Utica Converters Manufacturing
West Utica Brownfield Site Expansion
After years of legal and environmental delays, finally in the year 2000 the City of Utica demolished the abandoned factory and prepared the site for re-development. We teamed with Butler Real Estate to offer a Design/Build-Lease project that was ultimately accepted by the City, the NYS D.E.C., and Utica Converters. The 96,000 square-foot project was completed in less than 6 months and a month ahead of schedule.
Utica Converters, a subsidiary of Goodyear Tires of North America, produces polyester cord materials used in tires, and will add several jobs due to this expansion.
