Fulton Companies has been named the recipient of $349,000 in the state of New York’s strategic plans to stimulate the economy and spur job growth. The grant is part of a competitive funding round for Regional Economic Development Councils (REDC) held across the state by Gov. Andrew Cuomo.
As one of several grant announced in the state’s funding initiatives, the funding will focus on projects tied to growing the workforce in Pulaski, N.Y. Fulton’s five-year plan is to add approximately 50 new local jobs, according to Fulton CFO Kevin LaMontagne.
Projects to support job growth include expansion of product lines, creating lower emissions products, and a wider range of large boiler manufacturing. Opportunities are anticipated for engineers, drafting professionals, programmers, and production professionals.
Another round of New York State competitive funding is anticipated in 2012.
