Company Connections

Gooding Co., a Lockport specialty printer, reported the company has nearly finished construction on a 10,000-square-foot addition to its current production space, an 83 percent increase, at its facility at 5568 Davison Road in Lockport. The $700,000 project includes the purchase of new equipment, and will result in the hiring of an additional six new employees, in addition to the 38 it currently employs. Gooding specializes in providing printed packaging solutions for consumer products companies and in the printing of folded Inserts and Outserts for the pharmaceutical and medical industries, as mandated in the 1938 United States Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act. The Town of Lockport Industrial Development Agency provided financial incentives to assist in the expansion.
