SCHENECTADY, N.Y. — The Schenectady County Metroplex Development Authority today announced that GreenSheen, a fast-growing paint recycling company based in Denver with operations in Phoenix and Kent, Washington has selected the Rotterdam Corporate Park in Schenectady County for a new paint recycling and manufacturing facility.
GreenSheen is working with NYS DEC to help implement a new paint recycling program. The company considered sites throughout New York State before selecting the Rotterdam Corporate Park to serve customers in the Northeastern United States.
The Metroplex Board of Directors will consider a $75,000 grant for the project at its next meeting on April 27. The company plans to lease over 40,000 square feet in Building 14 at the Rotterdam Corporate Park to serve as the company’s paint recycling and manufacturing center.
The Rotterdam Corporate Park is located where Route 7, I-88 and I-90 meet. The four million square foot facility is owned and managed by the Galesi Group. It is the largest business park in the Capital Region.
Kevin Callahan, Founder and CEO of GreenSheen said, “GreenSheen Paint is very excited for the opportunity to collect and recycle latex paint from the residents and businesses in New York State. We look forward to bringing the first latex paint recycling program to New York State and Schenectady County.”
“We are excited to bring this high-quality green manufacturing company to Schenectady County,” said Anthony Jasenski, Chair of the Schenectady County Legislature. “After considering sites all across New York, we thank them for selecting our community and for working with our economic development team at Metroplex and the Galesi Group to locate at the Rotterdam Corporate Park.”
GreenSheen will create 25 new jobs in Rotterdam.
Ray Gillen, Metroplex Chair said, “The new paint stewardship program put in place by New York State created an opportunity to bring in a new business. We were pleased to show the company sites and buildings in Schenectady County and to be selected for this new project.”
