SYLMAR, CA-A company that specializes in the manufacturing and distrbuition of automation devices has signed a $4.5-million lease for space here in the northern end of the San Fernando Valley.

The 10-year pact will provide Brooks Automation with 65,804 sf inside the Cascades Business Park. Greg Geraci and David Harding of CB Richard Ellis represented Brooks Automation in the transaction.
