The multi-year agreement has an aggregate rental in excess of $1 million, according to Peter O. Schultz Jr., senior leasing director for the East region of First Industrial. Paul Wierzel, senior leasing and marketing manager, who negotiated for the owner, says True Value is relocating its distribution operations to the Penn Drive facility from 6829 Ruppsville Rd. in Allentown.
