LeFrois Helps Keep Jobs in Rochester with Paychex Expansion

Calkins Road Business Park

LeFrois Builders and Developers is pleased to announce that Paychex Inc. will be relocating some offices to our Calkins Road Business Park in Henrietta, which is expected to add 625 new jobs to Rochester in our business park.

Governor Andrew Cuomo made the announcement about the 5-year, $58.4 million expansion at his visit to Henrietta this week. During the announcement, Cuomo praised the project as an example of how local companies – that used to leave New York for growth opportunities – are now staying and growing here.

Despite Losses, LeFrois Keeps Big Companies in Rochester

The Paychex expansion is great news for Rochester and LeFrois as it offers a quick response to the loss of large companies from the Henrietta business park, including Verizon, who closed their call center in January, and Unisys, who will end their lease after December.

Paychex will be acquiring 5 buildings within the park and in total will occupy over 350,000 sq ft upon completion of the project.

Over the course of the plan, Paychex is expected to employ a total of more than 5,000 in the Rochester area – adding 125 jobs per year over the next 5 years.
