Bartlett Dairy Breaks Ground on New Headquarters in Jamaica

Representatives from the New York City Economic Development Corporation, other city and state leaders and community stakeholders celebrated the groundbreaking Thursday of a new headquarters and distribution site for Bartlett Dairy, Inc. and its affiliates in Queens’ Jamaica neighborhood.  

The minority-owned, family-run local business will develop a 54,000-square foot dairy distribution center on a significant portion of the JFK North Site, one of the largest city-owned manufacturing-zoned properties.  The new distribution center will allow Bartlett to bring approximately 165 jobs back to Queens from New Jersey. 

“When my father started this company more than 50 years ago, Bartlett Dairy was a small one-man, one-truck operation,” said Bartlett Dairy president Thomas Malave, Jr. “Over the years, my brothers and I have worked tirelessly to build upon the opportunity our father provided. It has been astonishing to see the growth that we have been able to achieve.”
