"Ferguson Enterprises' decision to invest in Greene County is another win in our efforts to grow the Upstate economy by creating jobs and new economic opportunities for New Yorkers," Governor Cuomo said in a press release announcing the new project. "By establishing this new distribution center, Ferguson Enterprises is bringing nearly 100 jobs to the Capital Region and spurring continued growth in the community of Coxsackie. This was a collaborative effort -- with support from both the state and local governments -- and I am pleased to welcome this company to New York State."
In recent months, Ferguson has increased its investment in the Northeast. The company made several acquisitions in New York and New Jersey including The Davidson Group, Davis & Warshow and Karl's Appliance, complementing its more than 100 already existing Ferguson locations in the region.
