McKesson Corporation will open a new distribution center and create 160 new jobs in Hamptonburgh, NY. The 340,000-square-foot facility will add to the company’s existing network capacity and help to service parts of Massachusetts, Connecticut, New York and Pennsylvania.
When completed in 2017, McKesson’s new Hamptonburgh distribution center will support the long-term distribution network infrastructure strategy for McKesson customers in the Northeast region and provide greater market coverage to the area. The Hamptonburgh location will include state-of-the-art technology and automation to help drive productivity and quality gains in the future.
“McKesson is committed to delivering the highest level of service and quality to our customers at all times, and our investment in a new facility in Hamptonburgh, NY further positions us to deliver on that promise,” said Mark Walchirk, President, U.S. Pharmaceutical, McKesson. “We appreciate the partnership we have established with the Orange County Industrial Development Agency (IDA) and look forward to being an active part of the Hamptonburgh community.”
“We are very pleased that McKesson decided to build their newest distribution center in Orange County. The facility brings tremendous economic benefits to the Town of Hamptonburgh and the county, including the creation of more than 160 new jobs,” said Maureen Halahan, President & CEO of the Orange County Partnership.
“The IDA Board is proud to have played a part in bringing McKesson to Orange County, and looks forward to the many opportunities this project will bring to the members of our community,” added Orange County IDA Chairman Robert T. Armistead.
