Excerpts from the article follow:

“Crenlo, a major manufacturer in Rochester for 64 years, is looking to grow by capturing a larger piece of the $2 billion computer component enclosure business. . . . Crenlo now employs between 650 to 700 people at its two Rochester facilities. It also has a loyal workforce, with 26 years the average employee tenure.

“Its hourly workforce grew by about 10 percent in 2014 and a similar bump is expected in 2015, according to Crenlo President Dave Kilburn. Crenlo is best known for making industrial and agricultural vehicle cabs for clients like Caterpillar and John Deere, which accounts for about 80 percent of its business.
. . . .

Crenlo added Emcor in 1975 and it now makes thousands of products for the electronics, security, medical device and solar energy industries at its Valley High Drive plant. About 80 to 100 of Crenlo’s approximately 700 employees work for the Emcor business.

Expanding that business with new products and new clients is the goal of Steve Dick, who took over as Emcor’s general manager in mid-2014.

“We have really loyal customers,” he said, while watching workers assemble metal storage racks destined for data centers.”
