June 21, 2019

Governor Andrew M. Cuomo today announced that Orgill, Inc., the world's largest independent hardlines distributor, will build its first Northeastern U.S. distribution center in Rome, Oneida County. The new, 780,000 square-foot facility, to be located at Griffiss Business and Technology Park, will be the company's first in New York State and lead to the creation of 225 new jobs in the Mohawk Valley. The company plans to invest nearly $70 million to construct and equip the facility, which will serve Orgill's customers throughout the Northeast.

"The Mohawk Valley is a prime location for businesses moving products throughout the Northeast, and the Orgill distribution center is a welcome addition to the region," Governor Cuomo said. "We proudly invest in companies that invest in New York, and with the hundreds of jobs generated by this new facility there is no doubt it will help bolster the region's economy."

"Orgill's distribution center in Rome is a significant investment in the area, creating hundreds of jobs," said Lieutenant Governor Kathy Hochul.  "The construction of this project will create new opportunities and strengthen the economy of the entire Mohawk Valley region."
