Eyeing expansion, Morris LED lighting company buys Watertown industrial facility

Costar 1012 Buckingham St., Watertown

An industrial lighting company based in Morris has purchased a former manufacturing plant in a nearby Litchfield County town.

WBCM LLC and Mark Zampini bought property at 1012 Buckingham St., from Prime Engineered Components Inc. for $2.7 million in a deal recorded May 20, according to town land records. 

Zampini owns i2Systems, an advanced LED lighting company that dates back 35 years and is headquartered in Morris.

i2Systems manufactures specialized lighting for industrial properties, large residential or corporate buildings, elevators, and mass transit vehicles, including boats, according to the company website. 

Company officials could not be reached for comment, but broker Ed Godin Jr., of Middlebury-based Godin Property Brokers, represented the buyer in the deal. 

Godin said i2Systems will likely use the new Watertown building for company expansion, production and warehousing, keeping the 64,000-square-foot headquarters at 355 Bantam Lake Road in Morris, which is owned by the Zampini Family LLC.

The Watertown site, built in 1982, features 37,400 square feet of light industrial warehousing space on 6.6 acres along Buckingham Street, which is a main stretch in town near other industrial sites. 

It’s the former home of Prime Engineering, which has consolidated with other plants throughout the U.S., Godin said.

The Watertown site was attractive, in part, due to its proximity to nearby Route 8, Godin said.
