Newmark Lists Iowa Assembly Plant Near Mississippi River

Newmark is marketing a 365,640-square-foot manufacturing and assembly asset for sale or lease at 510 E. Agency Rd. in West Burlington, IA, near the Mississippi River.  Senior managing director Jeffrey Miller is representing the seller, ABB, Inc. Newmark’s Thomas Sonk maintains the national relationship with ABB. 

The heavy industrial-zoned, turnkey switchgear manufacturing facility features anchor equipment including a powder coat paint line, zinc plating line, fluidized bed/epoxy coat line, waste water treatment facility and Towveyor parts system. It can accommodate exterior operations or building expansions. 

“Centrally located between Chicago, St. Louis, Omaha and Minneapolis, this location is a highly sought-after industrial spoke for the upper Midwest,” said Miller. “This asset is an ideal fit for many users, with varying lines being left on-site. The opportunity to have a move-in-ready manufacturing space in a well-connected Midwestern hub with an experienced and highly productive workforce are major strengths of this offering.”
