Americans love fruit snacks, and that has Promotion in Motion growing

A lot has changed in the world within the last five years, said David Nenner, but one important thing that has not: Americans love fruit snacks.

Nenner, who is senior vice president, regional manager at CenterPoint Properties, was speaking as Promotion in Motion Inc., a food manufacturer based in Allendale, broke ground for an 80,000-square-foot addition to its manufacturing operations.

PIM, best known for Welch’s fruit snacks, partnered with CenterPoint on the project.

“This new addition will address the needs of the company’s growing business and will eventually allow for increased production of the company’s signature fruit snacks,” Nenner said.

A group of about 80 employees, local business leaders and city officials were all in attendance as they stared out at the flooded plot of red dirt that spanned the length of a football field.

“After many studies by our business partnership, we have the proof and the numbers to show that whatever position you want filled, from entry-level to CEO, we can fill it here in Somerset County,” said Somerset County Freeholder Deputy Director Patricia Walsh.

Walsh said the partnership works closely with businesses from small to large, and in conjunction with the county college and vo-tech, to provide the workforce Somerset businesses need.

PIM CEO Michael Rosenberg spoke to ROI-NJ about his experience in attracting and retaining talent in the manufacturing sector over the past few years.

“It has been a challenge, but we’ve hired many local people as well as recruited people from other parts of the country,” Rosenberg told ROI. “If you walked into our factory, you’d find a lot of people from the Midwest and other parts that have moved here to work at our facility because finding the skillsets has been challenging.”

Rosenberg said it’s especially difficult for the really core factory positions like mechanics, machinists, electricians and PLC programming.

“This is not a blue-collar state, it’s a state of highly educated people,” he said.

Rosenberg said the state needs to think hard about if it wants more manufacturing jobs and how it can partner with business to drive those types of disciplines in schools.

“A factory job is a fantastic thing as a high-paying and dependable job,” he said.

The addition will address the company’s growing business and eventually allow for increased production of the company’s signature fruit snacks and entry into Gummi vitamins and other products. PIM says the additional space will allow for improvements in packaging, warehousing and operations.

Rosenberg, just like so many others, doesn’t appreciate New Jersey’s high taxes and unfriendly business climate but, just like so many others, has many other reasons why he enjoys doing business here.

“It’s close to my home and our corporate headquarters. The proximity is also fantastic. I love being close to New York, Philadelphia, the local airports and other transportation. I think about one-third of the U.S. population lives within miles of this facility, so it’s easier to attract people for both factory tours and employment,” Rosenberg said.

He said that, if New Jersey wants to attract more businesses, it needs to think about its policies and understand that, in order to be attractive, the state needs to not only be a pleasant place for people to do business but also be more competitive in comparison to other states.

PIM already has two facilities in the state, one with 175,000 square feet and the other with 325,000 square feet. With the addition of the 80,000 square feet, this facility in Somerset will be over 250,000 square feet when completed. Total investment into the project exceeded $30 million.

Rosenberg said the company didn’t even own a screwdriver when it first moved in.

“From an empty building to where we are now is pretty remarkable,” he said. “We’re the third-largest privately-owned employer in the food sector in the state; year after year, our company delivers double-digit growth and consumers eat about 100 packs of our product every second.”

Rosenberg said he started the business with $150 out of his college dorm room and, if he had known it would be this successful, he would’ve invested $200. He said he’s opening up the Welch’s fruit snacks factory tour and expecting about a million visitors a year, which he said would be a big boost to the local economy.

Rosenberg, who currently has 800 employees, couldn’t say how many jobs will be added with this new construction.

He said the facility operates 24/7 and will be available for some purposes around October. By next summer, it will be functional as a manufacturing facility and, six to 12 months after that, there will be a ribbon-cutting for the factory tour.

2 Bergen Men Admit Roles In Real Estate Scheme

Two Bergen County men admitted their roles in a real estate scheme that defrauded people out of $4.6 million.

Steve Young Kang, 64, of Ridgefield, and Young Jin Son, 49, of Norwood each pleaded guilty in Newark federal court Thursday to bank fraud and wire fraud, said U.S. Attorney Craig Carpenito.

Kang, a real estate broker and agent admitted that from June 2013 to January 2017 he sold his properties in short sales and recruited others to do the same. The properties were sold to Mehdi Kassai, a co-schemer, Carpenito said.

Son admitted recruiting others to sell properties in short sales to Kassai, Carpentio said.

