The building was completed in 1991, according to Paul Loosmann, senior vice president and Pennsylvania market officer, located in ProLogis’ Harrisburg office. Kane replaces space that was earlier occupied by Maytag, which exited following a corporate consolidation, Loosmann says. Rosemont, IL-based EGS Electrical Group occupies the remaining 59,000 sf.

Loosmann tells GlobeSt.com that Kane, a third-party logistics supplier, is becoming a national player and has leased space in ProLogis properties elsewhere.
