WHEATFIELD – The New York Power Authority last week granted 300 kilowatts of low-cost electricity from the Niagara Power Project to Saint-Gobain Ceramics & Plastics for an expansion project at its Wheatfield plant.
The company plans to invest $4.5 million in the project, which will erect a 40,000-square-foot addition to its plant by December 2017 to add a new product line. Seven new jobs are projected to be created.
Saint-Gobain, a French-based multinational corporation with operations in 64 countries, employs 1,240 people in New York State. It is marking its 350th anniversary this year, tracing its history back to a mirror company founded in Paris in 1665.
