Rockefeller Group, along with joint venture partner PCCP, LLC, announced that Fujitsu General America Inc. has leased 155,000 s/f at Rockefeller Group Logistics Center in Piscataway, N.J.
Fujitsu General is consolidating and expanding its New Jersey distribution operations into this facility.
Fujitsu General is the third company to sign a lease at the project which brings the second building to full occupancy. Rockefeller Group is developing five buildings totaling 2.1-million-square-feet at the site.
Fujitsu General provides ductless cooling, heating systems, and VRF technology for residential and commercial use. They will distribute air conditioners, heat pumps and other products from the location to customers throughout the Northeast.
“Rockefeller Group is pleased that Fujitsu General has decided to join Humanscale and Best Buy at Rockefeller Group Logistics Center,” said Heath Abramsohn, Vice President and Regional Director for the New Jersey and Pennsylvania region. “With the second building now 100 percent occupied, we are currently working towards completing construction on the balance of the site.”
“In order to best serve our customers in the Northeast, we felt it was important to consolidate our operations in Middlesex County,” said Matt Peterson, President and COO, Fujitsu General. “Rockefeller Group Logistics Center provides us with a location that is not only close to the port of Elizabeth, but the facility we are moving to is state-of-the-art and it essentially doubles the capacity of our existing distribution center.”
“We are delighted that Fujitsu General has chosen Piscataway, a decision that enables this international company to more broadly flourish in what is becoming an epicenter of economic development in the tri-state region,” Piscataway Mayor Brian C. Wahler said. “We thank Fujitsu General for joining our Township and wish it much success.”
The Cushman & Wakefield team of Jules Nissim, Stan Danzig and Marc Petrella serves as the exclusive marketing and leasing agent for the development and represented Rockefeller Group and PCCP in the transaction, along with an in-house team led by Rockefeller Group’s Mr. Abramsohn.
Fujitsu General was represented by Bob Sager and Dave Blitt from Bussel Realty.
