NORTHBOROUGH – The future home of R.J. Devereaux on Bartlett Street has been purchased by the company for nearly $2 million.

Real estate agency Kelleher & Sadowsky announced the sale of 200 Bartlett Street to R.J. Devereaux.

R.J. Devereaux installs natural gas lines for National Grid and Eversource. During past hearings before the Planning Board, staff members said they planned to use this Bartlett Street property as a “support system” for Eversource crews.

According to the press release, the seller – Bartlett Street Realty Trust – had owned the property since 1992.

“With a well-trained professional staff, R.J. Devereaux Corp. provides an extensive range of serviced including initial communication with customers, scheduling and permitting, damage prevention and mark-outs, installation of plastic and steel mains and services of all sizes and pressures, pipe-fitting and re-lights and both same-day and finish paving,” the release said.

The plans and special permits for the project were approved by the Planning Board this spring, and the Zoning Board of Appeals granted a use variance for an automotive repair use on the property.

The site is 6.7 acres and is currently the home of Lamy Automotive, which R.J. Devereaux officials have said will continue to operate.

The company said that they planned to rehabilitate two existing buildings on the site. One of the buildings will be used as an administrative building that will house offices and be used for training, ranging from education on first aid to classes on how to operate certain tools.

The second building will be used to maintain R.J. Devereaux’s equipment.
