Auburn, MA The F.W. Webb Co., a wholesale distributor of plumbing, heating, cooling and industrial products, purchased 33 Sword St., a 75,000 s/f facility situated on 3.04 acres for $4.45 million. David Skinner, David Stubblebine, and James Stubblebine from The Stubblebine Co. represented the seller in the transaction. The sale was an “off market” purchase.
The site was the former Imperial Distributors distribution center before Imperial relocated to its current location at 150 Blackstone River Rd. in Worcester, in a 325,000 s/f lease transaction also facilitated by The Stubblebine Co. in 2016.
F.W. Webb currently has a location at 43 Sword St. The company anticipates opening the new wholesale store on 33 Sword St. by August 31, and a retail kitchen, bath and lighting showroom by the end of the year. F.W. Webb will continue to operate out of 43 Sword St. until the new location is ready.
“Our business has grown and we are moving the location to a larger building to meet the needs of both our F.W. Webb wholesale customers and our retail Frank Webb Home customers,” said Bob Mucciarone, F.W. Webb COO. “We are excited to expand our presence in the greater Worcester area.”
