National Pipe and Plastics has withdrawn its request for a payment-in-lieu-of-taxes agreement with the Broome County Industrial Development Agency.

The agency's Patrick Doyle said word of the withdrawal of the PILOT application was received during Friday afternoon's IDA meeting.

National Pipe president David Culbertson was not available for comment on the company's decision not to seek the tax deal.

The company is constructing a 220,000-square-foot facility off Mills Avenue in West Endicott.

Town of Union officials a few months ago gave approval to National Pipe to build the $15 million factory that will produce polyvinyl chloride pipe products.

The company plans to shift production from its current Vestal plant to the West Endicott site.

In addition to its Broome County factory, National Pipe operates a facility in North Carolina.
