The developer of part of a Southington distribution company’s expansion said it’s nearing completion of a new multi-level parking structure that will serve more than 200 vehicles.

Ohio-based Geis Companies is building a three-level parking deck for The Pyle Corp., on the A. Duie Pyle site at 87 Aircraft Road.

The parking facility is set to be completed this spring, Geis officials said. It will have 73,000 square feet of parking space with enough deck height at ground level to accommodate interstate semi-trucks.

It’s the second phase of A. Duie Pyle’s larger distribution plant expansion that was approved last year. Phase one was demolition of a former tool-and-die building, and phase two is construction of the parking deck. 

Later phases include building a new 16,477-square-foot maintenance building, 10,140-square-foot terminal expansion for 22 new truck docks, and a proposed renovation of an existing 8,500-square-foot maintenance area for 18 new docks.

The project is expected to be completed by late 2025, town officials said.

Geis is the design build contractor for the 23,789-square-foot parking deck on the former site of the Southington Service Center at the intersection of Airport and Newell roads, less than a mile from the Queen Street interchange with I-84.  The development team also includes concrete work by Turner Brothers.

Employees of A. Duie Pyle can use the lower level of the garage, and the design can accommodate tractors parked underneath during the winter months, Geis officials said.

The Pyle Corp, based out of West Chester, Pennsylvania, has multiple A. Duie Pyle company locations throughout the Northeast and provides transportation and logistics services in the southeast, midwest, west coast and Canada. 

The family-owned business started in 1924, and now has distribution capacities at 27 service centers and 18 warehouse facilities with more than 4.4 million square feet of space.
