In a major Northern New Jersey office move, Securitas Security Services USA, Inc, a global knowledge leader in security, has executed an 82,092 square foot office lease to relocate its North American Headquarters to 9 Campus Drive in Parsippany, NJ.
The new office space will keep Securitas’ Eastern Operations Center in Morris County, and will house 225 employees on three full floors and a portion of the ground level at the four-story, 156,495-square-foot class A office property.
The company, which has been located in Parsippany since 1978, is currently situated at 2 Campus Drive and expects to relocate to the building in the second quarter of 2016.
A Savills Studley team of Senior Managing Directors Daniel M. Foley and Christopher B. Marx, along with Joseph Messina (formerly an executive managing director at Savills Studley) arranged the 15-year transaction for Securitas, while Mitchell Hersh, Diane Chayes and Brian Decillis represented the landlord, Mack-Cali Realty Corporation, in-house.
According to Mr. Foley, Securitas wanted to enhance their corporate image in a prestigious building, geographically appealing to their existing employees. “Securitas had clear goals to be in a first-class environment, and 9 Campus Drive was a perfect fit,” he said. “We were able to secure premier, class A space at favorable terms that met the company’s criteria.”
Mr. Marx added, “In addition to providing a superior corporate image, this relocation enables Securitas to leverage the current tenant market to secure lease flexibility and upgrade their facility.”
Located directly off I-287, the building at 9 Campus Drive features a recently-renovated lobby and common areas, as well as on-site amenities, such as a Grab-and Go Cafe and new Fitness Center.
Securitas has more than 640 local branchs and employs approximately 86,000 Security Officers throughout the U.S. The company operates in all 50 states with branch locations in over 200 cities.
