Fulton Companies, a manufacturer of steam, hydronic and thermal fluid heat transfer products, received a Jobs Award in recognition of its investment in the creation and retention of jobs in Central New York. The annual award, presented by Operation Oswego County, brought together more than 140 representatives of regional business, government, education, labor and other various organizations for the announcement.

The award was presented to Pulaski, N.Y.-based company for its contribution to the regional economy by investing in a $13.5 million, 112,000 ft2expansion of its manufacturing and office complex located within the geographic region served by the economic and job development authority. In tandem with the completion of its manufacturing and office facility, Fulton has created more than 50 new manufacturing jobs and continues to grow. Located about 30 miles north of Syracuse, N.Y., Fulton is among the largest employers in a rural county that registers some of New York State’s highest unemployment rates.
