LIF Industries expands capacity, will create, retain jobs in Port Washington
PORT WASHINGTON, N.Y. — Long Island hollow metal door manufacturer LIF Industries will create 21 new jobs and retain 110 jobs as it expands production capacity and nearly doubles the footprint of its Port Washington factory.
The company will purchase a building across the street from its current Nassau County location, to increase manufacturing.
“Under Governor (Andrew) Cuomo’s leadership, manufacturing continues to grow in New York, creating jobs and providing the backbone of regional economies,” said Howard Zemsky, president, CEO & commissioner of ESD. “LIF Industries is part of a company that has been producing goods on Long Island for the past 80 years, and we are pleased to see them remain and expand here.”
With the expansion, LIF Industries will purchase a 40,000-square-foot building across the street from its current 163,000-square-foot factory, increasing its size by 25%. The new facility will help LIF expand its manufacturing capabilities, as it taps into new markets throughout the United States.
