Operations at 861 Sloan Avenueceased on October 31, 2014. The buildinghas since been vacant.

The site is being marketed for sale on behalf ofCongoleum Corporation by the NAI Mertz team led by Jeffrey Licht, SIOR, seniorvice president and Fred Meyer, SIOR, director of corporate services. The team is being assisted by NAI Mertz vicepresidents Adam Lashner and Jonathan Klear.
