Investment Complements "Central NY Rising" - The Region's Comprehensive Strategy to Revitalize Communities and Grow the Economy

Governor Andrew M. Cuomo today announced that plastics product manufacturer Dutchland Plastics has expanded its operations into the Village of Canastota, Madison County. The company today officially opened its new, 50,000 square-foot facility on Barlow Street. The expansion will facilitate the creation of at least 42 new full-time jobs over the next two years; 23 positions will be retained. Dutchland Plastics, the country's leading contract manufacturer of custom rotationally molded or "rotomolded" plastics products, had considered moving its operations in Central New York out of state but elected to stay in New York due to provided incentives.

"Dutchland Plastics has a long history in Central New York and this investment and expansion proves the company's continued commitment to the area," Governor Cuomo said. "The new, well-paying jobs that will be created over the next few years will contribute to the region's continued economic growth as Central New York continues to rise."

"The canal community of Canastota has a rich history, and New York State is investing to ensure progress for a prosperous future," said Lieutenant Governor Kathy Hochul. "Dutchland Plastics' decision to expand with a new facility in the village will create additional job opportunities and spur economic growth in the area. The Central New York region is rising with state investments to help companies like Dutchland Plastics grow and to continue to attract new businesses and visitors to the area."
