Carrier Enterprise leases 78K sq. ft. in Piscataway

Carrier Enterprise, a leading heating, ventilation and air conditioning distributor, leased a newly constructed 78,000-square-foot industrial building in Piscataway, according to a Thursday announcement from Levin Management Corp. Carrier Enterprise is taking occupancy this month in an expansion move.

Located at 30 Duke Road, the newly constructed Class A facility is part of Rutgers Industrial Center.

LMC serves as asset manager for Rutgers Industrial Center. The North Plainfield-based commercial real estate services firm also served as construction and development manager for 30 Duke Road, the second new building launched on spec and leased prior to completion at the property in the past year.

Chuck Fern, Jason Barton and Jack Winge of Cushman & Wakefield served as landlord brokers in negotiating the long-term transaction; the firm’s Dan Johnsen represented the tenant.

“The move to 30 Duke Road gives Carrier Enterprise a modern, move-in ready warehouse space with design features and amenities that support its growing business,” LMC’s Paul Tavaglione, executive vice president/chief financial officer, said. “The building’s location — in one of the Garden State’s most sought-after markets for small and midsize distribution requirements — was an added benefit for this tenant.”

“We are absolutely thrilled to be relocating to this new building,” Evan Gilbert, president for Carrier Enterprise’s Northeast Region, said. “The amount of flexibility, productivity and efficiency gains this new location unlocks for us will greatly benefit our customers and overall operational performance.”

Rutgers Industrial Center includes seven buildings totaling approximately 650,000 square feet. In early 2023, Levin Management completed the property’s other recent addition, 101 Circle Drive N., which is leased to electronics manufacturer RCF USA.

Rutgers Industrial Center is well located just one-half mile off Exit 8 of Interstate 287, five miles from Exit 10 of the New Jersey Turnpike and minutes away from the NS Independent Bulk Transfer Terminal-Middlesex-NJ. Newark Liberty International Airport and New York/New Jersey seaports are nearby.
