At a time when many companies are sending jobs overseas or eliminating positions outright, we are adding quality, well-paying permanent jobs right here in Long Island.
West Babylon, NY (PRWEB) October 06, 2015
OK Petroleum, which is a leading supplier of automotive products including gasoline, motor oil and home heating oil on Long Island, announced today that it has moved significantly closer to breaking ground on its brand new 63,449 square foot multi-story headquarters in Hauppauge, NY. The move was first announced in a feature article published by Newsday in late 2013.
“We are in the final stages of obtaining the required permits, and once that is done we will break ground with a move-in target date of early 2017,” commented Leo Musacchia, vice president and co-owner of OK Petroleum, which launched in 1976 and will celebrate its 40th anniversary next year. “The new headquarters will allow us to centralize our operations, exploit economies of scale, make our communications more efficient, and manage continued growth across all of our business lines.”
OK Petroleum is funding 100% of the $6.6 million construction costs for the new headquarters at 45 Commerce Drive in Hauppauge. It will replace the current 12,000 square foot headquarters located at 185 Route 109 in West Babylon, NY, which the company built in 2001. The expansion also means the company will be hiring approximately a dozen new full-time employees.
“At a time when many companies are sending jobs overseas or eliminating positions outright, we are adding quality, well-paying permanent jobs right here in Long Island,” added Musacchia. “Since day one, we have been committed to this area, and have built strong relationships with our staff, customers and the community. We are grateful for their ongoing support, and look forward to breaking ground on our new headquarters in the very near future.”
