West Endicott PVC Factory Nearing Completion

Work is continuing on the new manufacturing facility for National Pipe and Plastics in the town of Union.

The company – which makes polyvinyl chloride pipe – is planning to move from its existing factory in Vestal.

In recent weeks, several large silos have been put into place at the West Endicott site, which is south of Maple Street and west of Mills Avenue. Workers were seen this week on top of one of the tall silos.

The company has said the new plant will enable it to produce bigger PVC pipes than it can manufacture at its Vestal facility.

National Pipe president David Culbertson did not return phone calls seeking information on when the facility is expected to start production.

The $15 million 220-thousand-square-foot factory was approved by the town of Union last year, despite opposition by some people who live near the property.

A few homes on nearby streets still have signs protesting the National Pipe and Plastics plant.

One woman who was an outspoken opponent of the factory expressed resignation that the project could not be stopped. She said she and some of her neighbors are “not pleased.” But she acknowledged “there’s nothing we can do.” She said those who were against the plant did as much as they “could afford to do.”
