THE WOODLANDS, TEXAS – SI Group, a leading global performance additives company, opened its new regional office in Schenectady, N.Y. The new office is on the first floor of Building Six at Mohawk Harbor. SI Group signed a multi-year lease with The Galesi Group, furthering its presence in Schenectady.
SI Group’s new office features state-of-the-art technology and has been designed to promote a collaborative and innovative work environment, offering 19,000 square feet of space for employees to connect in person and virtually. Mohawk Harbor provides SI Group’s employees and visitors with a spacious outdoor patio overlooking the river and nearby walking trails, along with neighboring amenities including local restaurants, retail, and other services. “The Galesi Group is proud that SI Group chose Mohawk Harbor as the home of its new regional office,” said David Buicko, CEO of The Galesi Group. “When we envisioned Mohawk Harbor, it was with the goal of developing a first-class complex on the riverfront where people can live, work, stay, and play. We appreciate SI Group for investing in our community and commend its vision to create a lifestyle work environment for its employees.”
Since SI Group’s inception in 1906, the company has had a prominent presence in Schenectady. Following the sale of its former headquarters building in Niskayuna in 2022, SI Group has retained many corporate employees in the Capital Region in addition to its manufacturing site in Rotterdam Junction. “Keeping our regional office in Schenectady was important to us. SI Group continues to be committed to the Capital Region and Mohawk Harbor for many reasons, including having the freedom to create the workplace—both indoors and out—that propels our employee-driven culture,” said Brooke Manrique, Sr. Vice President of Human Resources and Communications at SI Group.
Schenectady’s Metroplex Development Authority supported SI Group with the move to Mohawk Harbor. “We thank SI Group for their strong commitment to Schenectady County with this new waterfront regional office at Mohawk Harbor and major manufacturing facility in Rotterdam Junction,” said Ray Gillen, Chair, Schenectady County Metroplex Development Authority.
