GS Precision eyes Chesterfield property
CHESTERFIELD, N.H. — Representatives from GS Precision will be in front of the Chesterfield Planning Board on Aug. 20 at 7:30 p.m., requesting a change of use to convert the Prospect Park Press building on Route 9 into a facility for assembly and manufacturing.
According to documents filed at the Chesterfield Town Hall, even though the building is in a commercial/industrial zone, a special exception is required to convert it for GS Precision's purposes.
No changes are expected to the site or building. When up and running, it will employ eight to 10 people at the start, with another five jobs in the future. The facility is expected to operate from 7 a.m. to 5 p.m., Monday through Friday.
The Prospect Park Press building is actually located on Spaulding Hill Road, but is visible from Route 9, on a hill above Pete's Tire Barn on the south side of the road.
According to the documents, there will be an average of eight vehicle deliveries throughout the day. "The primary delivery vehicles used by GS Precision are small delivery vans delivering products to their facilities in Keene and Brattleboro," state the documents. "In addition, UPS and FedEx will be making regular deliveries. On occasion a tractor trailer may make a material delivery to the site."
The documents state the facility will house computerized machine tools that will produce "precision parts primarily for the aerospace, medical and automotive industries."
The building is currently owned by PP Brothers, whose principal is listed as Pierre Saba, who also owns the Riverside Hotel on Riverside Drive and the Irving Gas Station on Route 9. There is a for sale sign posted on the hill in front of the building.
Two calls to GS Precision were not returned for comment.
