Fulton County is at the heart of it
Natural beauty and resources, with easy access to the big cities
Fulton County, at the foothills of the spectacular Adirondack Mountains, offers the beauty of small town life with easy access to the major cities of the Northeast and Canada. Located within eastern New York’s Tech Valley, Fulton County is less than 40 miles west of its crown jewel – the GlobalFoundries Fab 8 semiconductor chip fabrication facility. A short drive to New York City, Boston and Montreal, Fulton County maintains a total population of 55,531, according to the 2010 census.
The 550-square-mile county has almost one billion gallons of available water in storage, and a NYS Certified Bacteriological Environmental Laboratory. The area has not experienced a water shortage or restriction in decades.
Fulton County is also fortunate to have a state-of-the-art wastewater treatment plant. The Gloversville-Johnstown Joint Wastewater Treatment Facility is designed to treat domestic sanitary sewage from the cities of Gloversville and Johnstown, as well as industrial wastewater. Peak treatment capacity is 30 mgd. A recent $11 million facility upgrade results in additional treatment capacity and the ability for the facility to generate nearly all electricity needed for efficient operation.
Prepared and Eager Workforce
Fulton County has a hard-working, skilled workforce. The county’s many educational institutions ensure an abundance of skilled and motivated workers. The Fulton County Center for Regional Growth (FCCRG) coordinates employee identification and readiness programs throughout the county, geared to making sure the right kind of training is available.
