A Groundbreaking Ceremony was held on Wednesday, May 4, 2016. for Uniprop AM, LLC.

Uniprop AM, LLC purchased approximately 14 acres of land fronting CT-229 (Middle Street) within the Southeast Bristol Business Park at a cost of $703,040. Connecticut Portable Storage LLC, which operates as the Connecticut/Western Massachusetts franchise of the portable storage container company PODS, will occupy the facility.

Connecticut Portable Storage will merge two PODS distribution operations located elsewhere in Connecticut and move all operations to Bristol.

Uniprop cited the support that his company received from City of Bristol staff was as a key factor in his decision to locate in Bristol.

The project is particularly important, added Justin Malley, Executive Director of the Bristol Development Authority, because Connecticut Portable Storage will occupy the largest, most high-profile building lot in the business park.

“Over the last few years we have built momentum in the Southeast Bristol Business Park after welcoming CMI Specialty Products and Precision Threaded Products years ago,” he said. “We recently brought on GMN USA to develop Lot #4, followed by a planned expansion of CMI Specialty Products, and now invite Uniprop and Connecticut Portable Storage to begin construction of one of the largest distribution buildings in the area.”
