Cicero It is hard to believe it has been five years since our country was thrust into a recession. Unemployment is still over 8 percent and consumer confidence is not entirely back to normal, but there are shades of promise that the economy is rebounding. The best indicator is when companies choose to expand their businesses, especially if that expansion takes place in Central New York.
Jadak Technologies, a data collection technology, manufactures barcode scanners, machine vision systems, and RFID engines. They have been located in Central New York for more than 15 years. They recently announced that they have outgrown the 15,000-square-foot facility in North Syracuse where they have resided for the past six years. Jadak Technologies plans to begin construction in May of this year on a 40,000 square-foot expansion at their existing location. Currently, Jadak employs 115 people, 100 of whom work at the Cicero facility. With the approval of the expansion, Jadak plans to add a total of 60 new jobs over the next five years.
