Construction Underway in Amsterdam
Goodlettsville, Tennessee – (June 27, 2017) – Construction is officially underway on Dollar General’s 16th distribution center in Amsterdam, New York. Located in Montgomery County, the distribution center is expected to create 430 new jobs, as well as approximately 200 additional, temporary construction positions to build the nearly 750,000-square-foot facility. Based on the project’s current timeline, Dollar General expects to complete construction and begin hiring employees to support the distribution facility by fall 2018.
“Dollar General is looking forward to adding another state-of-the-art and highly-efficient distribution center to support our growing store network in both New York and throughout the northeast,” said Todd Vasos, Dollar General’s CEO. “It is exciting to move forward with a project that will create more than 400 jobs in Montgomery County. I am grateful for our continued partnership and support on this project from New York Governor Andrew Cuomo, New York’s Empire State Development and local leadership in Montgomery County.”
Dollar General selected Clayco as the project’s official general contractor, Leo A. Daly as the architectural engineering firm and Elan Design as the civil engineering firm.
When fully operational, the facility is expected to supply products to approximately 800 Dollar General stores throughout New York and the northeastern states that Dollar General serves. In New York alone, Dollar General currently operates approximately 360 stores with more than 3,000 employees.
Amsterdam was chosen in part for its convenient location to Interstate 90, its proximity to Dollar General stores throughout the northeast, Montgomery County’s local business environment, quality workforce in the area and the availability of local and state economic incentives, among numerous other considerations.
Dollar General’s 15 other distribution centers are located in Alabama, California, Florida, Georgia, Indiana, Kentucky, Mississippi, Missouri, Ohio, Oklahoma, Pennsylvania, South Carolina, Texas, Virginia, Wisconsin.
