To accommodate its recent growth, a local custom electronics manufacturer has taken occupancy in a high-end, build-to-suit facility that is three times its current location.

NAI Horizon Senior Vice President Rick Foss represented the buyer in the $3.54 million purchase of a 35,100-square-foot manufacturing building at 150 E. Chilton Dr. in Chandler, Ariz. Tempe-based 7Chilton LLC of Tempe, Ariz., purchased the contracted building from Tempe-based Sun State Builders.

First Electronics Inc. (FEI) is a woman-owned business that manufactures custom electronics. It has been in business for more than 30 years and employs 80 workers. It is moving from a 14,000-square-foot facility in Tempe to its new location.

“The new building is triple the size of the current facility to handle the tremendous growth First Electronics has experienced over the past few years and accommodate its future growth,” Foss said.

FEI specializes in the assembly of printed circuit board, cable and wire harnesses, and electromechanical box builds. Services include automated and manual insertion of surface mount and through-hole components. FEI serves industrial, automotive, healthcare/medical, aerospace and telecommunication clients.

Sun State Builders was the design builder.
