UTICA, N.Y. — Human Technologies says its Environmental Services division is “working overtime” amid the coronavirus pandemic.

In response to what it calls “ unprecedented need for additional services,” the Utica–based nonprofit, which creates employment for people with disabilities, says it is aggressively recruiting new workers and adding hours and weekend shifts at the Environmental Services division

So far, the division has added six new employees and will likely need more. It is one of the largest private janitorial companies in upstate New York with more than 200 employees and $11 million in annual revenue, per Human Technologies.

The Environmental Services division says it has procured CDC-approved chemicals and is providing enhanced disinfection services at more than 100 sites across New York state.

“We are taking proactive measures to ensure the health and safety of our employees and customers by strictly following the CDC cleaning guidelines in regards to cleaning and disinfecting,” Frank Castellano, director of Environmental Services, said in a statement. “Our employees realize they are on the frontline of this effort and have really stepped up for the good of their communities. I can’t say enough good things about them.”

 Locally, Human Technologies cleans 17 Oneida County office buildings, the Air Force Research Lab in Rome, the Alexander Pirnie Federal Building & U.S. Courthouse in Utica, 12 Mohawk Valley Health System medical offices, and dozens of other sites. Outside the Mohawk Valley, its customers include U.S. courthouses in Buffalo and Binghamton, CENTRO facilities in Syracuse, the Southern Tier Welcome Center in Kirkwood, and Norwich Pharmaceuticals.

 Human Technologies, established in 1954, employs 330 people across New York state, Pennsylvania, Delaware, and northern Virginia and generates more than $60 million in annual revenue.
