A.J. Letizio Sales & Marketing Inc. Celebrates Grand Opening of its New National Corporate Headquarters in Windham, New Hampshire
A.J. Letizio Sales & Marketing celebrated the grand opening of its new 20,000 square foot “A.J. Letizio Enterprise Center” on September 6th, 2019, with a crowd of nearly 400 guests on hand. Located on Enterprise Drive in Windham, New Hampshire, the newly built facility will serve as the national headquarters for the A.J. Letizio Sales & Marking Company, a leading sales agency for Retail Consumer Packaged Goods as well as Foodservice and Disposable Goods throughout the eastern United States. The company operated a smaller facility at the same location over the last 19 years but demolished that facility in 2018 to build the larger facility in its place, in accordance with the company’s 20 strategic plan.
Among the numerous guests on hand were local and state and county officials, several Senators and Representatives from both New Hampshire and Massachusetts, members of the Massachusetts and New Hampshire Food Associations, Greater Boston Food Bank as well as Community Development and Chamber of Commerce officials. Five generations of the Letizio family joined Al Letizio, Jr and wife Patti, close friends and neighbors, clients and customers from across the United States were on hand on the bright sunny summer morning, where hundreds assembled for the blessing of the building by Father Brian Kennedy of Saint Matthew Parish, remarks by CEO Al Letizio, Jr. and key note remarks by New Hampshire Governor Chris Sununu who called the new A.J. Letizio facility “perhaps the most technologically advanced facility of its kind in the state.” Al Letizio, Jr. reflected on the company’s history in the food industry dating back to the family meat market in 1912, and the founding of the A.J. Letizio Sales & Marketing in 1988, reminding his more than 75 team members present that although they should all be mindful of the family’s long traditions, that our focus needed to remain on the horizon and on the company’s future, remarking on the company’s more than 50% growth in sales since 2015. “In a world of corporate acquisition and short-term business strategy, we have remained consistent, reliable and resolute over the last 30 plus years. While others are focused on the short term, our decision making is based upon long term partnerships and our 20-year game plan.
Today we celebrate with you, our friends, the grand opening of the new A.J. Letizio Enterprise Center, the new national headquarters of A.J. Letizio Sales & Marketing and the new home for local small business entrepreneurs seeking a professional and collegial environment in which to work and meet.
The new facility features a combination of a historically inspired castle tower and stone walls, to fully appointed offices and meeting spaces accommodating groups up to 105 guests. The state-of-the-art test kitchen was staffed by more than a dozen chefs from the A.J. Letizio Culinary team who provided hand crafted delicacies for hundreds of guests who toured the facility all day long.
