After 7 years of consideration and 3 years of planning, Hill & Markes Inc, wholesale distributor in Amsterdam, New York moved to their brand new facility on Route 5S in the Town of Florida on Friday, July 15, 2011. The 130,000 square foot Green facility will house the entire operation of warehousing and offices for the company.

In creating this building, the most important considerations were:
•    An environmentally friendly facility. There will be an application for LEED Certification.
•    State of the Art Technology. New computer systems as well as efficiencies in lighting and heating the building are being implemented with the move.
•    Ability to train on site. A training room that will allow hands on training for staff and customers for products is a featured highlight of the building.
•    Appropriate space.  Warehouse operations are in an efficient state of the art location, eliminating multiple warehouse sites. Offices will allow for meeting space and expansion of the number of employees who can comfortably work in the building.

Working closely with Malone and Tate Builders Inc, Stracher, Roth and Gilmore, Architects, Rovetto Design Group and MH Professional Engineering, PLLC, Commissioning Authority and LEED Consultant the project has always focused on creating a healthy environment for employees and visitors.
