U.S. Gypsum gets OK for $23M upgrade in Genesee County

Rochester Business Journal
July 11, 2014

Genesee County economic developers have approved a final resolution for U.S. Gypsum Corp.’s $23 million upgrade of its Maple Avenue paper mill in Oakfield, and a new local labor policy, officials announced Friday.

The board of directors for the county’s Economic Development Center approved the measures at a meeting Thursday.

The local labor policy stipulates that 90 percent of non-management construction labor on projects whose construction costs exceed $5 million and that receive incentives from the GCEDC be done by workers within the local labor area.

The area is comprised of Genesee, Monroe, Orleans, Livingston, Wayne, Ontario, Wyoming, Seneca, Yates, Niagara, Erie, Chautauqua, Cattaraugus and Allegany counties, officials said.

“We do not believe it is unreasonable to ask companies that receive incentives and benefits from our agency to hire locally,” Chairman Wolcott Hinchey said in a statement.
