A company that sells lawn, garden and other outdoor tools is once again expanding in Bergen County, leasing more than 135,000 square feet at a South Hackensack industrial building.
Brokerage firm Chaus Realty represented the business, Snow Joe, in its recent commitment at 5 Empire Blvd. The company now occupies three-quarters of the 179,964-square-foot building, which is about three miles north of Route 3 and two miles east of Route 17.
Brian Scheuer completed the assignment for Chaus, while NAI James E. Hanson’s Ken Lundberg represented ownership in the 135,126-square-foot deal. According to the building flyer, the property has eight loading docks, 20-foot ceiling heights and 9,800 square feet of office space, along with parking for 85 cars.
The deal comes two and a half years after Snow Joe, which is based in nearby Carlstadt, leased 271,000 square feet at a newly built distribution center in Mahwah. The company was founded in 2004 and manufactures ecofriendly and affordable lawn and garden tools, along with battery-powered snow blowers and snow throwers.
Its website boasts a footprint that includes six locations, which also serve its line of Sun Joe products.
