Ace Wire & Cable Co Opens New Facility
Avenel, NJ—Ace Wire & Cable Co. of Avenel, NJ and REDCOM Design & Construction LLC. of Westfield, NJ celebrated the opening of Ace Wire & Cable Co.’s new facility in Avenel. The ribbon-cutting ceremony was attended by employees and government officials. Ace Wire & Cable operates two facilities, one in Woodside, New York and the new facility in Avenel.
The new facility was designed by REDCOM Design & Construction LLC’s architectural design team and built by REDCOM Design & Construction LLC’s construction management team. REDCOM’s team of architects, engineers, designers, project managers and job site supervisors guided the project from concept to Planning Board approval through the ribbon cutting ceremony. The 31,400 SF masonry and steel building has 3,800 SF of office space, plus 5,000 SF of interior loading dock. The remaining space will be used for product storage. The design of the building called for translucent panel at the top of the walls. These panels let in natural light which reduces the electrical lighting needs while also reducing the heat buildup from the sun that windows would have. The building was built to Ace Wire & Cable’s need for expanded office and warehouse space in New Jersey. Prior to this facility, Ace Wire & Cable was leasing space in a smaller building. Robert Casagrande of Cassidy Turley brokered the deal to have Ace Wire & Cable build their own building to suit after finding the Avenel property.
Attending the ribbon-cutting ceremony was John McCormac, Mayor of Woodbridge. Executives from Ace Wire & Cable Co included Jerry Firestone, President, Harris Firestone, Vice President, Edwin Tyas, Chief Financial Officer and Anthony Esposito, Purchasing Manager. Attending from REDCOM Design & Construction LLC included Greg Redington, President, John Cannata, Executive Vice President, Sam Rockaway, Vice President of Sales, Roberto Martinez, Vice President of Architecture, John Manillo, Vice President of Engineering , Eric Buckley, Architect, Terry McCuen, Job Site Supervisor, Vincent Calabresi, Project Manager, Mark Rabon, Project Manager, Dave Gasson, Project Manager and Lawren Hackney, Project Manager.
