Feldmeier Equipment, Inc. proudly announces their expansion to a new location in Syracuse, NY. The company has officially broken ground on a new 128,000 square foot manufacturing building, with an additional 28,000 square feet of office space. The new location is in close proximity to the existing headquarters, which Feldmeier acquired in 1990. Determined to expand production and increase floor space, this new facility will allow for a 30% increase in capacity. Feldmeier Equipment projects the new facility to be fully operational by their annual Feldmeier Day, June 17th, 2018.
The Feldmeier family is committed to investing in new and improved equipment company wide. Currently, we’ve made many significant investments within our New York locations. The installation of our new Boldrini Head Press in our Little Falls Facility will allow us to improve production and increase volume throughout all our locations.

By Stephanie Sorrell-Whitestephanie@timestelegram.com LITTLE FALLS — Feldmeier Equipment made a delivery Tuesday that a company representative said is part of a first wave of deliveries to the Kraft Heinz Company plant in Lowville. “It’s the first of two 70,000-gallon milk silos that left today,” said Bruce Dye, Feldmeier product sales manager, during a telephone interview Tuesday. Dye said this first wave of production for Kraft Heinz includes four more 70,000-gallon tanks, along with 60,000-gallon, 40,000-gallon and 20,000-gallon tanks. He said the rest will likely be delivered in mid-November. “The second wave we’re building for Kraft Heinz includes six 40,000-gallon and two 20,000-gallon,” he said. This is expected to take place in late February or early March. Dye said the tanks are 12.5-feet in diameter and are 90-feet long and each tank has three vehicle escorts with yellow hazard lights and “oversize load” signs. The convoy took state Route 5 west, through Utica, into Rome, onto state Route 26 north into Lyon Falls and then onto state Route 12 into Lowville. “It will take them most the day to get there,” he said. Dye said a route survey was done ahead of time to plot out possible issues, such as construction. He said some construction was noted on Route 12, outside of Utica, which meant they had to find another way to go. Feldmeier’s manufacturing facility, located in the industrial park in Little Falls, specializes in building stainless steel tanks. Dye said the new tanks are part of an expansion project at Kraft Heinz, specifically for Philadelphia Cream Cheese products. He said the company only makes the cream cheese brand in Beaver Dam, Wisconsin, and in Lowville. “Everyone thinks it’s made in Philadelphia,” he said. Dye thanked the Little Falls Police Department for its cooperation to block off traffic while Feldmeier maneuvered the tanks throughout the city onto Route 5 from the facility where it’s assembled. He noted this included blocking off the one-way street next to McDonald’s Restaurant. “It’s a big job. It’s good for Feldmeier. It’s good for everybody,” he said.
Carbon vs. Stainless Steel – While carbon steel initially tends to be cheaper than stainless steel, the maintenance of carbon steel is very costly. Sure, stainless steels cost impact is greater in the beginning but the integrity of stainless steel far exceeds carbon. Every few years, carbon steel has to be updated and repainted due to outdoor elements, corrosion and rust. However, stainless steels chromium oxide layer is very long lasting and withstands against rust, weather and corrosion. Essentially, stainless steels versatility, longevity and durability makes for a strong, cleaner more sophisticated look.
