The building is being updated for manufacturing.

Taylor Made Group said that it has acquired an 80,000-sq. foot facility that was owned by Swany America Corporation in Johnstown, New York. The Lippert division said it will relocate its distribution and shipping operations to the new facility.

Distribution operations will be transitioned from its Harrison Street facility, a 120,000-square-foot building. That building will now be dedicated to future manufacturing expansion, either through organic business growth or acquisitions.

“This purchase is a considerable investment for us and represents our continued commitment to the Gloversville community and to the growth of marine manufacturing right here in Taylor Made’s hometown,” said Jason Pajonk-Taylor, vice president for Taylor Made, in the statement. “We’re very excited to officially be taking this step.”

David Karpinski, general manager for Taylor Made Aftermarket, added: “The additional space will allow our aftermarket business to continue its growth path in current and future manufacturing processes as we look to build on the momentum we’ve built over the last several years.”
