WESTCHESTER – Follett Corporation, which sells educational materials to schools and libraries, signed an 11-year lease last week to occupy the 160,000-square-foot tower at Three Westbrook Corporate Center.

The move, which will bring 750 employees to the Westchester office, is the largest suburban office lease this year. Follett is consolidating its three current offices in Oakbrook, River Grove and Westmont.

"We're very excited to have them here," Westchester Village Manager Janet Matthys said. "You bring that many people into town, it's always a boom."

The company generates more than $2.7 billion in annual sales.
