Ferguson will construct a 460,000-sq.-ft. distribution center in the Fountain Flats Business Park in Coxsackie, about 100 miles north of New York City. The facility will create 95 new jobs. Groundbreaking was scheduled for mid-August with a proposed completion date of late summer 2015.
The company will lease 450,000 sq. ft. of warehouse space at the former Panasonic headquarters site in the Harmon Cove district of the Meadowlands. The regional shipping hub will serve customers within a 100-mile radius seeking same-day or next-day delivery of Ferguson products. The facility also will include a Ferguson counter—
a one-stop shop for professional contractors to purchase tools, plumbing products, parts and accessories. Renovations currently are underway with an anticipated open date of the first quarter of 2015.
In other Ferguson news, the company renewed its community partnerships with An Achievable Dream and the Colonial Williamsburg Foundation, emphasizing its focus on education in Hampton Roads, Va. Over the next decade the company will donate more than $1 million to An Achievable Dream, a unique public/private partnership that operates two schools serving disadvantaged youth in the region. In addition, Ferguson once again will fund educational field trips to Colonial Williamsburg for local fourth graders this academic year.
Also, more than 400 Ferguson locations participated in the company’s annual Feed the Need campaign, collecting food, supplies and monetary donations for more than 150 nonprofit organizations throughout the U.S., including animal shelters, food banks, homeless shelters and youth-development programs.
