LOCKPORT – The Town of Lockport Planning Board granted site plan approval Tuesday for a 14,000-square-foot expansion of Gooding Co., a printing plant in Ulrich Business Park off the south end of Davison Road.

Gooding, which at 137 years old is the oldest industry in Lockport, moved from the City of Lockport into the town in 1999. Earlier this year, the town Industrial Development Agency approved a 15-year payment-in-lieu-of-taxes, or PILOT, deal on the $900,000 expansion, adding as many as 10 jobs to a 35-person workforce.

The company, which specializes in printing inserts for prescription drug packages, nearly doubles the size of the current building with the addition. Actual production floor area will more than double.
