Insurance company Haylor, Freyer & Coon announced Friday it is moving its headquarters to One Park Place in downtown Syracuse.

All 130 local employees are expected to move from Salina Meadows Office Park off Buckley Road to One Park Place in late spring or early summer 2019. It's the largest corporate move into downtown Syracuse since 2016, according to the City of Syracuse.

“When looking at our options, the most important thing to our company was staying in Syracuse,” said Jim Freyer, CEO. “One Park Place and the surrounding area have seen tremendous investment and revitalization in recent years. We are excited to move to an area that will allow us to build upon our company culture and help us recruit and retain top talent as we continue our independent, employee-owned history.”

The company decided to move downtown for additional space, increased visibility in the market and what they call a more centralized, vibrant location. According to Freyer, it also brings the agency closer to other professional service organizations and many local nonprofit organizations that the company supports through days of service and other charitable activities.

“As we celebrate our 90th anniversary this year, we are looking forward to the next 90 years with our talented workforce of today and tomorrow, and with a headquarters that can position us for a strong future,” said Freyer.

Haylor, Freyer & Coon will occupy nearly 40,000 square feet on the top two floors of the building.

The company has been located on Salina Meadows Parkway since 1989 and was previously at 750 James St. in Syracuse beginning in 1979. It was in the the University Building at 120 E. Washington St. in downtown Syracuse beginning in 1947 and 429 James St. in the mid-1950s.

Additional offices are located in Johnson City, Ithaca, Watertown, Rochester and Schenectady.
