Data center destruction business triples footprint with new South Hackensack lease

A data center destruction and logistics firm has signed a lease at an industrial property in South Hackensack, according to real estate firm NAI James E. Hanson.

Guardian Data Destruction, an onsite, single-source solution for data center decommissioning, signed for 27,177 square feet at 30 Wesley St., NAI Hanson said in a news release.

The team of Scott Perkins, Andrew Somple, Chris Todd, Greg James and Justin Allessio represented the landlord, CPT NJ 30 Wesley LLC, in the transaction.

“Although South Hackensack is among Bergen County’s smallest municipalities, its wide range of industrial buildings and proximity to New York City make it stand out as a premier industrial destination in the region,” Perkins said in a prepared statement.

Guardian Data Destruction is moving from a smaller space in South Hackensack, thanks to its rapid growth, NAI Hanson said. The new space triples the company’s footprint, it added.

“Locating and securing the perfect property became an easy and seamless process with the assistance of our broker, Andrew Somple,” Guardian Data Destruction founder and President Glenn Laga said in a statement. “Working with NAI, we found a bigger and centrally located office and warehouse space that offered a custom buildout. And negotiating the lease was not a battle.”

The building totals 246,000 square feet and includes two tailgates and a drive-in.
