Schenectady, N.Y. — The Schenectady County Metroplex Development Authority today announced that Captech Logistics will locate its third party logistics (3PL) facility in Rotterdam by leasing 43,000 square feet in Building 14 at the Rotterdam Corporate Park.
Captech Logistics will offer customized contract warehousing, web-based inventory management and distribution services at the Rotterdam location.
“Our goal is to allow our customers to focus on their core competencies while greatly reducing or eliminating their capital expenditures associated with the equipment, facilities and resources related to their warehousing and distribution services, ” said Allen Kintz, co-founder of Captech Logistics.
Building 14 is a 260,000 square foot warehouse building that is located at the 200 acre, 4.5 million square foot Rotterdam Corporate Park, the largest business park in the Capital Region. The Rotterdam Corporate Park is owned by the Galesi Group, the largest commercial real estate developer in the Capital Region.
“We are excited about selecting Rotterdam and Schenectady County for our new logistics center. The County’s economic development team worked with us every step of the way and the location where Route 7, I-88 and I-90 meet is outstanding,” said Dan Finkle, co-founder of Captech Logistics.
“We welcome Captech Logistics to Schenectady County,” said Judy Dagostino, Chairwoman of the Schenectady County Legislature. “This is another great addition to the Rotterdam Corporate Park which has been a catalyst for growing and attracting businesses to Rotterdam and Schenectady County.”
Rotterdam Town Supervisor Harry Buffardi said, “Rotterdam continues to work closely with the County’s economic development team to attract new businesses. We appreciate the fact that Captech Logistics selected Rotterdam over many competing sites in the Capital Region.”
Dan Finkle was formerly President of Finkle Distributors. Before it was sold to CoreMark International in 2010, the company had $350 million in sales and 300 employees including an 180,000 square foot distribution facility in Johnstown, NY.
Allen Kintz was the Vice President of Kintz Plastics Inc. for 15 years, a major plastics manufacturer located in Howes Cave, NY.
Together, the two partners have extensive experience with distribution and logistics functions in a Lean Manufacturing environment. The company expects to employ 25 in Rotterdam within four years.
