LG Electronics has opened a 410,300-square-foot distribution center in East Windsor, bringing an expected 50 new jobs to the township, according to a recent news release.
The consumer electronics company and township officials gathered at the Gateway Twin Rivers building at 159 Milford Road to cut the ribbon on the newly built property, which will handle home appliances for the North American unit of the global corporation.
“East Windsor is excited to welcome global giant LG Electronics, and the size and scope of this modern Class A facility marks a significant investment and exhibits strong confidence in the attractiveness and economic vitality of East Windsor for business,” Mayor Janice S. Mironov said in a prepared statement. “This project will generate substantial local tax dollars and new jobs for our area, as well as new patrons for our many stores and restaurants.”
LG is the sole occupant of the Class A distribution and warehouse facility, which sits on 28 acres. Construction began in October 2016. LG will deliver appliances to dealers from the warehouse, and said the location allows the company to better serve East Coast customers.
“East Windsor is an attractive place to do business,” Paul Heffernan, LG Electronics USA’s vice president of supply chain, said in a statement. “Mayor Mironov and township officials are very cooperative and responsive to the needs of the business community. In East Windsor, we have a great facility in a great location, centrally located between New York and (Philadelphia).”
The building is owned by Deutsche Asset Management and was developed by Trammell Crow Co.
CBRE arranged the lease, with the brokerage team of Mindy Lissner, William Waxman, Steven Beyda, Dan McGovern, Robert Pine, Kevin Dudley and David Gheriani exclusively representing Deutsche Asset Management. The JLL brokerage team of Melissa Holland and Brian Golden represented LG.
