Former Par Pharma Building In Chestnut Ridge Sells For $34.25 Million

6 Ram Ridge RoadThe vacant industrial building at 6 Ram Ridge Road in Chestnut Ridge (63.17-1-8) was sold last week for $34.25 million.

The seller was LG Ram Road, LLC, a Delaware LLC based in Brooklyn, NY. The buyer was Schreiner Real Estate Inc., an arm of the Blauvelt-based Shreiner Group, LP.

The building was the former home of PAR Pharmaceuticals. Par sold the building to LG Ram Road LLC for $19 million in December of 2022.

The Schreiner Group LP is a German family-owned company that manufactures high-tech label parts for healthcare, mobility, general industry and government security. It operates out of 300 Corporate Drive in Blauvelt, and will continue operations there while it builds out the new facility.

Schreiner is working with the Rockland County Industrial Development Agency on a raft of financial benefits, including $335,000 in sales tax exemptions on $4 million of anticipated taxable purchases. It also is working with the IDA to secure long-term PILOT (payment in lieu of taxes) Agreements.

As part of its application, Schreiner stated the 5.2 acre property in Chestnut Ridge will provide more than 100,000 square feet of manufacturing space, with room for expansion, if needed.

The overall project cost of $48.5 million includes $34.5 million for the building acquisition, with $6.1 million in planned building improvements. Schreiner will also invest more than $8 million in manufacturing equipment, with the balance relocated from the Blauvelt facility. The company received an Excelsior Tax Credit of $1.5 million and is seeking an Empire State Development grant for an additional $1.5 million.

Construction is due to begin this year, with completion of the building anticipated in 2025, and the equipping of the facility by 2026.  Schreiner has secured a short-term lease extension of its Blauvelt facility during the buildout of the Chestnut Ridge property.

Schreiner has 82 employees and plans to create at least 52 new jobs over the next five years to accommodate its expansion plans.
