June 30, 2017

ALBANY, NY – From State Senator Tom o’Mara:

“This is positive news for many area workers and their families, and the entire community of Campbell. Nevertheless, it remains critical to keep working closely with the new ownership, Upstate Niagara, to maximize every available opportunity to ensure success, keep expanding the operation, and keep moving toward the ultimate goal of full production capacity and full reemployment. The ongoing, all-out effort at the local, federal, and state levels has demonstrated a strong commitment to preserving the integral role this plant has long played in the community as an employer and a lifeline for so many community institutions. This commitment must continue.”

Assemblyman Phil Palmesano:
Upstate Niagara’s agreement to purchase and continue operating the Kraft plant in Campbell is very good news. It’s an extremely positive result from the commitment of local, state and federal leaders to do everything possible for the future of area workers, families, farmers and so many community institutions. We welcome Upstate Niagara to Steuben County and look forward to working together from here on out to keep rebuilding, growing and expanding their operation.”
