#b#Leases Signed#/b#

Cammeby’s International Group, a commercial real estate brokerage and property management agency based in Lakewood, recently re-signed two businesses to leases totaling more than 17,700 square feet at Hamilton Business Center, off Route 130.

Carpenter Emergency Lighting, a developer and manufacturer of emergency lighting products, has signed a 12,500-square-foot, two-year renewal at 12 South Gold Drive; and New Jersey Business Systems, a networking, communications, computer services, customer service, and support firm, signed a 5,260-square-foot renewal for a year and a half at 7C Marlen Drive.

Jeffrey Schron represented the landlord, while Steven Tolkach of Newmark Knight Frank’s Carnegie Center office represented the tenant.

According to Schron, the 285,000-square-foot Hamilton Business Center maintains a 93 percent occupancy rate. The two signings mark a staying-on for a pair of long-time tenants — Carpenter moved into the center in 2000 and NJBS in 1995. The center provides office, warehouse, and wholesale/retail space.
