Princeton’s wholesale electrical supply shop, known as Rexel STP,
closed at 811 State Road because of sky high rent, says Bob Ludwig,
a branch manager.
"Our lease expired and the landlord wanted Quakerbridge mall rates.
We can’t mark up 300 percent and then have a 50 percent sale —
we serve electricians, architects, engineers, and homeowners on a
wholesale basis," says Ludwig. "What makes us different from
Home Depot — you have a problem and your electrician would come
to us with the drawings and we would sell him the supplies. The people
in the Princeton area were reaping the rewards of getting our pricing."
The $26 billion company has its headquarters in Paris and its U.S.
headquarters in Dallas. "With all the mergers, soon there will
be only seven or eight big players," says Ludwig. He notes that
the company did not leave the area permanently. It is working with
Schultz Realty to find a new location, probably near Quakerbridge
Road, for a summer move-in. Meanwhile it will deliver to its Princeton

InterCure has moved from its offices at 214 Carnegie Center to Fort
Lee, but the former phone number still works. Erez Gavish, the company’s
founder and CEO, says the move was made because Fort Lee is closer
to his home in Manhattan, and also closer to the homes of a number
of his employees. Another reason for the relocation, he says, is that
"there are great deals" in office rents right now. "There’s
lots of empty space."
Intercure, with 10 employees in the United States and the same number
in Israel, develops and markets interactive, device-guided breathing
therapies, designed, among other things, to lower blood pressure.
Gavish, just back from Korea, where he signed deals with pharmaceutical
companies on behalf of InterCure, says his business is growing and
a new website (www.intercure.com) is to up and running within a week.
