"A couple years ago, we began looking for a new site. Retention of our employees and staying in the state of New York, were key to the site selection. Fortunately, we found a site within a 15-minute drive of our current location, which will be the new home for our fabrication facility. We know we have an excellent site and location to attract the talent and creativity we need to successfully design, manufacture and distribute our EJ product lines." Project Description.
