Danaren Dental Laboratory of Seneca Falls is exploring three options to expand its manufacturing space and remain competitive in the marketplace.
The options are to expand its current operations in Seneca Falls by building a 7,500-square-foot addition to its existing facilities at the north end of the BonaDent facility, the former Wal-Mart building on Routes 5&20.
Another option is to relocate Danaren to one of BonaDent’s other manufacturing locations in Florida or South Carolina, which are offering incentives to move there.
Or they could outsource production to China or India, as other American dental labs do.
Danaren officials have applied to the Seneca County Industrial Development Agency (IDA) for financial assistance to help them make the decision to stay in Seneca Falls, retaining 29 current employees and adding up to 30 new employees over the next five years.
