Delastek expands to TDC’s Air Industrial Park

The Development Corporation (TDC) is pleased to announce the expansion of Québec-based Delastek into TDC’s Air Industrial Park, located in Plattsburgh, NY.

Delastek has signed a three (3) year lease with The Development Corporation for 625 Route 3, Suite 200 in Plattsburgh, NY and will occupy 10,000 s.f. 

Headquartered in the Shawinigan Industrial Park in Grand-Mère, Canada, Delastek is a specialist in the manufacturing of composite parts as well as in the integration of circuit breaker panels, electronic casings, wiring, air ducts, finishing panels and other accessories for the transportation and aerospace industries. Delastek offers integrated and customized solutions for some of most prestigious names in both industries including Bombardier, Bell Helicopter, Viking, CAE, Nova Bus and Prevost. Founded in 1984, Delastek has grown from a small group of six employees to an impressive team of over 100.

At the Plattsburgh facility Delastek will be working with Nova Bus and Prevost in TDC’s Banker Road Industrial Park, providing both companies with customized bumpers that are fabricated by polyurethane injection for a high-quality finish, increased durability, and excellent impact absorption at a wide range of temperatures.

According to Carol Raiche, Marketing Director at Delastek, the company is currently looking to hire three new employees who will be cross-trained to work in the various stages of production including mold injection, sanding, and painting. Delastek will be providing onsite training for the new employees and the company expects to be fully-operational by mid-March of this year. Mr. Raiche indicated that more information on the company could be found on their website www.delastek.com and individuals interested in employment opportunities should contact Tommy Trudel, Human Resources Coordinator at Delastek, via email at rh@delastek.com

“The Chamber was delighted to conduct one of our Red Carpet days for Delastek late last year and to show them the benefits of our full service team including our TDC partners, after meeting with company representatives previously at the Farnborough Air Show,” states Garry Douglas, President of the North Country Chamber of Commerce. “We are delighted to welcome them as the newest member of our growing cluster of Quebec based transportation equipment companies, pursuing growth in the U.S. market through our unique area. Delastek will further enhance our attractiveness as an international center for transportation equipment production, and we look forward to working with them in the years ahead to help them succeed and grow in the North Country!”

“TDC was pleased to be able to accommodate Delastek’s facility requirements in Greater Plattsburgh,” said Paul A. Grasso, Jr., President and CEO of The Development Corporation. “Delastek’s expertise in providing innovative solutions to servicing both the transportation and aerospace industries are welcome additions to our burgeoning transportation equipment cluster. We look forward to working with other companies that are interested in capitalizing on the benefits of our region’s North American Center of Excellence for Transportation Equipment that was formally launched in June of last year.”
