July 18, 2018

Essex and Essex Brownell have renewed their lease on a 282,550-square-foot warehouse property located at 3405 Meyer Road in Fort Wayne, Indiana. The lease renewal signals a long-term investment in this location as the property already holds facilities for Essex, a world leader in magnet wire product manufacturing, development and sales, and Essex Brownell, a North American distributor of a wide variety of industrial service and repair parts.

The building will also continue to be a home for Essex Active, a leading industrial material conversion and fabrication service offered by Essex Brownell that boasts multi-functional support with the latest converting technologies.

Steve Zacher and John Adams of The Zacher Company represented Indiana Acquisitions and Continental Hastings, the landlords, in the transaction. The 862,450-square-foot warehouse is part of the Coastal Commerce Center, and Essex and the landlords both plan to invest capital to upgrade the space.
