Frederick Goldman, Inc. Opens 88,000-SF Facility in New Jersey
Secaucus, NJ—After 70 years in New York City, Frederick Goldman, Inc. has decamped across the river. The company has relocated its operations to a new facility in Secaucus, NJ. The company was awarded up to $20 million dollars in tax credits over 10 years, under the Grow NJ program, after successful negotiations with the state.
The move helps Frederick Goldman position itself for the future through investment in facilities, plant equipment, and systems and technology, positioning it to operate with greater efficiency while creating a platform for sustainable growth. The new building is an 88,000 square-foot former outlet center, now transformed to a Corporate Operations and Innovation Center, housing state-of-the-art manufacturing and distribution equipment. The building is solar powered and has zero process water discharge.

CEO Jonathan Goldman said, “It was difficult to move out of NYC after so many years with many memories, especially of our father Frederick, the founder of our company. However, we are incredibly excited to start a new chapter, and look forward to many years of growth in our business, made possible by this move.”
“We will leverage our investment to improve our operations and drive enhanced service for our valued customers,” added president Richard Goldman, who led the site selection, the Grow NJ tax credits, as well as construction build-out. “New Jersey was an easy choice for us, as we value our team and with the proximity to New York [City], we were successful in retaining our talented work force.”
Pesavento Celebrates Silver Anniversary
Vicenza, Italy—Italian silver jewelry company Pesavento celebrates its silver anniversary in 2017.
