EL & EL Wood Products Corp., which has offices in Elk Grove and Chino, has acquired a 20-acre industrial site in Galt and plans to construct a 220,000-square-foot wholesale distribution center for its line of moldings, doors and other building materials.
The land-acquisition announcement by city officials and the Sacramento office of Cushman &Wakefield commercial real estate did not disclose financial details. The move is expected to bring 75 new jobs to Galt.
The company currently employs 255 people and manages its own fleet of trucks throughout California, Nevada and Arizona.
“We chose Galt for its business-friendly atmosphere, reasonable land costs and centralized proximity to serve all of Northern California,” said Cathy Vidas, president of EL & EL, which has been in business for nearly 50 years.
Galt City Manager Jason Behrmann said EL & EL’s planned facility “will be a perfect fit for our industrial park.”
