A. Duie Pyle, one of the Northeastern United States’ top truckload, less than truckload and warehousing and distribution companies, will construct a two-building industrial complex in Grimes Industrial Park, Pittston Township.
The complex will consist of an expandable 32,795 square foot terminal with an attached office and an 8,505 square foot maintenance building. The 12.95 acre project site is located on Sathers Drive and has been fully prepared by Mericle Commercial Real Estate Services through the developer’s ReadyToGo!™ Program.
Headquartered in West Chester, Pennsylvania, A. Duie Pyle is privately owned and is considered the Northeast’s premier asset based supply chain solutions provider with extended less than truckload (LTL) service coverage into the Southeast, Midwest, and Canada. The company provides a complete range of integrated supply chain solutions including LTL, truckload, dedicated, brokerage, and warehouse and distribution.
Mericle Vice President Bill Jones represented the developer on the real estate transaction. A. Duie Pyle was represented by John Cognetti of Hinerfeld Realty, Scranton and Laurence Casey of Cassidy Turley’s Edison, New Jersey office.
“It was a pleasure to work with A.Duie Pyle’s team and we are pleased to have been able to complete the building pad for this project,” said Jones. “Our civil engineering and excavation teams did a great job designing and preparing the site. This location will give A.Duie Pyle quick access to I-81 and I-476, access that will be enhanced when the new connector road to I-81 near the airport opens.”
“A. Duie Pyle is a proven leader in the supply chain industry for almost 90 years, Jones added. The company’s investment in Northeastern Pennsylvania sends a clear message that our area is a preferred logistics destination along the I-81 Corridor.”
Grimes Industrial Park was developed by the Greater Pittston Chamber of Commerce. Chamber President Joseph Burke welcomed A. Duie Pyle to the park. “A. Duie Pyle’s well-earned reputation as a premier supply chain solution provider further enhances the emerging reputation of Northeastern Pennsylvania and Greater Pittston as a hub for commercial growth and prosperity,” said Burke. The Chamber extends its congratulations to all participants in establishing this new facility. In particular, Mericle Commercial Real Estate’s ‘Ready to Go Program’ remains an extraordinary catalyst for regional development and entrepreneurship.”

Through its ReadyToGo!™, Mericle is fully preparing 90 sites in 11 Northeastern Pennsylvania business parks for immediate building construction. The sites can accommodate facilities ranging from 10,000 square feet to more than 1 million square feet.

Founded by Robert K. Mericle, Mericle Construction Inc. self-performs virtually all aspects of development and construction, using its own in-house personnel, Mericle Construction is better able to control costs and fast track delivery schedules to meet its clients’ needs. It fashions itself as a throwback to the “master builder” of old when experienced craftsmen self-performed all aspects of the construction process.
