Solar energy company expands in Metuchen, taking extra 18K sq.ft.

Pro Custom Solar LLC, which custom-designs residential and commercial solar energy systems under the brand “Momentum Solar,” is expanding its space in Metuchen, according to Colliers International Group Inc.

The real estate services firm said in a news release Friday that its Woodbridge office handled the lease expansion, which is growing Pro Custom Solar’s 35,000 square feet at 325 High St. by an additional 18,000 square feet.

“This is an expansion of a prior transaction with Pro Custom Solar, which initially leased 35,000 square feet of office and warehouse at 325 High St. a year ago,” Colliers’ Michael G. Markey said in a prepared statement.

Markey led the Colliers team, which included Jon Tesser and Mike Tesser, in representing the landlord. Colliers’ Doug Twyman represented the tenant.

“This company has a high headcount of employees, and they were having difficulty finding a building with enough parking,” Markey said. “The additional 18,000 square feet of office space will help them meet the demands of their growth.”
