A 119,786-square-foot lease was recently inked by HydroJug in an expansion at Business Depot Ogden in Ogden, UT. The firm is moving into a second class-A industrial building, bringing the company’s total square footage to 160,429 square feet.
Newmark’s Braxton Willie and Chris Falk represented the tenant in the transaction. The landlord, The Boyer Company, was self-represented.
“HydroJug has created an incredible culture both for its employees and clients,” said Willie. “The company has been able to maintain the same high-level experience for its customers while experiencing a 9,032 percent growth over the past three years. This modern facility is in a prime location and perfectly meets the company’s growth needs.”
HydroJug was founded by two brothers who created a simple reusable half gallon water jug that has transitioned into a more sophisticated design to include straws and insulated sleeves/carriers in a variety of colors and styles.
“This is our fourth expansion in four years,” said Hayden Wadsworth, founder and CEO of HydroJug. “This new expansion will allow us to better our customer experience through more efficient packaging and shipping times.”
