Last week Empire State Development announced that industrial cutter manufacturer Pearl Technologies is ready to grow its operations in the Town of Savannah.
Pearl Technologies will renovate and upgrade its Seneca Street headquarters and manufacturing facilities, moving a portion of its operations to a second building already located on the company’s industrial campus. The project will facilitate the production of industrial knives replacing manufacturing that is currently being outsourced overseas.
“New York is committed to a supporting the statewide growth and success of innovative, high-tech manufacturers. Pearl Technologies’ decision to expand its Wayne County operations will allow the plastics industry leader to service more global clients, while creating top-quality, 21st century jobs that will fuel the Finger Lakes regional economy for years to come,” Empire State Development Acting Commissioner and President & CEO-designate Eric Gertler said.
Pearl Technologies President Jane Coyne thanked the state for its investment in its effort to grow. “This investment reflects both the strength of our existing business and our commitment to Savannah, NY. I’d like to thank the state of New York for their supporting in enabling us to grow,” she said.
Sen. Pam Helming and Assemblyman Brian Manktelow both shared their excitement for the expansion. The two represent Wayne County in state government.
“Pearl Technologies is a leading innovator in the plastics industry and a valued local employer. Thank you to President Jane Coyne and the entire company for its increased investment and commitment to creating additional job opportunities in Savannah and Wayne County. Thank you to Empire State Development, Wayne County and Brian Pincelli, and all those supporting this project and our small business job creators,” Helming said.
“This is a great win for Wayne County and our community. Not only do we have a world class leader in the plastics industry, but we have a business choosing to invest and develop in our region. With this growth, Pearl Technologies will be able to serve their already robust clientele in 35 countries and continue to develop patents on the hard work of Wayne County residents. I want to thank you Jane Coyne and the all the Pearl Technologies family for your dedication to our community,” Manktelow added.
