GREENE More than 250 Southern Tier students and industry-focused officials attended an open house on Friday, Oct. 2 to celebrate Manufacturing Day and help unveil an expansion project totaling more than 47,000 square feet at the Raymond Corporation headquarters located in Greene.
The Chenango-based worldwide leader in logistics support and electric fork truck engineering hosted the community event marking the confluence of the two occasions with a series of proclamations and speeches from dignitaries and leaders at a formal ceremony prior to a guided tour.
The overall expansion was really centered around adding a second-story to the existing building that has become our new operations center which is about 32,000 square feet, said Raymond President and CEO Michael Field. The move to do that actually cleared out space on the production floor allowing us to realign the overall plant layout of more than 60,000 square feet.
