Tri-City, Inc. Changes Name To Honor Founder

After 55 years in business, Tri-City Inc. has officially changed its name to C.F. Smith Property Group. The move was made to honor its late founder and patriarch, Claude Felton Smith, Jr.

The company’s legacy dates back to the 1940’s when Claude Felton Smith, Jr. began his passionate entrepreneurial pursuits that started with farming, evolved into manufacturing, and eventually led him to real estate where he made his mark as a pioneer in the industry. Claude had a knack for being ahead of the curve as it related to locating property, identify growth industries, and was well known as an expert financier.

Claude Smith believed in a long-term, conservative approach to growing the Tri-City portfolio. Over 5 decades, he became one of the region’s most prolific real estate developers, and commercial property owners. Today, the second and third generations of Claude Smith’s family are continuing to build on the solid foundation he established. The company’s diverse portfolio stretches across 23 states and it has completed projects in excess of 10 million square feet of retail, medical, office, and industrial, and developed over 9,000 acres in 3 residential and golf resort communities.
