OCS Logistics Buys 275,000 square foot Bldg from Paris Accessories Plant

Paris Accessories recently sold the former 275,000 square foot plant to OCS Logistics, the regional third party logistics services provider for refrigerated products. The industrial facility is located in the Queen City Industrial Park on 15 acres near the Lehigh Street Exit of I-78.  

With this additional facility, OCS Logistics will operate nearly 1.1 million square feet of temperature controlled space with four distribution facilities to service their national and regional accounts. OCS chose an existing facility over new construction as part of their corporate focus upon environmental and sustainability values. They chose this urban property as part of their efforts to revitalize the City of Allentown. 

The following major modifications are being made to this older building: Raising the roof from a 16’ to a 30’ height, renovating the building using “green “ materials and guidelines, and adding refrigeration equipment. OCS anticipates an initial hiring of 50 additional employees and more job growth as the building modifications are completed.
