The new 275,869-square-foot distribution facility is being built at 2130 Rohr Road in Obetz. The facility will be a validated, temperature-controlled warehouse with LED motion-activated lighting throughout.
“We look forward to welcoming West-Ward Pharmaceuticals to the CreekSide Industrial Center,” said Joel S.

“West-Ward Pharmaceuticals is pleased to partner with The Pizzuti Companies on this state-of-the-art warehouse. The location is ideally located in the country and situated near major transportation arteries,” said Frank Savastano, Vice President Supply Chain, West-Ward Pharmaceuticals. “Adding this warehouse and distribution center ensures the West-Ward supply chain has the capacity to meet its immediate needs and growth objectives.”
The West-Ward facility design and construction team includes Red Architects, BRH Group, Jezerinac Geers and Pizzuti Construction Services. Pizzuti Vice President of Development Phil Rasey represented The Pizzuti Companies in the lease transaction; Jeff Lee of JWL Real Estate represented West-Ward Pharmaceuticals.
