A New Jersey foodservice distributor will take over an abandoned site in New York state for new distribution operations, New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo announced Wednesday.
Driscoll Foods, which is based in Clifton, will create 60 jobs in Amsterdam in New York’s Mohawk Valley, according to a news release. The facility will serve that valley in New York, as well as its Capital Region.
“This decision by Driscoll Foods to expand their operations into Montgomery County and transform an abandoned facility is bringing new economic energy into the local community,” Cuomo said.
Empire State Development provided a grant of up to $200,000 to assist with the purchase and renovation of the former Quandts site, which was sitting vacant in a distressed area of Amsterdam.
