D’Addario announced the purchase of two adjacent industrial buildings next to its headquarters at 595 Smith St in Farmingdale, N.Y.
The company’s plan is to merge the two recently purchased buildings, yielding 37,000 square feet of manufacturing and warehouse space. Scheduled to be completed by September 2019, the new facility will be the future home of Evans Drumheads.
Sustainability is a huge initiative that D’Addario has strived to accomplish for years. The new buildings will be energy efficient and will pursue LEED (Leadership in Energy & Environmental Design) certification. New energy efficient lighting, as well as heating and cooling systems, will be installed, in addition to plans to divert building waste away from landfill sites to recycling and recovery centers.
“Following our commitment to corporate social responsibility, pursuing LEED gets us a step closer to hitting our goals,” said Tom Stack, RA, LEED AP, director of global design, planning and construction.
