ROME, N.Y. -- Orgill, Inc. in Rome will begin hiring key personnel in Summer 2020. Company officials will continue staffing the facility closer towards its opening. 

The state-of-the-art facility will employ around 225 people. It will showcase new technologies including a “voice pick” system and will serve seven states in the Northeast. 

The $71 million, 790,000 square-foot facility is being built at Griffiss, on roughly 65 acres on the former Skyline Housing Site across from Rome Free Academy. 

Orgill, Inc. serves more than 6,000 retail hardware stores, home centers, professional lumber dealers and farm stores internationally.

“We are excited to expand our distribution network and look forward to the enhanced efficiencies this will create for our customers as we move forward,” says Boyden Moore, Orgill’s CEO & president.

To encourage Orgill's investment in the Mohawk Valley, Empire State Development has offered up to $3.5 million in performance-based Excelsior Jobs Program tax credits, which are tied directly to the creation of 225 jobs.

“We are eager to get the facility up and running and will begin to ramp up staffing at the facility as we move through this process,” says Randy Williams, Orgill’s EVP, Distribution. “Upon completion, the facility will provide quality jobs to local residents who will play a pivotal role in helping us fulfill our corporate mission and make our customers more successful.”

Construction at the site is expected to be completed by early 2022. 

The hardware distribution center is their first in New York State.
