Leonard’s Express buys former GLK cabbage processing facility in Manchester

The Farmington-based trucking comany is diversifying to provide warehouse service for its customers

MANCHESTER — A large manufacturing facility that once housed a cabbage processing operation has a new owner, and new hope for growth in the future.

Farmington-based Leonard’s Express in July bought the former GLK Foods manufacturing and warehouse facility on Clark Street and has converted a portion of the building into warehouse space for food- and beverage-grade products, according to Michael Riccio, who is chief marketing officer for Leonard’s Express.

“Some of our customers are looking for warehouse service,” Riccio said. “We’re growing and trying to diversify.”

And after concerns about the impact on town and village residents were addressed, the company is being welcomed with open arms, according to Manchester Supervisor Jeff Gallahan.
