Auburn (WSYR-TV) -- Some new jobs are on their way to Central New York. Currier Plastics in Cayuga County
is about to nearly double the size of its manufacturing operations.
The expansion will create 50 new jobs over the next five years and will help the company retain 100 jobs that would have been lost had the project been implemented elsewhere.
The expansion is thanks to one million dollars in Excelsior tax credits and a grant from Empire State Development.
The company plans to start construction this spring, and the project will be largely completed in 2013. Equipment purchases and additional construction, including renovations to its current facility, will occur through 2016.
Currier Plastics specializes in custom blow molding and custom injection molding.
