WATERTOWN, NY — Cazenovia Equipment Company, Inc opened their new Watertown sales and service facility on January 4, 2021.
Cazenovia Equipment has merged its Sandy Creek and Watertown locations into a new facility in the Thousand Islands International Agriculture and Business Park, located on Route 3 in the Town of Watertown (20897 Alexander Dr., Watertown).
The 25,000 square foot facility offers residential, commercial and agricultural parts, sales and service for their John Deere, Honda and Stihl product lines.
Site work began on the Cazenovia Equipment project in the Fall of 2019, with construction of the building starting in the Spring of 2020. “Like many other businesses we faced our share of Covid-19 related challenges in this project,” explained Michael E. Lundy, President of The Lundy Group of Companies. “Delays in supplies, equipment, infrastructure development, and even availability of labor resulted in the project taking a little longer than we would typically expect, but in the end, and with great deal of cooperation and effort from all parties, we are very happy with the final result. The facility is a great example of our Design/Build concept and the Butler Building Systems.” Each and every part of the facility has a great deal of thought and purpose to it; from the main service area having 30-foot-high ceilings with clear span width, an 84-foot-wide bridge crane which travels that entire space, to including an indoor showroom and display areas. “Each internal area was designed in a manner to increase staff efficiency and provide for a strong workflow.” In addition to the facility itself, the property includes 5-acres of yard for equipment storage and display.
In the spring of 2019 The Lundy Group of Companies announced plans for a new agribusiness park on Route 3 in the Town of Watertown, New York. The 150-acre Thousand Islands International Agriculture and Business Park provides the premier location for commercial, industrial, and retail ventures, as well as those related to agricultural businesses. The Cazenovia Equipment facility is the first occupant in the Park to be completed and open for business. Work is also well underway on an Eagle Beverage 7,400 square foot cross-docking/distribution center. Plans call for completion if the Eagle Beverage center in the spring.
Mt. Lundy also reiterated previous comments on what a great fit Cazenovia Equipment is for the new AgriBusiness Park. “Cazenovia Equipment and John Deere are not only synonymous with the agriculture community, but also as a growing presence for rural homeowners and local commercial interests with the John Deere lawn and garden equipment. Having them as our first occupant is a great opportunity and it shows the versatility of the various business and agricultural related companies that the Park brings to the area. It also demonstrates the importance of this key location for future occupants. The close proximity to a population center like Watertown, and easy access from Route 3 and Interstate 81 are what companies like Cazenovia are looking for.”
Cazenovia Equipment noted: The Sandy Creek and former Watertown store in Burrville, which they were leasing, closed permanently on December 26. The company now owns the new combined facility in the TI Agribusiness Park. The Company is also opening a new location in Fulton, NY. While there will be no immediate Grand Opening open house out of concern for the health and safety of customers and staff, a spring 2021 celebration will be planned.
