Necco filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection back in April 2018, abruptly ending operations later that year.

Now the Revere, MA location has struck a deal with Amazon, becoming a new distribution center.
The 830,000 square-foot facility is slated to undergo renovations next year, with an anticipated opening date in 2020.
Amazon will create hundreds of part-time and full-time jobs, becoming the city's largest employees.
“This is a leap into Revere’s future as a strong, modernized and prosperous city,” Revere Mayor Brian Arrigo said in a statement. “Amazon’s investment in our community will invigorate the local economy and promote Revere as a place where prominent, innovation-driven businesses are welcome and can thrive.”
