Saxco International & Buzz Oates Announce

April 2, 2014

FAIRFIELD, CA – March 31, 2014: Saxco International (Saxco), a leading provider of rigid packaging solutions to the wine, beer, liquor and food industries in North America, and Buzz Oates, a commercial real estate development company in the Greater Central Valley, are pleased to announce Saxco’s lease of a 473,000 SF warehouse and distribution center to be constructed at the 52-acre Solano Logistics Center at Cordelia and Hale Ranch roads in Fairfield. The project will be constructed by Buzz Oates Construction, Inc., and is expected to be completed at the end of this year.

Pennsylvania-based Saxco plans to consolidate its Bay Area operations which have rapidly grown through acquisitions and increased product demand. A dominant player in the West with more than 2,000 customers, Saxco will consolidate several warehouses in Northern California into this 473,000 SF warehouse and distribution facility. The new location will expand Saxco’s capacity by 25%, according to Matthew Malenfant, Chief Executive Officer. “The building will be our flagship warehouse for bottles and packaging for all our customer segments throughout the west,” Mr. Malenfant said. Saxco employs more than 200 in the Bay Area.

Mike Stodden, President of Buzz Oates Construction, Inc., said, “We look forward to working with Saxco International and to bringing another quality Buzz Oates Construction, Inc., building to the Solano Logistics Center.” Based in Sacramento, California, Buzz Oates Construction, Inc., builds 1.5 – 2 million square feet per year and specializes industrial warehouse distribution centers.

Buzz Oates purchased 43 acres from the City of Fairfield near the end of 2012. This partnership led to an award of merit from the Sacramento-based California Association for Local Economic Development since the new development generated jobs during the economic slowdown. The award brings statewide public and professional recognition to projects and programs that have made significant contributions to the field of economic development.

The Solano Logistics Center is designed as a multi-building commercial industrial park with almost 1 million SF in state-of-the-art distribution facilities.

Colliers International’s Fairfield office represented Saxco.
