Motion Industries, a leading distributor of industrial maintenance, repair, and operation (MRO) replacement parts, has leased approximately 6,000 square feet of flex space in CenterPoint Commerce & Trade Park East, Jenkins Township, Luzerne County, Pennsylvania.

The company has opened its new branch in a Mericle Commercial Real Estate Services flex building at 163 CenterPoint Boulevard from Mericle Commercial Real Estate Services.

With annual sales of $4.6 billion, Motion Industries is a leading industrial parts distributor of bearings, mechanical power transmissions, electrical and industrial automation, hydraulic and industrial hoses, hydraulic and pneumatic components, industrial products, safety products, and material handling equipment.

Headquartered in Birmingham, Alabama, Motion Industries has more than 550 operations including 15 distribution centers throughout North America and serves more than 150,000 customers from the food and beverage, pulp and paper, iron and steel, chemical, mining and aggregate, petrochemical, automotive, wood and lumber, and pharmaceutical industries.

Mericle President Robert Mericle said Motion Industries is the 40th tenant in CenterPoint. “Motion Industries has been an industry leader for 70 years,” Mericle said. “Every time a company of this caliber chooses Northeastern Pennsylvania, our position as one of the leading business locations on the I-81 Corridor gets even stronger.”

Mericle thanked Griff Keefer of Hinerfeld Commercial Real Estate of Scranton for helping to coordinate the real estate transaction.

Founded by Robert K. Mericle, Mericle Construction Inc. self-performs virtually all aspects of development and construction, using its own in-house personnel, Mericle Construction is better able to control costs and fast track delivery schedules to meet its clients’ needs. It fashions itself as a throwback to the “master builder” of old when experienced craftsmen self-performed all aspects of the construction process.
