National Pipe and Plastic Starts its Move to West Endicott

A Vestal company has started to move its manufacturing operations to West Endicott.

National Pipe and Plastic, which makes PVC pipe, anticipates beginning production at the new facility in March with all production taking place there by May or June.

The head of the company says an increase in work has caused National Pipe and Plastic to move to the new facility on Mills Ave, which at about a quarter of a million square feet is three times the size of its Vestal location.

Some neighbors of the new site in Endicott have opposed the move. They worry about the traffic, lights, and noise that come with an around-the-clock operation.

The head of the company says it built a road that trucks will use to go directly from Route 17C to the new facility without going through the neighborhood.

He says an increase in production could mean an increase in jobs.

"We'll probably have more production than we thought and more sales and shipments than we thought. So we may end up keeping more than 175 people in the end. We originally anticipated around 150," said David Culbertson, President of National Pipe and Plastic.

"Yeah, something had to go there. A 24/7 operation should have been one of the things that said, 'not in a residential community. We'll find a business that won't be that disruptive,'" said West Endicott resident Gary King.

King says the town has been unresponsive to neighbors' concerns and worries they won't be heard if issues pop up in the future. Culbertson says part of his plan is to buy the neighboring, abandoned EJ Factory so it can be demolished and replaced with an office building and park.
