Cryocooler designer and manufacturer Cryomech had broken ground on its new 76,000 square foot facility in DeWitt, New York.
The custom-designed building will provide space for continued growth and innovation in the cryogenics industry and includes space for future expansion plans.
It is located just blocks away from Cryomech’s current location at 6682 Moore Road.
In a speech at the groundbreaking ceremony, Chief Business Officer Kelly Wypych said, “Today stands for more than simply putting shovels into the ground. Today represents our commitment to our customers in over 50 countries on all seven continents, most of whom are pioneering groundbreakers in ultra-low temperature technology and research.”
“Today represents our commitment to this region, which has always been our home and is the ground that we want to stand on. It represents our commitment to growing local jobs and to maintaining our position as a groundbreaking provider of cryogenic technology.”
Cryomech said it plans to grow staff in both manufacturing and administration. According to the current build schedule, the US company hopes to be in the new facility by the end of 2020.
Headquartered in Syracuse, New York, Cryomech was founded in 1963 by Professor William Gifford who saw an opportunit to develop and market cryogenic systems while working at Syracuse University.
