Taunton, MA – Quality Beverage and Dacon Corporation broke ground recently on a $1.8 million expansion to its Taunton headquarters. The event was led by Conrad Wetterau, Quality Beverage’s president and CEO. Also attending were Senator Marc Pacheco, State Representative Shaunna O’Connell, Mayor Tom Hoye, Dick Shaffer of Taunton Development, and employees from both organizations.
This is Dacon’s third endeavor with QB, having previously renovated Quality’s Auburn distribution center and a $4.6 million rebranding/expansion of the Taunton headquarters to modernize aesthetics and enhance corporate culture.
This project consists of a ground-up, 10,500sf warehouse addition to the south side of Quality’s headquarters facility. Designed to match the existing facades and accommodate future equipment upgrades, this high-stud warehouse maximizes vertical space on the property.
Serviced by one tailboard loading dock, the building’s main electrical transformer required a relocation to make room for the addition.
Established in 1994, Quality Beverage is now the state’s largest independently owned beer distributor servicing over 2,500 restaurant and retail accounts.
Conrad Wetterau, president and CEO of QB, said, “This is the last expansion on the current site so it made sense to engage Dacon again for this project. The additional warehouse space will accommodate QB’s mission to lead future growth in the beverage business here in Massachusetts.”
“It is a pleasure partnering with Quality Beverage. Their focus on individual dignity, value of community and the contribution of independent businesses to America’s economic fabric are values that resonate with Dacon’s,” states Armand Souliere, COO.
