Essex Brownell Renews Its Lease At Edison (NJ) Distribution Center

February 23, 2021

Essex Brownell, a Division of Superior Essex and a leading North American distributor/fabricator of magnet wire, motors & drives, electrical insulation, tapes, repair parts, as well as shop and test equipment, has renewed the lease for its Northeast Distribution Center in Edison, NJ.

The lease is a five-year extension on a 60,000-square feet space that has been dedicated to inventory support for the region. The distribution center in the metro NY area, the birthplace of Brownell, will continue to house an expanding inventory line, covering all of Essex Brownell product families, including but not limited to flexible insulations, varnish & resins, motors, parts, equipment and lead & magnet wire.

The lease renewal signals a long-term investment in this location as well as Essex Brownell at large, according to Michael McIlwain, President of Essex Brownell and Hi-Wire.

“While the global pandemic continues, stability and reliability are two very important aspects of doing business,” McIlwain said. “Being able to send a very clear signal that Essex Brownell is both figuratively not going anywhere, but literally as well.

“This lease renewal announces to our customers, suppliers, and team members that Essex Brownell is committed to the Northeast & Mid-Atlantic regions and committed to sourcing globally, delivering locally.”
