Ranjani Saigal

Driven by a vision to bring entrepreneurship back to areas of Methuen and Lawrence, Jitender Makkar, purchased the old Malden Mills property and is working to transform it in to a industrial hub for all generations.  They held an event to celebrate the one-year anniversary of their acquisition of the space on Dec. 14, 2018. 

IndusPAD is a 596,181 SF high-end class “A” manufacturing facility located in Lawrence, MA. Polartec, a world leader in synthetic fabrics, originally constructed this in 1996. This Property is comprised of approximately 15% office space and 85% manufacturing and warehouse space and provides the flexibility to be re-configured to suit a variety of different uses and needs. The facility is divided into two buildings. The main building is 494,000 SF and second building is 65,000 SF. 

The plant is ideally located along State Road and connects to highway 213 to the North and sits within a mile of Freeway 93 and 495. This property serves as the primary Industrial HUB destination for both local workforces and over 474,234 population within 10 miles and 2,584,967 population within 25 miles.

In a short time of just a year, IndusPAD has managed to attract the attention of different companies dedicated to manufacturing. They hosted the Advanced Manufacturing Symposium with over 70+ manufacturers to discuss how to build a strong ecosystem in the supply chain link culture and ensure manufacturing can grow and stay here in the State and not be outsourced.

They already have 15 tenants: Mercedes Baseball Academy, Aberthaw Construction, Spicket River Brewery, Delicius, Fishback and Moore, Sleep Number, Windover, Chemco, GEM Group, Dileo Studios, Merrimack Valley Artist in Residency, Import Evolution, SLS, Columbia Gas amongst others. They also have a large list of collaborators including GreenTown Labs, EforAll, Lawrence Partnership, Merrimack Valley Chamber of Commerce, Salem State University Small Business Enterprise Center, City of Lawrence, City of Methuen, City of Somerville and Northeast Advanced Manufacturing Center.

Many leading members of the community including Joseph Bevilacqua,
Merrimack Valley Chamber of Commerce President and CEO,  State Representative Diana DiZoglio, James Jajuga, Mayor of Methuen, Congress-woman elect Lori Trehan, and State Senator Kathaleen O’Connnor  were among those who attended the event and had special words of praise for Jitendra Makkar and his fiancé Purnima Dey who had worked hard to help bring entrepreneurship to Methuen. 

The kind and compassionate Makkar, opened the facility up to the people of the city who were affected by the gas explosions and converted it into a makeshift shelter.  

Makkar is committed to use the building to transform the economy of Methuen and Massachusetts. Lokvani wishes him the very best as he moves this forward.
