SARATOGA SPRINGS — Saratoga Eagle Sales and Service is adding 35,000 square-feet of space to the 150,000 square- feet distribution center in Saratoga Springs.
According to President of Saratoga Eagle Sales and Service, Jeff Vukelic the expansion could cost up to $4 million. Plans call for a 29,000 square foot expansion to the warehouse and a 5,000 square foot expansion to the office. The project also proposes to increase parking on site for employees and trailers. When asked if the parking was to accommodate more jobs, Vukelic said, “I can’t comment on that right now.”
Vukelic said the company’s business climate has been steady as the company continues to attract new business partners and suppliers. The expansion allows for more space for these new suppliers bringing both alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages.
Plans have been in motion since early summer, according to Vukelic who is also aiming to break ground in the spring. Saratoga Eagle will go before the city planning board on Nov. 15 to seek approval for the warehouse expansion.
Saratoga Eagle sells andtransports 5,000,000 cases every year to customers in Albany, Essex, Franklin, Fulton, Hamilton, Montgomery, Rensselaer, Saratoga, Schoharie, Schenectady, Washington and Warren Counties. Saratoga Eagle tapped The LA Group and Scheid Architectural as the architects and Munter Enterprises as the building entity.
