WATERTOWN, MA-A Watertown company that received a $2 million loan last month to double its staff now has a place to put its new employees. Exergen, a locally based maker of industrial and medical devices, has taken the title to 400 Pleasant St. in a sale that gave the company a renovated building and an additional 17,000 sf of expansion space.

Exergen was previously housed in about 20,000 sf at 51 Water St. here, but after adding 50 new employees to help step up production of its TemporalScanner thermometer, an infrared device used to measure a patient’s temperature, the company needed more space. It found just what it was looking for at 400 Pleasant St., a 37,522 sf one store research and manufacturing facility, John E. Butterworth, senior vice president with Meredith and Grew’s Boston office tells GlobeSt.com.

Terms of the sale were not disclosed but Butterworth said the building’s former owner, Controlled Delivery Systems, will remain a tenant for at least another month. Exergen plans to fully move into the facility by July 1, he says. Butterworth represented Exergen in the transaction and Jonathan M. Varholak, a partner at Richard Barry Joyce & Partners, represented, Control Delivery Systems. Inc.
