Another time for significant growth and physical expansion. A partnership with Xerox vastly expanded our counterbalance opportunities and expertise. The development of a hood latch mechanism for Ford Motor Company, and the fabrication of aluminum extruded couplers for high end glass furniture all required electroplating and anodizing. As a result a 45,000 sq. ft. plating and waste treatment plant was constructed on property across the river from the original plant AND a 67,000 sq. ft. assembly and shipping facility was constructed on a 60 acre site on Allen Street in Falconer, NY.
