PULASKI, N.Y. — Fulton Cos. was recently named the recipient of a Jobs award in recognition of its investment in the creation and retention of jobs in central New York.

The annual award, presented by Operation Oswego County in New York, was presented to Fulton for its contribution to the regional economy by investing in a $13.5 million, 112,000-square-foot expansion of its manufacturing and office complex located within the geographic region served by the economic and job development authority.

“We are honored to receive the Jobs award,” said Kevin LaMontagne, chief financial officer of the Fulton Cos. “Through their tireless hard work and dedication, Fulton’s growing workforce is the single biggest contributor to its success.”

In tandem with the completion of its new manufacturing and office facility, Fulton has created more than 50 new manufacturing jobs, and continues to grow.

“Fulton is extremely fortunate to be headquartered in Oswego County,” LaMontagne said. “We are able to recruit good people.”

The Operation Oswego County group is governed by a volunteer, 30-member board of directors comprised of local business and community leaders who strive for economic growth policies.

The addition of jobs and space provides Fulton with the capabilities to keep up with business demands. It has allowed for the manufacture of larger products in the commercial and industrial heat transfer market, and broadened the scope for custom order fulfillment.
