Plumbers and Steamfitters Local 773 First Tenant at Tech Meadows Industrial Park in West Glens Falls, NY
In West Glens Falls, near Northway Exit 18, the first tenant is moving into the new Tech Meadows industrial park. Plumbers and Steamfitters Local 773 is building a center to train people to work at places like GlobalFoundries in Malta.
The 20,000-square-foot facility will have a clean room, training center and administrative building. It will offer apprenticeships and journeyman programs, brown field training and development of green jobs, as well as safety and health training.
GBP’s Take: The Plumbers and Steamfitters Local 773 first agreed to purchase a 5-acre parcel in July 2011 so they put up the facility quite quickly. For further info Click Here.
