Bartlett Dairy Opens Jamaica, New York, Distribution Hub

09/02/2021
Bartlett Dairy, Inc. started construction on a 54,000 square foot dairy distribution center in Jamaica, Queens, New York. The facility will be located on a significant portion of the JFK North Site, one of the largest city-owned manufacturing-zoned properties.?

“We are excited to be returning home to Jamaica. When my father started this company more than fifty years ago, Bartlett Dairy was a small one man, one truck operation, said Bartlett Dairy Inc. President Thomas Malave Jr. “Over the years, my brothers and I have worked tirelessly to build upon the opportunity our father provided. It has been astonishing to see the growth that we have been able to achieve. We would not be where we are today, breaking ground on our new headquarters, without the dedication of all of our wonderful employees and the support of the City of New York, Borough President Richards, Greater Jamaica Development Corporation and the local community.”

The new distribution center will allow Bartlett to bring approximately 165 jobs with average wages of $70,000 back to Queens from New Jersey.

“Today’s groundbreaking is a true testament to New York City’s continued economic recovery,” said NYCEDC President and CEO Rachel Loeb. “Bartlett’s new headquarters and dairy and food distribution center will bring quality jobs to New Yorkers, while strengthening the City’s food economy. We are proud to have worked with Bartlett Dairy and Queens Borough President Richards to make this happen. We want businesses to know they can grow and succeed in NYC, and Bartlett is a great example. Congratulations to Tom Malave, Jr. We wish him, his family, and his team a bright future here in Queens.
