SCHROEPPEL, N.Y. — Daldrop SBB, a German company with operations in both Salina and DeWitt, is building a new manufacturing facility at the L. Michael Treadwell Oswego County Industrial Park (OCIP) in Schroeppel.
The firm plans to consolidate the Salina and DeWitt locations into the new Oswego County site once it is operational later this year, Benjamin Morrow, Syracuse operations manager, tells CNYBJ in an email message.
Daldrop SBB, a Daldrop Group company, is a cleanroom manufacturer for pharmaceutical industries, which has been in operation for more than 70 years, per the Daldrop announcement.
The new site marks the largest expansion outside of Germany in the Daldrop Group’s 70-year history and builds on the success of its SHELMEQ cleanroom systems within the pharmaceutical industry
Empire State Development (ESD), Operation Oswego County Inc., and CenterState CEO have provided support for the project. ESD is offering a grant and an Excelsior jobs program incentive, Morrow tells CNYBJ, noting that the firm is committed to adding at least 20 new jobs.
“As a global leader in GMP Pharmaceutical cleanrooms for decades, I am very proud to bring manufacturing jobs to upstate New York. Soon Daldrop will be able to say, ‘Made in Germany and the United States,’ thanks to the investments and support from our local, regional and state partners,” Mike Sullivan, president of Daldrop U.S. operations, said in a news release.
The new Oswego County facility is slated to include 40,000 square feet of manufacturing capabilities and will adhere to LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) construction standards.
Additionally, Daldrop Group has committed to partnering with local organizations, such as the Train, Develop, Optimize (TDO) and the Board of Corporative Educational Services (BOCES), to lead training sessions in coordination with area workforce partners and communities to continue fostering employment opportunities in Oswego County.
