New York, NY (PRWEB) March 11, 2011
Josh "Shuki" Cohen, 28-year-old Founder and CEO of The Junkluggers an eco-friendly junk removal company, has recently left Fairfield, Connecticut to move the company headquarters to the Big Apple. Having grown from a one-man show to a company of 35+ employees, Cohen decided that moving to New York City was the next big step in the Junkluggers' expansion.
"New York City is the epicenter of the tri-state area, which is where most of our business takes place, and therefore the best option for us as far as establishing a company headquarters." said Cohen.
The company plans to continue expanding over the years to come, with the ultimate goal of becoming a nation-wide junk removal service. Currently operating in Connecticut and New York, the company owns a total of twelve trucks and plans to add more to the fleet within the next few months as they expand into New Jersey and other parts of Long Island.
Unlike competing junk removal companies, The Junkluggers are set apart by their eco-friendly focus on keeping as much as possible out of the landfills by donating and recycling the 'junk' that is 'lugged'.
"(New York City) is undoubtedly more progressive in its green initiatives than any other city in the area, and as an eco-friendly company, we knew that being in that atmosphere was important for the growth and evolution of our mission." said Cohen. “There is a lot of opportunity. We have already started forming strategic relationships with local universities, non-profit charities, recycling centers and city agencies. Overall, people are excited to work with a company like ours.”
Now located in a sunny loft in Midtown Manhattan, the day to day operations are overseen from a central location, fielding calls from all over the tri-state area. "Everyday we help our customers work towards keeping as much out of landfills as possible by donating and recycling." says Cohen. "We take it to heart that what we do is not only a service to the customer, but a service to the environment, as well."
