White Plains Linen, Peekskill’s largest employer with 400 employees, will soon be operating from a 90,000 sq. ft. facility. The project is slated to be Peekskill’s largest economic development project in the past decade. White Plains Linen is a linen rental supply business providing table linens, garments, towels, and other textile goods that it owns to over 2,000 customers in the region.
White Plains Linen will construct a new 31,460 sq. ft. building that connects its existing 30,000 sq. ft headquarters at 4 John Walsh Blvd. to a 28,000 sq. ft. building at 6 John Walsh Blvd. White Plains Linen acquired 6 John Walsh Blvd. in February for $2.8 million.
Upon completion of the project, White Plains Linen will move Highland Light Steam Laundry, Inc. from its Highland Avenue complex to this new facility on John Walsh Blvd. Highland Light Steam Laundry is a commercial laundry servicing the laundering, delivery, and operational needs of White Plains Linen. White Plains Linen will also continue to operate a warehouse at 10 John Walsh Boulevard. With this consolidation, White Plains Linen hopes to increase the efficiency of its operations and anticipates creating 25 new jobs over the next two years.
The Peekskill Industrial Development Agency assisted in the company’s expansion by using its powers to provide the company with a variety of economic development incentives which will make the company’s consolidation and expansion more cost effective.
