CAR Engineering and Manufacturing

Project Title:  CAR Engineering and Manufacturing Retention Case

Location:  Victor, Ontario County

Competitive Location:  Monroe County.

Jobs:  CAR Engineering and Manufacturing will retain 48 jobs and create two jobs at its Victor location.

Project Description:  In 1992 CAR Engineering and Manufacturing located its business in space leased in Victor.  CAR’s lease expires in Dec. 2012, and evaluated its options.  CAR was tempted by much lower per square foot lease rates in Monroe County. 

CAR, a family-owned business, specializes in production metal stamping, CNC machining, and tool making.  To help retain CAR in Ontario County, the Ontario County Economic Development Corp. offered them a matching grant to institute lean manufacturing principles and make leasehold improvements. 

Ontario County Workforce Development also worked with CAR to provide training funds for incumbent workers.  CAR’s landlord negotiated lease terms, too, making this retention case a true team effort.
