In 2011, Stanker &galetto , a Vineland general contracting firm, was hand-picked to build the largest industrial construction project in southern New Jersey in 2011 – the Schar USA gluten-free food manufacturing facility in Gloucester County. The Italian company’s 50,000 s/f building was built on eight acres and is the company’s first U.S. manufacturing facility. Schar USA invested more than $15 million into the operation and is expected to create 50 jobs in the area. Stanker & Galetto was instrumental in bringing Schar to the USA: “This is a watershed moment in the history of economic development in South Jersey,” said Peter Galetto, president of Stanker & Galetto. Stanker & Galetto pursued the $15 million, Schar USA project knowing that it would be the largest construction project in New Jersey in 2011, and would provide an economic boost to the state. The project was planned at 50,000 square feet, but Schar USA’s belief in the state as a place of opportunity led them to allow for an upcoming expansion to 80,000 square feet based on projected company growth. “Schar could have chosen any number of locations for this facility, but they chose South Jersey because of the opportunities for company growth, labor development and proximity to transportation,” said Peter Galetto, President of Stanker & Galetto.

Hance Construction has completed construction and renovation of the New Station Park Recreation Complex, a 12,150 s/f, multi-building facility located at 38 Station Road, Sparta, NJ adjacent to the historic Sparta Train Station. The Sparta Police Athletic League has signed a long-term lease with property owner Dermody Associates, Inc. for two of the buildings in the four-structure, 10-acre complex, a former industrial site that had been dormant for over 20 years. The New Station Park Recreation Complex features two new Butler Manufacturing metal buildings and two renovated buildings with Butler walls and roofs as well as The Simple Saver System, an insulation product that can reduce energy costs by as much as 50 percent during a building’s lifetime. “We worked with the Dermody team to make sure the facility met their needs and the end result is a highly sustainable, environment-friendly facility,” said Art Hance, President of Hance Construction. “The Station Road project is a good example of the fact that metal roofs and walls offer an unbeatable level of environmental performance and aesthetic appeal. Metal buildings today are sustainable, have low impact on the environment, reduce solid waste in construction, help reduce energy usage in all climates, and improve the air quality and water efficiency in buildings and their surroundings.” For more information visit pages 20-21a in this issue of the nJ section.
