The owner of Drescher Paper Box is seeking to downsize its space and relocate the company's operations, and it has put its facility in Buffalo up for sale.
Drescher, which was founded in 1867, is a manufacturer of jigsaw puzzles, game boards and setup boxes. Originally named Charles A. Drescher & Son's, the company was acquired in 1978 by J. Baird Langworthy and renamed. It added die-cut puzzles to its product line with the 1979 purchase of Tuco Puzzles, and then moved that production to the Broadway site in 1989.
The company — which is now owned and run by J. Baird's son, John — no longer needs as much space as it has, so it hired Pyramid Brokerage Co. brokers John Ticco III and Michael Demyan to seek out a buyer for the 46,193-square-foot building, which sits on 1.19 acres at 459 Broadway. “We understand the lack of warehouse buildings available for sale in our market and see this as a great opportunity for a business to grow and/or relocate their operations to a burgeoning area,” Ticco said.
