Garlock, an EnPro Industries Inc. family of companies, recently marked its 125th anniversary with visits from state Sen. Michael F. Nozzolio, R-Fayette, and Assembly Robert C. Oakes, R-Macedon.

Nozzolio, who encouraged the company to continue to grow, presented Garlock with a resolution commemorating its milestone anniversary. He and Assemblyman Oakes also congratulated Garlock on the completion of the Brownfield cleanup program at its Palmyra facility.

The Garlock family supplies the world’s processing industries with components for industrial piping systems in various industries worldwide.

Earlier this year, Garlock completed the third and final phase of the Palmyra Brownfield cleanup program, which received a certification from the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation.

The third phase involved remediation of hazardous solvents at a decommissioned tank farm, removal of toxic sediments from nearby Red Creek and expanding the boundaries of its onsite landfill area. Garlock voluntarily embarked upon the program in 2005, initially remediating the 100-year-old site where it had been producing its Klozure high-performance dynamic seals.
