American Granby is a wholesale distributor of pumps, wells, pools, and plumbing and irrigation systems. VIP began working with American Granby in 2005 to construct their 113,000 SF warehouse and distribution center in Liverpool, NY. The facility’s design incorporates expandable end walls and the structure is designed for anticipated future growth.
The success of this project, and the relationship that formed with VIP, led American Granby to construct a 42,000 SF warehouse expansion that was joined to their facility as originally planned in the initial design. This required 45,000 cubic yards of earth to be moved, equating to roughly 3,000 truckloads. This method allowed foundations to be poured and building erection to occur during the winter months. Due to the building’s location, large amounts of snow and ice accumulate creating difficult conditions around the loading dock areas. VIP added heated loading dock aprons at the new and existing loading areas to aid in preventing ice and snow accumulation.
The state-of-the art 155,000 SF warehouse allows American Granby to stock over 20,000 items for wholesale distributors throughout the United States, Canada and around the world.
