Uneeda’s founder Herman Fuchs cutting the ribbon to celebrate our headquarters’ expansion
Since 1967, Uneeda has been supplying the highest quality coated abrasive products to a wide range of industrial end users and distributors. Throughout our 55 year history, we have been fortunate to experience significant growth while surmounting many economic difficulties along the way.
A few years ago, we found ourselves running out of warehouse and manufacturing space to accommodate our continued growth. We were at a crossroads to decide what the best option could be to expand and support the business. We decided to make an investment in our local community and remain in Spring Valley, New York where we had our roots, both as a business and a family. We embarked on an expansion project to increase the size of our facility from 58,000 square feet to over 100,000 square feet. This project began almost four years ago when we approached the local planning board to obtain approval for our expansion.
Three years later, we finally received approval and broke ground in June of 2021. Seventeen months after breaking ground, we are proud to officially open our
expansion and begin a new chapter in Uneeda’s history. The expansion includes over 18,000 square feet of additional manufacturing floor space and 25,000 square feet of high ceiling warehouse space. We added a freight elevator and conveyor system to help with material handling; built additional production and warehouse offices; constructed two more loading docks and increased our parking capacity by 32 additional spaces.
We are excited about what the future may bring and look forward to many more years of sharing our success with our dedicated staff and loyal customers.
