Nassau County Executive Edward P. Mangano today announced that a Queens County-based cabinet manufacturer, New York Vanity Manufacturing, will move its entire operation and 25 jobs to the former site of Stein M. Cosmetics Company – located at 10 Henry Street in the Village of Freeport.
County Executive Mangano stated, “Nassau County’s economic development team is working hard to create new jobs and opportunities for our residents. Attracting New York Vanity Manufacturing, along with our success of attracting other companies such as Hain Celestrial, is good news for Nassau County as they provide new employment opportunities for our residents.”
Through a public-private partnership, real estate company AJM Capital recovered approximately $325,000 in back taxes for Nassau County residents through the sale of the property as it had faced real estate tax delinquencies dating back to 2007. Prior to such conveyance, AJM Capital remediated the vacant property so that it could once again serve as home to a local employer. With oversight provided by the Nassau County Department of Health, New York State Department of Environmental Conservation, and United States Environmental Protection Agency, AJM Capital performed environmental remediation at the site as cosmetic chemicals had contaminated the soil and dry well.
