DeWITT, N.Y. — Cryomech Inc. says it has completed the construction and relocation to its new facility at 6682 Moore Road in the town of DeWitt.
It previously operated in a nearby location at 113 Falso Dr. in DeWitt.
Cryomech’s new 76,000-square-foot facility houses all of the company’s manufacturing and machinery. Crews finished work on the close to $17 million project in just over a year.
The firm held its groundbreaking ceremony at the 14-acre construction site in early October 2019.
Empire State Development (ESD) assisted the expansion with a $600,000 capital grant, and up to $600,000 through the Excelsior Jobs program in exchange for job-creation commitments, per an Oct. 3, 2019 ESD news release.
VIP Structures of Syracuse handled the construction and design work on the project. The firm also coordinated electrical work from DEMCO of DeWitt and plumbing by Woodcock and Armani, also of DeWitt.
JPW Riggers provided and installed all the steel for the building and Sedgwick Business Interiors furnished the office space.
Koffee King Vending & Food Services also handled construction on the employee vending area, Cryomech said.
“After many years of rapid growth, this new facility offers the opportunity for Cryomech’s outside to match the energy inside,” Tabitha Sebastino, business development manager at Cryomech, said. “The expansion will allow us to have stronger collaboration within our internal teams. It also gives us the opportunity to develop better information and knowledge sharing, which is at the foundation of what makes Cryomech great.”
Cryomech believes it now has the space and infrastructure to “plan for the future and strategically grow with their customers at the pace they demand,” per its news release.
Founded in 1963, Cryomech develops and manufactures high-performance cryogenic equipment, including cryocoolers and laboratory-scale helium management systems. The company develops products that cater to the specific needs of researchers and industries in a wide array of fields, including medical, agricultural, energy and aerospace. Half of its sales are for highly custom-designed products, ESD said.
