Mohawk Global Logistics Partners with Meyda Lighting to Renovate New Space


YORKVILLE, N.Y. -- Breathing new life into a long vacant building on the main road leading to the terminal at Syracuse, NY-based Hancock International Airport, Mohawk Global Logistics has partnered with Meyda Lighting to help renovate its new space in the former U.S. Air Reservation Center on airport property. Meyda Tiffany Lighting is a Meyda Tiffany company, America's leading manufacturer and designer of decorative and custom lighting.

“We are grateful to the city of Syracuse and the Hancock International Airport for working with us on this project,” said Mohawk’s President and CEO, Gar Grannell. “It’s exciting to partner with Meyda Lighting to help us with this remodeling project.  It’s exciting to have a space that we can grow into, as we continue to expand and add jobs.”

Meyda Tiffany Lighting designed and manufactured custom art glass lighting to meet Mohawk Global Logistics’ specific needs.  Made in the USA for Mohawk, Meyda created the “Moonscape” Collection which features a variety of fixtures designed and crafted with Grey and Clear organic shaped glass with Frit.  Two inverted pendants (model #131351, with a width and length of 26 inches and an overall height ranging from 15 to 67 inches from the ceiling) were installed in the conference room. Two stunning vanity lights (model #131702 with a width of 31 inches, an eight-inch height and a diameter of six inches) and one striking flushmount (131703) were installed in the executive bathrooms.

123 Air Cargo Road, which had sat vacant for nine years, now bustles with the activity of Mohawk’s 60 employees. The company currently occupies 60 percent of the building’s 26,000 square feet and is seeking a tenant for the remaining space.

“Airports continue to grow as centers of economic development, and this is just one example of how an industry like aviation, can foster growth and development outside of the terminal building,” said Aviation Commissioner Christina Reale. “It is not only access to air transportation, but the easy and convenient access to and from major highways, that makes Syracuse Hancock International Airport an ideal location for non-traditional airport growth and development.”

The newly renovated space boasts an impressive training room, where the company will hold its global trade seminars and other educational events for clients and members of the business community. In support of local businesses, Mohawk has also partnered with Central New York-based Harden Furniture, to accent the building’s interior.
