As the name might suggest, BOSS Facility Services is built on superior services. With critical assistance from the IDA, BOSS Facility Services was able to expand upon that mantra—and their job base. The company, formerly based in Ronkonkoma, has made the move to its new, 31,000 square-foot home on 60 Adams Avenue in Hauppauge. The project boasts state-of-the-art training rooms matched with skilled instructors tasked with nurturing the potential of job applicants and providing them with the necessary skill sets to perform in these roles.
In 2018, BOSS, a national leader in the facility maintenance industry, sought out support from the IDA to move its base of operations to Hauppauge. The goal was to create increased job opportunities for Suffolk County Veterans and other individuals in need of quality employment positions.
The growth of BOSS Facility’s economic footprint and overall job base was made possible, in part, by the investment of the Suffolk IDA. To ensure the company had the space needed to design and implement new, inclusive vocational opportunities, the Suffolk IDA authorized the following for BOSS’ new building:
- Property Tax Abatement
- Mortgage Tax Exemptions
- Sales Tax Exemptions
- Connections to resources with other partner agencies
Founded in 2001 by Keith Keingstein, BOSS Facility Services soon morphed into a family affair with Keith’s sister, Kerri, brother, Kevin and their father, Robert, joining the mix. The new 60 Adams Avenue location was outfitted with a training center focused on providing veterans and others seeking valuable job training with the resources and platform to do so.
We are thankful for the IDA’s support as their assistance allows us to remain on Long Island and continue to serve our loyal customer base.
No matter what size the business may be, the Suffolk IDA is equipped to provide the resources and expertise needed to take your business to the next level. The IDA’s investment into BOSS Facility Services is a prime example of how a local, family-owned business can thrive when a partnership is forged with the collective goal of fostering economic development and job creation.
