Snow Joe® + Sun Joe®, a leading manufacturer of innovative, eco-friendly and affordable lawn and garden tools, recently leased a 271,000 sq. ft. Class A distribution center located at 100 Performance Drive in Mahwah, NJ, expanding its footprint in the aptly named Garden State where the company began in 2004. The new facility, which is part of a complex that includes Jaguar’s and Land Rover’s North American Headquarters, boasts 36-foot clear ceilings and can manage 25,000 pallet positions. This newly-leased space will not only help the Company more efficiently distribute its easy-to-use, eco-conscious, and affordable lawn and garden tools across the I-95 corridor to ensure on-time delivery of its product, but it will also substantially grow the number of jobs in New Jersey.
“We’re excited to expand our distribution footprint in Mahwah, New Jersey and we project more than 100 new jobs will be created in Mahwah to support this distribution center,” stated Joseph Cohen, CEO of Snow Joe®. “Strategically located in Northern NJ along Interstate-95, the Mahwah facility will facilitate faster distribution of our product, which is essential for our Company to operate efficiently, especially since there is often higher demand for our product during winter snowstorms and other weather-related emergencies.”
Mayor William “Bill” Laforet, the Mayor Township of Mahwah, added: “We are equally as excited to learn that Snow Joe®, a leader in the lawn and garden consumer market, has decided to name Mahwah as one of its primary distribution centers. Welcoming Snow Joe® into the Township helps to create new jobs and opportunities for our community, while simultaneously providing the Company with the logistical advantages that Mahwah has to offer.”
Furthermore, the newly-leased 271,000 sq. ft. distribution center in Mahwah adds another stake for Snow Joe® in the Garden State, which already includes a 120,000 sq. ft. eCommerce distribution center at 305 Veterans Blvd. and a 33,000 sq. ft building at 100 Triangle Blvd., both in Carlstadt, NJ.
“We’re energized by the Company’s economic growth and expansion into Mahwah, New Jersey,” continued Mr. Cohen. “We started out in 2004 in New Jersey, and we’re proud to call Jersey our home.”
Snow Joe was advised on this transaction by Brain Scheuer of Chaus Realty and Sitex Group was represented by NAI Hanson on this long-term lease.
“I’m proud that our state-of-the-art projects are meeting the needs of an expanding company, like Snow Joe®, and am happy to see that Snow Joe’s growth has translated to such a positive impact on the New Jersey economy,” said Mr. Milberg, Senior Partner of Sitex Group.
