More on Crenlo/ Emcor's $200,000 fed contract
I chatted with Greg Wetzel, the general manager of Crenlo's Emcor division, about this Monday.
Sounds like interesting things are in the works for Emcor. I think this a Rochester company worth keeping an eye on.
Here's my write-up about Crenlo/Emcor's latest federal contract. I mentioned this contract in an earlier posting on local contracts:
A new $200,852 contract with the U.S. Department of Defenseis giving a Rochester manufacturer a little economic boost.
Crenlo Inc., which primarily makes cabs for construction and agriculture equipment, recently locked down the deal to sell more than 100 pilot consoles to the U.S. Air Education and Training Command at the Keesler Air Force Base Biloxi, Miss.
Emcor Enclosures, a division of Crenlo, makes the consoles.
While such a project is not unusual, Crenlo says this contract is larger — both in terms of dollar amount and number of units sold — than what the Defense Department typically awards for this type of project.
Emcor is not a major part of the Crenlo operation now. However, the company says it is moving ahead with "a strategic plan and vision to grow the Emcor business aggressively … "
Crenlo employs more than 600 people at its two Rochester facilities
