Ilion, 10/07/10 — Fermer Precision has partnered with a downstate company for a new product line.

Mark Cushman, vice president of operations at Fermer Precision, said its workers will make power transmission components that will be assembled by Rockland Standard Gear, located in Sloatsburg in Rockland County.

“It’s a real exciting day for two great New York state companies,” he said.

State Senator James Seward, R,C,I - Milford, took a tour of the facility before the start of the conference.

“This is the type of company that is very important to the economic base in the area and is a real key to our economic future,” said Seward as he congratulated the partnership that was formed between the two companies and for keeping jobs in New York.

“This partnership provides additional markets for Fermer Precision and means only good things for this area,” he later said to workers.
