The expansion project doubles production and warehouse space at the manufacturer’s Rome, NY facility.

Rome, NY, July 12, 2023 – Kris-Tech Wire, a leading manufacturer of U.S.-made industrial wire and cable products, is expanding operations at its Rome, NY headquarters to support more jobs alongside new and expanding product lines. When construction ends in early 2024, the company’s Rome manufacturing facility will have twice the production, warehouse, and office space.

The expansion project is Kris-Tech’s most ambitious since opening its Houston, TX stocking facility in early 2022. It’s also part of a multi-year campaign to expand operations and product lines into emerging markets. 

“We’re excited to continue investing in our people, customers, and community,” Kris-Tech CEO and President Graham Brodock said. “This expansion is a statement of our belief in our business and team, and we look forward to yet another one soon.” 

Once the project is complete, the space will house several added production lines, including Kris-Tech’s recently expanded tray cable division, stocking and storage areas, training rooms, and more. The expansion project will also bring a nearby production facility back to Rome.

This is the fourth project Kris-Tech has embarked on with VIP Structures, a design-build and construction firm based out of Syracuse, NY.  

“It is a tremendous partnership between Kris-Tech and VIP, and to help the Kris-Tech team grow through another facility expansion is so important to us,” Meg Tidd, CEO of VIP Structures, said. “Supporting manufacturing in Central New York is what we do, and working together with a local family company to achieve continued growth here in our community is the best part of what we do.” 

For the city of Rome, Kris-Tech’s longtime commitment and dedication to the city has created a powerful and long-lasting partnership beneficial for both sides extending far beyond the business’ footprint. In recent years, the company has strengthened its local ties by giving back to the community through various charitable donations and events.

“This project represents a significant milestone for Kris-Tech as well as our community and highlights the growth and development we are experiencing,” said Rome Area Chamber of Commerce President and CEO Kristen Skobla. “The expansion of Kris-Tech’s facilities demonstrates their commitment to our region and their confidence in our local economy. It showcases the potential and opportunities available here, both for businesses and the workforce. We will continue working closely with Kris-Tech and other stakeholders to ensure their expansion project is a resounding success.”

In the past year, Kris-Tech has launched several new and expanded product lines, including its tray cable division, electrical utilities hub, and upgraded tracer wire solutions.
