Communications equipment manufacturer Dynalec Corp. plans to expand its operations in Wayne County, creating eight new jobs.

The company will add to 12,000 square-feet to its existing facility in the Village of Sodus, a move that will allow Dynalec to substantially increase production in an effort to better meet the worldwide demand for its products. The more than $1 million project is underway and is expected to be completed by mid-March 2019.  Dynalec is slated to receive $250,000 in tax credits from the state.

Founded in 1960, Dynalec manufactures shipboard systems for communication, navigation and switching. It builds high-quality, standard and custom products for military and commercial use, including sound powered telephones. Its customers include Department of Defense agencies, military and commercial shipyards, international navies, mining/oil rigging manufacturers and telecommunication companies.

“Dynalec Corporation is excited about its expansion in Wayne County and more specifically, in the Village of Sodus,” said James Ryan, attorney at Dynalec.  The surrounding community has supported Dynalec for over 40 years and we are proud to call the Village of Sodus our home. Construction of our new facility will allow us to meet the growing worldwide demand for our products, while expanding our highly technical workforce to remain a leader in onboard ship communication.”
