By   /  

Empire Moulding & Millwork, a building products company based in Zeeland Michigan has agreed to lease a distribution center in New Hampshire.

Empire Moulding & Millwork, a Novo Building Products company based in Zeeland, announced that it has signed a lease for a 217,000-square-foot facility in Amherst, New Hampshire, to house more than 2,500 SKUs of product to support the needs of independent lumber yards, millwork specialty shops, stair parts providers, door shops, professional dealers, and home centers throughout New England.

The facility, which will be located at 1 Bon Terrain Drive in Amherst, is scheduled to open in the fourth quarter of 2021. Empire will hire 70 people to help with warehousing, shipping and receiving, and office operations at the site.

“This strategic growth step positions Empire to more fully support our northeastern customers with a wide breadth of products,” Novo Building Products’ president and COO, Jeff Leys, stated.

“We are responding to marketplace needs for an additional Empire distribution center that increases our product offering while continuing to provide very specific products desired in this region of the country.”

“We’ve been exploring expansion options for Empire for more than a year in order to better respond to the demand coming from the New England marketplace. We’re excited to increase our company’s capabilities while serving our customers and bringing new employment opportunities to people in the Amherst area.”

The new Empire facility in Amherst, like the existing Empire locations, will distribute a wide range of products, including stair parts, medium-density fiberboard, hardwood, and polyurethane moldings and boards, as well as finger-jointed moldings and glued boards.

The facility will also stock products from L.J. Smith Stair Systems, Ornamental Decorative Millwork, and Turncraft Columns, as well as regionally specific molding profiles and materials.
