Auburn Armature closes two branches, plans ‘re-opening’ events at four locations

A longtime Auburn company that’s under new ownership has made more cuts after eliminating staff in July.

Auburn Armature, an electrical equipment distributor which is now operated by New Hyde Park-based Power Flo Technologies, closed its Albany and Vestal branches in August, the company confirmed Monday.

The closures were attributed to a “significant and voluntary loss of staff” that hurt sales at the branches. A former employee at the Vestal branch who requested anonymity said a few colleagues resigned because they were disappointed with the company’s direction.
