Manufacturing Comes Back to the Erie Canal

SCOUT Economics client, DUTCHLAND PLASTICS, opened its new plant on a legacy manufacturing site along the Erie Canal in Canastota New York this past October. Dutchland is the premier rotational molded plastics manufacturer in the U.S. today. Rotomolding, using state-of-the-art equipment, allows Dutchland to manufacture in comparable quantities to "blow molding" with fewer design constraints, ensuring products meet the highest quality standards. The Company will be staffing the new facility with 68 employees over the next several years, as it outfits the new building with molding and ancillary equipment valued at more than $4 million. SCOUT Economics assisted with site selection and incentives advice. We are proud to have had a hand in the process of bringing this vital and growing new industrial business to the Village of Canastota, with its long history as a vibrant manufacturing hub.
