at $750. A pen-less Tab version costs $100 less, but won’t be available until March. Samsung is also selling an 8.4-inch Tab version for $400 and a 10-inch Tab for $500. Both will be available this month.
All of the new tablets have displays with 2,560 pixels by 1,600 pixels. That matches the resolution on the full-size version of Amazon.com Inc.’s Kindle Fire HDX, but it is more than what iPads and Android rivals typically offer.
Samsung is expected to unveil a successor to its flagship Galaxy S4 phone soon, possibly later this month at the Mobile World Congress wireless show in Barcelona, Spain.
