BelGioioso Cheese Plant expansion coming to Schenectady

Schenectady County Metroplex Development Authority recently announced the BelGioioso Cheese Plant expansion, at the Glenville Business & Tech Park in Schenectady County. The Wisconsin based BelGioioso Cheese Inc., has contracted Schenectady-based LeChase Construction, to handle this project which entails renovating and converting a section of Building 403; a 120,000-square-foot vacant warehouse.

The BelGioioso Cheese Plant expansion is estimated at $6 million and will involve renovations to Building 403, which include a new 60,000 square feet cold storage room, 3,000 square feet office space, and some additional room for future developments. Building 403 is located on the site of a 40-acre former U.S. Navy depot, which BelGioioso purchased three years ago from Metroplex. It’s also in close proximity to a BelGioioso’s Glenville factory which was built in the same industrial park about 2 years ago and currently has about 50 people employed on the plant.