The properties were purchased for substantially less that what they were actually worth. Kassai then sold the properties to other people for a “substantial profit,” Carpenito said.

Kang defrauded people out of about $2.7 million and Son about $1.9 million, Carpenito said.

Kang and Son each face a maximum penalty of 30 years in prison and a $2 million fine. They agreed to forfeit proceeds gained from the scheme.

Sentencing is scheduled for Oct. 1. Kassai previously pleaded guilty to his role in the scheme and is awaiting sentencing.

Middlesex County College gets $10K gift from Provident foundation

Middlesex County College has received a $10,000 donation from the Provident Bank Foundation, continuing the bank’s longstanding support.

“The Provident Bank Foundation has been a longtime and very loyal supporter of MCC and its students,” said Veronica Clinton, executive director of the MCC Foundation. “We are grateful for their continued faith in the work we do and in our students.”

The Provident Bank Foundation’s 2019-20 Mission Partnership supports Middlesex County College’s Annual Scholarship Reception, Casino Night and other programs.

“The scholarship paid for two full classes, which helped me so much. It’s been a culture shock going back to school, but I’m showing my kids anything is possible at any age,” said Justin Lally, who went back to school after 20 years to move up at his employer, Toyota. He received the Provident Bank foundation scholarship of $1,000.

The Provident Bank Foundation Endowed Scholarship at MCC supports business or accounting students with a minimum 3.0 GPA. Students enrolled in the Educational Opportunity Fund program are given preference. The scholarship was established in 2005 and has allowed students to earn an associate degree at MCC.

“I feel prepared to succeed at Rutgers, and I attribute that to the help and individual attention that MCC gave me,” said Cameron Clark, who entered the workforce but decided to go back to college at 24 years old. He graduated from MCC last semester with an associate degree while the scholarship helped him pay for his last few classes. He’s now at Rutgers University.

The Provident Bank Foundation was established in 2003 by Jersey City-based Provident Bank with the purpose of enhancing the quality of life in the region through support of not-for-profit groups, institutions, schools and other 501(c)(3) organizations that provide services in communities served by the bank. Since inception, the foundation has granted more than $24 million to not-for-profit organizations and institutions working toward stronger communities.

Why N.J. needs the U.S.-Mexico-Canada agreement

“I know where you were born!”

I find myself yelling that each time I see an Audi Q5 on the Garden State Parkway these days. Because I know the answer.

That birthplace is Puebla, Mexico. Better known for the May 5, 1862, defeat of the French Army that started the Cinco de Mayo tradition, Puebla is also home to a $1.3 billion manufacturing facility that employs 5,000 people and produces more than 500 Audi Q5s every day.

It was on the floor of this facility earlier this spring, as part of a recent bipartisan delegation hosted by the U.S.-Mexico Foundation, that I saw firsthand how interconnected the economies of the United States and Mexico are, and how much New Jersey stands to benefit from the pending U.S.-Mexico-Canada Agreement, or USMCA.

The Audis taking shape before our eyes, and the Volkswagens produced just down the road, are shipped all over the world, many of them entering the United States at ports in Newark, Bayonne and Elizabeth. These imports currently come to New Jersey at a lower price, thus expanding consumer choices. The same is true for the other Mexican products Americans purchase — from household appliances and medical equipment to tequila, avocados and baked goods.

This trade relationship is, of course, very good for Mexicans. The thousands employed by Audi, Volkswagen, and countless other international companies have helped stabilize the country’s economy and contributed to a sizeable middle class. Both immigration hawks and doves can find something to like in a more sustainable Mexican economy, which invariably relieves pressure at the U.S.-Mexico border.

At the same time, New Jersey exports nearly $2 billion worth of products to Mexico, plus another $7 billion worth of products to Canada. The two countries are New Jersey’s largest trading partners, accounting for nearly a third of our state’s total exports. Mexico, Canada and another 200 countries purchase a range of New Jersey products — from the chemicals developed in laboratories in Princeton and Bridgewater to the aerospace technology manufactured in Edison and Parsippany. Exports alone account for 6.8% of our state’s GDP.

Trade is wired throughout New Jersey’s economy — we are the 13th-biggest exporter by total dollar value and in the Top 10 for fastest-growing export states — which makes us a critical stakeholder in the current trade debate.

