MEDINA – Snappy, a manufacturing company in Medina, will move to the former Bernzomatic, which has plenty of room to allow Snappy to expand.

Snappy currently manufactures galvanized pipe and fittings for the residential HVAC industry out of 214 Commercial St., near the lift bridge by the Erie Canal.

The former Bernzomatic site was bought last year by Kyle Brent through his B360 Holdings LLC. Brent announced plans to upgrade and rehab the former manufacturing site.

Neither Brent nor Snappy is seeking tax incentives as part of the relocation, Orleans Economic Development Agency officials said today.

The former Bernzomatic plant was closed by its last tenant, Worthington Cylinders. The manufacturing plant has 160,000 square feet and has been vacant since 2014. Worthington closed the Medina plant in mid-2014 and shifted those operations to a Worthington site in Wisconsin, ending 174 jobs in Medina.

Worthington bought Bernzomatic in 2011. Bernzomatic had operated in Medina since 1969, making torches.
