NORWICH – If Amphenol Aerospace and Industrial in Sidney chooses a site to rebuild in Chenango County, it will most likely be in the Bainbridge area.
Commerce Chenango executives are working closely with the area’s major employer to locate a 20-acre minimum site upon which to build a 330,000 square foot building, in a place that doesn’t flood.
Amphenol’s Sidney manufacturing facility has been severely damaged by not one, but two major flooding events in the past five years. The company paid approximately $40 million to get back in business the last time, according to Commerce Chenango President Steve Craig.
“They’re not going to go through that again,” he said this morning.
