A Herkimer County company is expanding.

Feldmeier Equipment of Little Falls has broken ground on a new 50,000 square foot building that will result in 80 new jobs and the retention of nearly 300 existing jobs.

Governor Cuomo says the expansion is yet another testament to the rise of upstate New York as a destination for growth in private sector jobs.

Feldmeier Equipment, which makes stainless steel storage and processing equipment, is also upgrading machinery and equipment at its Syracuse headquarters.
