Once the manufacturing site for Moll Industries Inc., thebuilding at 710 FM 306 originally was available for lease by JJMHoldings of Northern California after Moll moved out about a yearago with five years remaining on its lease. At the time, the rentwas being quoted at $4 per sf annually, triple net, for the1980s-era factory.

"We put in EH Systems as a sublease to Moll during the duediligence process," says Rob Namy, regional vice president ofacquisitions for the buyer. Namy says EH Systems has taken thespace for remainder of the lease term and included two five-yearrenewal options. EH Systems manufactures and distributes structuralinsulated panels for single-family homebuilders.
