Cumberland, Gulf Oil Combine HQ

Commercial real estate firm DTZ FHO Partners said it has helped Cumberland Farms and Gulf Oil LP secure new combined office space in Framingham, Mass.

Cumberland Farms is currently located in Canton, Mass., while Gulf Oil is currently headquartered in Newton, Mass. The two companies will combine corporate finance, legal and human resources operations at a single location, with about 400 employees relocating to the new Framingham office in May this year.

The new address is 100 Crossing Boulevard.

“We were looking for a property that would fit our open working environment and culture and allow us to have a viable, central location for all of our Cumberland Farm and Gulf Oil employees,” said Joseph Petrowski, CEO of Cumberland Farms. “Our workforce has been key to our growth, and it was important to remain in a central location to ensure satisfaction, while allowing us an advantage in recruiting and retaining employees. We are pleased with the work conducted by DTZ FHO Partners in assisting us with securing the location.”

The new combined headquarters will be located in a three-story building located at the Route 9 and Interstate 90 Interchange off Exit 12 on the Massachusetts Turnpike.

The new site is part of the 9/90 Corporate Center Park that offers high standards in a suburban setting, according to DTZ FHO Partners. The Corporate Center Park features a Marriott Residence Inn, foodservice, on-site management and other amenities. Additional corporations in the Park include Staples, Computer Associates, NMS Communications, Capital One and Genzyme.

The DTZ FHO Partners team, working on behalf of Cumberland Farms and Gulf Oil, included partners Tom Kent and Sean Teague, as well as Vice President Eric Foster.
