Herkimer Industries Lights Up NYC

Category: General — Tags: , , , , , — NYSID @ 4:45 pm

Herkimer ARC/Herkimer Industries recently created two 14′ x 33′ LED American flags for the Army Corps of Engineers in support of the Armed Forces Recruiting Station in Times Square, NYC. This project has been a tremendous collaboration with Fiberdyne, Herkimer’s private sector partner and an LED manufacturer located in Herkimer County. At the Herkimer production center, New Yorkers with disabilities measured and cut all the wiring harnesses for the flags and veterans worked on site at Fiberdyne; they will also be involved with the removal and installation of the new flags in Times Square.

The flags will be officially dedicated into service on December 14th at the Armed Forces Recruiting Station, with Herkimer Industries employees and NYSID representatives on hand.

Pictured here is the Herkimer Industries flag which appeared at the Macy’s Thanksgiving parade on November 24th.

Great job by everyone involved!
