Pre-Tech prides itself on being a local company, Kahler said. He pointed out 19 of the 22 employees at the Mineville plant live in the town of Moriah. The others live in Elizabethtown, Wadhams and Ticonderoga.
“I think Pre-Tech has been good for the community,” he said. “The plant is safe and clean. It provides good-paying jobs.”
The Mineville plant operates two shifts, day and night, five days a week.
