More jobs coming to Albany County
COLONIE -- A technological leader in the venting industry is expanding and and keeping its production operations and jobs in the Capitol Region.
M&G DuraVent, Inc., which manufactures venting systems for gas appliances, has moved its operation from Albany to Colonie.
The move allows DuraVent to keep its current 58 person workforce and will add over 100 new jobs.
Governor Cuomo is pleased that these jobs are remaining in New York.
"DuraVent's decision to expand in Albany County and bring jobs here to New York State is great news for the Capital Region," Governor Cuomo said. "Today's announcement is yet another demonstration that businesses across the nation are once again seeing New York State as a place to invest and create jobs."
"Everyone is very excited," said M&G DuraVent Albany Vice President and General Manager Michael Wolfe. "It's a first rate location that gives us the space to expand into the future, take on the production of PolyPro, and create new additional jobs."
As part of the expansion of its venting systems manufacturing plant in the Capital Region, DuraVent has leased and renovated a 140,000 square-foot facility on Jupiter Lane in the Town of Colonie. The new facility will be more than double in size from its previous 65,000 square-foot location on Pearl Street, allowing the Albany facility to assume manufacturing responsibilities previously done in California and Mississippi.
The new facility will also be the future home to M&G DuraVent's manufacturing processes of PolyPro®, an environmentally safe and engineered alternative for condensing gas appliances. Engineered for venting, PolyPro is 100 percent recyclable, contains no toxic or carcinogenic materials, chlorides or heavy metals, and does not release hazardous gases during combustion.
