Fulton Group on the Move with Major Expansion Project

Pulaski-based manufacturer outgrowing its headquarters
By Lou Sorendo


    Fulton Group NA, Inc., in the town of Richland is embarking on an $11.25 million project as part of an ongoing expansion.

     

    Fulton Group intends to renovate its Pulaski headquarters and purchase a new facility in East Syracuse with more than $2.5 million in grants and other incentives.

     

    The manufacturer will invest in machinery, equipment, and research and development activities to create new products.

     

    Fulton Group researches, engineers, manufactures and sells heat transfer equipment for a wide range of commercial and industrial applications.

     

    Fulton Group was awarded $2.5 million from Empire State Development to support the project.

     

    L. Michael Treadwell, executive director of Operation Oswego County, said there are multiple components to the project.

     

    “Part of the project will be in Onondaga County and part will be in Oswego County,” he said.

     

    “They are going to be making improvements to their facility and adding new equipment in Pulaski, but they are also acquiring an existing 30,000-square-foot building in East Syracuse,” Treadwell noted. “They are trying to streamline their operations.”

     

    In 2012, Fulton successfully completed a major facility expansion at its headquarters on Centerville Road in Pulaski.

     

    The expansion features “real high bay space” where the company constructs its heavy-duty commercial boiler systems, Treadwell said.

     

    “Because the company is running out of space in Pulaski, it is shifting some production away from the Pulaski facility and into a larger facility that can accommodate large projects,” he added.

     

    “It’s an efficiency type of thing that will create jobs at both facilities,” Treadwell said. “It will help the company become a stronger manufacturer in Central New York.”

     

    It is expected the expansion will create 27 jobs.
