Heritage Favors Kluber Lubrication Expansion Plans

The Londonderry Heritage Commission will recommend an expansion of Kluber Lubrication’s facility on Industrial Drive.

At its July 28 meeting, the Commission heard from Tucker McCarthy, an engineer with T.F. Moran, who is representing Freudenberg Real Estate, the German parent company of Kluber.

McCarthy told the Commission the project is actually in three phases, but he and the owners hoped to have all three approved by the Planning Board.

The first phase, McCarthy said, is expanding the parking lot and pond. The second phase is a full build-out of the parking lot, and the third is redoing the entrance and adding an office area with a second floor. The addition will be 3,500 square feet, with 1,750 square feet per floor.

The ultimate, long-term plan is to expand the warehouse, McCarthy said, but that is not in these phases.

Heritage Chair Martin Srugis asked about stone walls, and McCarthy said there were none on the Kluber property.

Part of Phase II is to add a truck access for deliveries, McCarthy said. The company currently shares a driveway with Milton CAT.

There will be no change to the signage, McCarthy said.

The plan was scheduled to go to the Planning Board Wednesday, Aug. 3, after Londonderry Times press time, and the Commission agreed by consensus to recommend the plan.
