The EDC toured the the Marine Depot Maintenance Command at the Marine Corps Logistics Base in Albany for this month's #MadeInAlbany campaign.

Officials said that it has been impressive to learn about what these industries offer.

Other businesses the EDC has toured include Sunyland Farms, Coats and Clark, Mars Chocolate and Pfizer.
