Wagner SprayTech sells 62,368-SF warehouse/distribution facility to J World Sports

ISELIN, N.J., June 11, 2015 — JLL recently completed the sale of the Class A, 62,368-square-foot building at 107 Bauer Drive in Oakland, N.J., for Wagner SprayTech Corp., a Minneapolis-based company that manufactures advanced paint applicators. J World Sports Inc., an international backpack and luggage retailer, acquired the warehouse and distribution facility for an undisclosed amount.

The seller, Wagner SprayTech, was represented by Howard Weinberg, executive vice president, and Michael Palmeri, associate, both with JLL. The buyer was represented by Jame Yi with Kingstone Realty.

“J World Sports was looking for more space for its thriving business,” said Weinberg. “Located within Oakland-McBride Technical Park, 107 Bauer Drive offered the backpack and luggage retailer with the expansion space it required in a facility that more than met its needs.”

The facility was constructed in 1976 and features 18- to 20-foot ceiling heights, three loading docks and one drive-in door, and 88 parking spaces.

The property is located on 3.06 acres at the intersection of Bauer Drive and Thornton Road and is part of the 200-acre Oakland-McBride Technical Park. It lies within close proximity to Route 208 and Route 287.
