OSWEGO – Mayor Billy Barlow and owner Terry LeRoy announced during a ribbon cutting ceremony on June 18 that LeRoi, Inc., has officially opened for business.
The jewelry manufacturing company recently re-located into the city of Oswego from Fulton.
LeRoi brought 40 existing jobs to Oswego by moving into an existing building at 212 W. Second St.
The re-location was incentivized by the city of Oswego offering a $130,000 grant from program income through the NYS Community Development Block Grant program administered and managed by the city’s Office of Economic Development.
“I am very excited to welcome LeRoi, Inc., to the Oswego community as they move their operations and existing personnel into the city of Oswego. Bringing more jobs to the city of Oswego is very important to stimulating the local economy and providing employment opportunities to City residents,” Mayor Barlow said. “The $130,000 to incentivize LeRoi, Inc., will certainly give a boost to our community as we move jobs into the city of Oswego and welcome a great, reputable business into our downtown. I am thrilled to partner with Terry LeRoi and his team at LeRoi, Inc., to make this project happen and look forward to seeing the positive outcomes from the move and wish them the best of luck moving forward.”
“We are so proud to be operating in our new location in Oswego. Our new 11,000-square-foot facility will help us to efficiently expand and streamline our business. We’re looking forward to adding new jobs and contributing to the community. I’d like to thank to Mayor Barlow, Tom Schneider and Pathfinder Bank, Justin Rudgick and The city of Oswego Economic Development Office, Bill Galloway of Century 21 Galloway Realty and Mike Treadwell of Operation Oswego County,” Terry LeRoy said.
LeRoi, Inc., has been in business for more than 24 years.
The re-location to Oswego is part of an expansion project requiring LeRoi, Inc., to hire more people and move into a larger facility.
