NORTHFIELD — In a move designed to more than double its existing workspace, J.P. Carter Electric has leased 1,700-plus square feet of warehouse space in a Northfield facility.
The four-bay facility will allow J.P. Carter to meet the higher demand for electrical services in the commercial, residential and industrial markets in which they operate. Located at 55 Park Street, the warehouse offers a comprehensive list of what owner Josh Carter was looking for to expand his business.
"In order to meet the growing demand for our electrical services, J.P. Electric required a clean space in an optimal location with a layout that included plenty of parking. Our fleet of eight service vehicles, all with plenty of on-board supplies, required nothing less. Weeks Commercial understood my requirements and showed me just the right spot. This is the ideal location from which to serve our customers - we can't wait to get in to the new space!"
The Northfield facility was leased by Weeks Commercial, the largest commercial and industrial real estate brokerage firm from the Lakes Region to the north country.
Property owner Katie Wilson of Wapiti Development, LLC, expressed her satisfaction with the transaction. "I couldn't be happier that the space is being used by a rapidly growing business in the Lakes Region. The warehouse is an ideal location for a trade such as this. Weeks Associate married the right client with the right property. I look forward to a long relationship with both J.P. Carter Electric and Weeks Associates."
