Score one for job creation in NYS

One major New York State employer is reporting good news in the state's ongoing competition with other states and countries for jobs.

In a March 31 news release, Oneida Ltd. announced that a program begun in January to increase productivity had exceeded expectations.

"We now have the flexibility to close our higher-cost manufacturing facility in Canada and reallocate that production to more efficient, lower-cost sites in New York and Mexico," Peter J. Kallet, president/CEO of Oneida, said in a press release.
