Mitsubishi Electric expands into Woburn

6 Gill Street

WOBURN, MA – Mitsubishi Electric US, Inc., headquartered in Cypress, Calif., has expanded its northeastern presence to 6 Gill Street, a Cummings Properties-managed building in Woburn, MA.

The 4,500-square-foot facility will serve as office and warehouse space for the company’s growing elevator and escalator division.

“Our initial entry into the greater Boston area was to support two spiral escalators at a new high-end casino; we are the only manufacturer of this type of escalator,” said Mike Eden, eastern region director of the elevator and escalator division. “We have since secured several other prominent projects in the region, which called for a well-positioned office/warehouse facility.”

Cummings Properties leasing director Mike Truesdale worked directly with Mitsubishi Electric on the transaction. When the firm reached out to Cummings weeks later with an additional space requirement, Truesdale was able to add a neighboring suite to its lease.

“Cummings’ ability to rapidly accommodate expansion was a big draw for Mitsubishi Electric,” said Truesdale. “Having a large, diverse portfolio allows us to support our clients’ growth at any point in the lease term.”

Woburn’s central location was also attractive to Mitsubishi Electric, according to Eden.

“The close proximity to downtown Boston makes this space a good fit for us,” said Eden. “It’s ideal for our employees, and we also have many local vendors and suppliers in this area.”
