Schumer urges Retrotech to keep Rochester jobs

U.S. Sen. Charles E. Schumer is urging Savoye Inc. President Jack LeVan to keep all existing employees at Retrotech in Rochester.

Savoye Inc., a French company, recently purchased Retrotech, a Rochester Top 100 employer. In a letter to LeVan, Schumer urged him to work for a smooth transition with Retrotech President Pete Hartman, while maintaining all 85 existing jobs at the Rochester company.

Retrotech designs systems that run the machinery used in warehouse automated storage and retrieval systems, and employs a team of mechanical, electrical and software engineers along with project management professionals.

Savoye Inc. is a Chicago-based subsidiary of Savoy, which is based in Dijon, France.
