The PorT of oswego ConTinues growTh As MAriTiMe CoMMerCe LeAder

A nyone who lives in Oswego saw the increased economic activity at the Port of Oswego during the last couple years. In fact, during the heart of the shipping season, from March through November, there were often one or two different vessels docked to unload or take on cargo nearly every week.

A record Year

“The good news is the Port of Oswego is back strong with increases in business and investments that are designed to help the Port be more competitive in the new Great Lakes marketplace,” said William Scriber, executive director and CEO, Port of Oswego Authority. In July alone, our tonnage increased by 95% over 2021 tons delivered between January and July. That’s 187,210 tons, and we continued to grow from there. Our increased intake tonnage in wind turbine components and aluminum have been nothing short of astounding. As of October that number has almost doubled to over 348,979 tons. That’s more than a 300 percent increase over last year. From January to September 30, the Port yielded more than $ 2 million in local payroll and benefits.”

Our $15 million grain export center has been a magnet for both local growers and new business. Our contracts for international grain exports have kept more than 100 local farmers bringing their grain to Oswego, while these shipments ease the strain on the global supply chain, Scriber said. These growers no longer have to bear the added expense of trucking their grain to Baltimore of Cincinnati. We save them money and bring their business here to Oswego. In fact, the port shipped the first grain ship out of the Seaway in March at the being of the season.

new in 2023

In addition to record shipping activity, the Port also signed a historic, $600,000 contract with the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers to deepen the Oswego harbor, which will transform the Port’s capabilities and ignite new growth. Once completed, the Port will be able to accommodate Seawaymax Class freighters— the largest able to travel the Great Lakes.

On top of that, the Port awarded a $2.1 million contract to build a new deep-water marina slated to be complete by late spring 2023. The 24-slip marina will have modern docks with both power and water available. It will also have a pavilion and new bathroom facilities—all within walking distance to downtown Oswego—and will focus on the boating community and allow direct access to the many local businesses downtown. Included in the new marina will be a docking area for the H. Lee White Museum’s boat for

lighthouse tours. In October the port was awarded $754,000 for the purchase a modern reach shipping container stacker for the port. This critical piece of equipment will further place the port in a position to expand new business opportunities.

Scriber is optimistic about growth at the Port during the 2023 shipping season. “We are in the progress of reaching out to a number of companies for the 2023 shipping season. We believe the grain market will be a growth area for us along with the green energy market. Also, with the Micron construction, the ship and rail access offered by the port will be very important in support of equipment needs for the facility. Oswego and Central New York will reap the economic benefits from job creation and local economic investment.”

President and chief executive officer

Address: 214 W First St Oswego, NY 13126 Phone: 315-343-0057 Email: contactus@pathfinderbank .com Website: www pathfinderbank com

In Oswego County since: 1859

Total employment: 169

Full-time: 155 Part-time: 9 Interns/temps: 5

n What’s new: James A Dowd, a longtime bank employee who served as chief financial officer and chief operating officer, became the bank’s new president and chief executive officer in 2022, following the resignation of Thomas W Schneider . At the end of 2022, Pathfinder expected to open a new branch in the southwest corridor of the city of Syracuse, which will allow the bank to serve its growing customer base and provide a range of community banking services to the city’s underserved neighborhoods Overall, the bank’s strong financial performance, dedicated and highly capable team and healthy capital position leaves it well-positioned for 2023 and beyond

n Operations: Our focus throughout 2021 on enhancing our operating leverage proved to be successful, as double-digit revenue growth outpaced noninterest expense growth by a significant margin 2021 total revenue was up 16 .8%, while we limited expense growth to less than 10%, even compared to the lower-than-typical expenses we recorded in 2020 amid the pandemic-induced operating environment, a spokesman said Looking ahead, the bank remains focused on balancing effective expense management with appropriate investments to support the future growth of the company, namely attracting and retaining exceptional talent To that end, they do expect increased salary and benefits costs in 2022 and beyond as we respond to inflationary and wage pressures within our markets .

Pathfinder’s balance sheet continued to grow, with an improved funding mix and healthy loan portfolio Period-end deposits grew by more than $59 million over 2020 and included approximately $30 million of noninterest bearing deposits . The bank continued to reduce its reliance on time deposits, with both average balance and rate paid on time deposits decreasing significantly compared to the prior year . This supported continued improve-

ment in its funding costs, with the average cost of total interest-bearing liabilities down 40 basis points to 0 79% for year-over-year

While its local economies have improved significantly from the height of the pandemic and its pipelines remain solid, Pathfinder continues to maintain a conservative approach to managing asset quality and modest loan growth expectations given fiscal policy changes and the evolving impacts of the COVID-19 variant That said, they are optimistic about the opportunities in the vibrant Central New York markets and continue to take strategic steps to maximize them