Manipulation of the U.S.-Mexico trade relationship through tariffs starting at 5 percent and possibly growing to 25 percent will, of course, increase the price New Jerseyans pay for an Audi in Paramus or an avocado in Asbury Park — to say nothing of the inevitable retaliation on the products New Jersey exports to Mexico.

The extent to which this government intervention would influence consumer behavior is hard to measure, in part because the size, scope and time horizon for tariffs have been uncertain as of late.

New Jersey’s elected representatives will criticize these tariffs, but they should go a step further and affirmatively support a solution. The USMCA, which the leaders of the United States, Mexico and Canada signed in November 2018, needs a vote in Congress.

Swift passage of this agreement would not only safeguard the 1 million New Jersey jobs directly or indirectly supported by trade, but also bring key elements of NAFTA into the 21st century, particularly around the digital economy and worker and environmental protections.

The USMCA ensures that more parts of automobiles originate in the United States, Mexico or Canada; it opens Canadian dairy markets to the United States; and it strengthens intellectual property and copyright protections for technologies that didn’t exist at the time of NAFTA.

The USMCA’s greatest strength is, however, what it preserves about NAFTA: abundant, affordable choices for American consumers and the ability for places like New Jersey to confidently pursue foreign markets for our products and services.

Opening new markets to trade has worked before. Since NAFTA became law in 1994, New Jersey’s exports to Mexico alone increased by more than 400 percent. Now is the time to reaffirm one of the world’s largest and most successful trading relationships.

The USMCA will provide a critical and very significant boost to the economies in the United States, Mexico, and Canada — and it will remind us all that trade, with its natural ebbs and flows, is an inevitable and powerful force for good.

Stro adds FedEx building in Roselle to its portfolio

The Stro Companies announced Thursday it has added an industrial building in Roselle to its 275,000-square-foot portfolio.

The portfolio is a combination of acquisitions over the past six months, Stro said.

The 35,000-square-foot building, located at 450 West First Ave., is a stand-alone property fully-leased to FedEx.

“We are excited to expand our holdings in Union County, increasing our presence towards the port area, and are thrilled to have a credit tenant like FedEx here for the foreseeable future,” Zach La Motta, associate at Stro, said

La Motta said the building is immediately off of Route 28 and the Garden State Parkway and is within close access to routes 22, 82, 9 and interstates 78 and 95.

“Since the end of December 2018, we have added seven industrial buildings in prime Northern New Jersey submarkets to our portfolio totaling approximately 275,000 square feet,”  Mitchel Kay, chief operating officer and general counsel, Stro, said. “It is a true testament to the outstanding team we currently have in place. Additionally, we particularly want to thank Thomas Kirczow of NAI DiLeo-Bram for bringing us this opportunity.”

The deal, Stro said, was financed through Signature Bank.

“Signature’s team of John Zieran, Zach Bermudez and Lubna Syed were a pleasure to work with,” James Keenoy, director of real estate capital markets, Stro, said. “Understanding our attractive cost basis as well as the property’s unique attributes, Signature was able to structure around an impending rollover and provide a sensible financing solution.”

Financial terms were not disclosed.

NJ Towns Graded In 2019, From A+ To D-: How Did Our Community Do?

Here’s a report card you should be paying attention to. And you may want to think twice about living in a place that was graded with a D-.

Or maybe even a place that got a C- (Deal? Really? At the Jersey Shore?).

Niche has come out with its new 2019 rankings of the “Best Places to Live” in New Jersey, but for at least the third year in row, it took a bit of a unique approach: The consumer rankings service assigned a grade, on an A+-to-D- scale, to almost every town in the state.

Sixty communities received A+ grades, topped with towns such as Princeton, Edison and Westfield.

Nine communities received D+ grades or lower grades, including Bridgeton, the Brookfield section of White Township and the Port Norris section of Commercial Township in Cumberland County. The list included sections of towns and city neighborhoods.

The biggest surprise was Deal, perhaps, because it’s known as a high-end community north of Asbury Park. Here is what one commenter wrote: “The entire town is on or close to the beach. Most of the 9-month (college) rentals are fairly expensive compared to other towns in the area, but Deal is a safe and a great location in regards to the school and local nightlife.”

To arrive at the rankings, Niche.com took several factors into consideration, such as the quality of local schools, crime rates, housing trends, employment statistics and access to amenities.

Niche created a standardized score for each factor, and after weighting each factor, an overall score was calculated, which was again given a new standardized score.

Finally, Niche.com created a numerical ranking and assigned grades for each place. Click here to read more about the methodology.
