Canadian firm seeks land for Lockport plant

LOCKPORT – The board of the Town of Lockport Industrial Development Agency met behind closed doors Thursday with two representatives of a Canadian company that is interested in constructing a plant in Lockport.

David R. Kinyon, administrative director of the IDA, would not identify the company, but he said the Canadians want to erect a 25,000-square-foot manufacturing, warehouse and distribution facility in the town industrial park off Upper Mountain and Junction roads.

He said the amount of acreage the company would purchase is still subject to negotiation. There are about 20 acres available in the original section of the industrial park, which is being augmented with 91 acres of land the town acquired from General Motors in an eminent domain action.
