Nicolock has acquired the Sparta, N.J., operation of Grinnell Concrete Paving Stones Inc., enhancing distribution logistics and adding production in a fourth state. The location joins the producer’s nine hardscape unit plants in Connecticut, Maryland and New York, along with six distribution centers in Delaware, Massachusetts, New Jersey, Pennsylvania and Virginia.

“The expansion is a result of our continued growth, due to the hard work and dedication of our internal teams and dealer network,” says Nicolock CEO Roberto Nicolia. “The new facility enables us to grow our already significant presence in New Jersey, eastern Pennsylvania, and Upstate New York, and to be closer to our customers and key supply partners to improve efficiency and delivery schedules throughout the region.”

The former Grinnell facility has two buildings totaling 50,800 square feet of innovative technology and automated systems, he adds, plus future physical plant growth/expansion opportunities. In the coming weeks, Nicolock will be fully assessing the site’s initial product offerings, timelines, and logistics.
