Corporate America Realty & Advisors Helps Clothing Distributor Sign Long-Term Industrial Lease in Hamilton
Corporate America Realty & Advisors announced Thursday that A&E Clothinga major processor of used clothing, recently signed a long-term industrial lease at 17 Thomas J. Rhodes Industrial Drive in Hamilton.
Situated on 8 acres of land in what is known as Hub 1, the 115,000 square foot building was developed by 17 Thomas J Rhodes Industrial Drive LLC, built by ARCO Design/Construction Inc. and completed in September with A&E Clothing transitioning to installation later that month.
A&E Clothing will be its sole industrial property tenant.
A&E Clothing is a privately owned family business that processes used clothing and exports it overseas as well as distribution in the United States. Additionally, she also owns a chain of retail thrift stores.
The site of the land (which involved an assembly of properties) and obtaining the tenant was exclusively negotiated by Howard Applebaum, president of Corporate America Realty & Advisors.
Since the company picks up its garments in New Jersey, New York, Pennsylvania, Delaware, Connecticut and Maryland, the asset’s location in Hamilton provided a strategic area with excellent regional logistics.
Once fully moved in, A&E Clothing will employ over 125 employees in its new facility.
