Ace Hardware Corporation, the world’s largest hardware cooperative, is pleased to announce expansion plans for its Retail Support Center located at 55 Northern Pines Rd., in Gansevoort, N.Y.

The soon-to-be expanded facility located near Wilton, N.Y., is part of the organization’s supply chain network of facilities strategically located across the globe. These warehouses supply merchandise to the more than 4,800 Ace Hardware retail stores worldwide. This expansion is taking place to support nearly 500 Ace Hardware retail stores in nine states, served by this Retail Support Center.

Part of a multi-million dollar investment from Ace Hardware Corporation, the facility’s expansion will take place over the next 24 months and will accommodate up to 400,000 sq. ft. of new warehouse space. Fueled by demand as a result of Ace’s record growth and financial performance, Ace will also add new jobs over the next several years to meet business and facility needs. Ace expects a number of construction jobs to be brought to the region to complete the expansion.

Ace Hardware conducted a rigorous phase of due diligence, where opportunities from
surrounding states were presented for relocation consideration. “Ace has been a part of the
Wilton and Gansevoort communities for nearly two decades; we were compelled to remain a part of this county’s business landscape and Ace looks forward to continued growth and collaboration with Saratoga County and the town of Wilton, N.Y.,” said Rick Whitson, Vice President of Distribution, Ace Hardware Corporation.

“We are pleased that Ace Hardware chose Wilton for its expansion plans,” said Dennis Brobston, president of Saratoga Economic Development Corporation. “The competitive climate for this project indicates how significantly communities value new jobs and investment. We look forward to Ace breaking ground soon.”

Ace Hardware will break ground on the facility’s expansion in the fourth quarter of 2015. Once complete, this warehouse facility will become one of the largest in Ace’s network of Retail Support Centers, at an estimated 1.2 million sq. ft.
