Newmark announces the 179,000-square-foot lease of a recently completed, state-of-the-art industrial property on behalf of Phelps Pet Products (“Phelps Pets”), a leading manufacturer of specialty dog treats, at 400 West Venture Drive in Janesville, Wisconsin. Newmark Senior Managing Directors Michael Prost and Sergio Chapa represented the tenant, Phelps Pets, in their lease of the Class A speculative industrial building. Newmark Global Corporate Services Director of Location Advisory, Global Strategy Carrie Zethmayr supported the transaction.
“Phelps Pets’ tremendous growth served as one of the primary motivators for their search in finding a new space,” said Prost. “This new production facility marks Phelps Pets’ first ‘paw-print’ in the Wisconsin market. The primely located, Class A spec industrial development was the perfect opportunity for our client, and we look forward to witnessing their continued success at the new facility.”
The brand-new, build-to-suit industrial building is functionally designed and equipped with high-bay LED lighting, 18 loading docks, 25 trailer parking stalls and 175 car parking spaces. The property is strategically located along the I-90/I-39 corridor in Janesville, providing convenient access to the Milwaukee and Chicago metropolitan areas.
“This state-of-the-art facility is in a great location and more than doubles the Phelps Pet treat-making production capacity while enabling the company to benefit from the highly-skilled local workforce,” stated Rick Ruffolo, CEO & President of Phelps Pet Products.
