Nulife Glass, a recycling specialist based in England, will invest $3.7 million to open its first U.S. facility in Chautauqua County, New York. The company will renovate a 50,000 square foot manufacturing plant in the Town of Sheridan, with plans to create 25 new jobs.
“We are very pleased to locate our first North American expansion in New York State, the Buffalo Niagara region, and specifically Chautauqua County and the Town of Sheridan,” said Nulife owner Simon Greer. “The welcoming business environment that Buffalo Niagara Enterprise introduced us to and the reception we received from our state, regional and local partners was tremendous. Everybody we talked to did what they said they were going to do and now here we are,” Greer added.
Buffalo Niagara Enterprise said it provided assistance with site selection, access to incentives and service providers. The agency also helped navigating state regulatory agencies. The Chautauqua County Industrial Development Agency and the county’s Department of Economic Development also played important roles in site selection and assisting the company with the permitting process for their new facility.
“This is the type of innovative technology and creative application of advanced manufacturing that I believe will strengthen our regional economy in the years ahead,” said Buffalo Niagara Enterprise President and CEO Thomas Kucharski. “Successfully attracting this project to Chautauqua County sends a strong message to entrepreneurs like Nulife around the globe that New York State can successfully compete for your business and that upstate communities across the Buffalo Niagara region want to be home to your manufacturing facilities,” Kucharski added.
We are very pleased to welcome Nulife’s investment, job creation and their state of the art technology to Chautauqua County,” said County Executive Gregory Edwards. “The rapidly changing technologies and new consumer product offerings that have created this worldwide environmental challenge have also created new business opportunities and new markets that will be satisfied in part at this redeveloped building in the Town of Sheridan. It is very exciting to know that our county will be home to these exciting new advancements in manufacturing and recycling,” Edwards added.
