A local wholesale beer distributor will be moving its headquarters from York City to a larger facility in Wrightsville.

Ace Distributing is planning to move into the 126,000-square-foot facility, currently under construction, at 100 Mifflin Drive during the spring of 2017, according to Nate Fochtman, vice president of business development.

Fochtman said the decision is related to recent growth and places the company squarely between its two largest markets, York and Lancaster counties.

Ace Distributing has been operating out of its facility at 1800 Pennsylvania Ave. since 1986, he said.

Construction at Ace Distributing's new headquarters in Wrightsville is expected to be completed by spring 2017.

The company employs 110 people at its headquarters, Fochtman said, and the larger facility will allow it to expand the employee base in the future, though no additional positions have been announced.

The Wrightsville building will feature a 15,300-square-foot cooler and 10 additional delivery bays, according to a company news release.
