QualityDoor.com's Agile Solution in Retrofitting Electrified Door Hardware for Amazon Building Remodel



Amazon's relentless expansion into industrial spaces on Long Island led to the leasing of a newly constructed 246,500-square-foot warehouse and distribution building at 90 Ruland Road in Melville. Developed by Hartz Mountain Industries on the former Newsday site, the facility signified a significant addition to Amazon's infrastructure.


The challenge presented to QualityDoor.com was formidable: retrofit new electrified door hardware (access control) into existing door openings within a 3-4 week timeframe. The project involved not only adapting existing doors and frames but also ensuring cost-effectiveness. Integration of new locks, exit devices, and trims into the existing key system added another layer of complexity.

The custom mod shop at QualityDoor.com played a pivotal role. Using this facility, the team custom-made and modified doors and frames to meet the specific requirements of the Amazon Building Remodel.
