PARSIPPANY — John Guest USA, Inc. has completed their move to 20 East Halsey Road. Employees, executive and local dignitaries celebrated with a ribbon cutting on Friday, September 28.
The plumbing and industrial products manufacturer relocated its operations to the Parsippany industrial/flex property from Fairfield, in an expansion play, according to Colliers International. The building consists of 60,600 square feet.
Colliers’ John Donnelly, based in the global commercial real estate services firm’s Parsippany office, represented John Guest USA in orchestrating the long-term lease. Thomas Consiglio and Scott Peck from Resource Realty served as brokers for property owner GTJ REIT.
According to Donnelly, John Guest USA’s growth in the plumbing market required an expanded space, driving the Northern New Jersey search for a new headquarters location. “The property at 20 East Halsey Road met these specifications beautifully, offering a large multi-purpose space, building signage and visibility from I-287. GTJ Management recently renovated the building – raising the roof, upgrading the power and sprinkler systems, and updating the landscaping program. That proactive move played a big part in securing John Guest USA’s commitment.”
Additionally, the property offers a generous, 15,000-square-foot office component, extra parking capacity and future building expansion potential. Donnelly noted that these features will enable his client to grow in place. John Guest, the manufacturer of push-fit fittings, valves, PEX pipe and LLDPE tubing completed their move recently.
