The company announced in September that it plans to invest $12 million to convert its former manufacturing space in Lewiston into a distribution center and offices. The renovated facility will have up to 90% of its power needs met by a 620-panel, ground-mounted solar array.

The 105,000 square-foot facility will be certified at the Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design's (LEED) "gold" level and will qualify as a Maine Advanced Building. Geiger also anticipates hiring 25 to 50 new employees over the next three to five years.
