Grant offsets energy infrastructure costs of $5.5 million project
National Grid has approved an economic development grant in the amount of up to $180,000, which Mayer Bros. Apple Products Inc. will use toward a 40,400 square-foot expansion of its Barker manufacturing plant.
National Grid's grant will be used toward costs related to installation of an upgraded electric service for Mayer Bros.' $5.5-million capital project, which includes a new juice bottling line. Additionally, the company plans to add a warehouse distribution area and three additional loading docks. The new bottling line will allow the company to streamline operations and better meet customer demand.
"National Grid is always looking for opportunities to assist companies with expansions such as the one at Mayer Bros., which turned out to be a perfect candidate to be supported through our electric capital investment incentive program," National Grid regional manager Ken Kujawa said.
National Grid's electric capital investment incentive program provides funding to businesses to offset costs associated with upgrading utility infrastructure to accommodate a business expansion or new construction project. The program supports economic development projects in National Grid's upstate New York service territory.
