  • testimonial

    Kathy Wade, Vice President - "The Hudson Valley is the apple belt of NYS and in Orange County we found a one hundred year old, 60 acre orchard where we built our cider house to constantly experiment with new processes and techniques. We are pleased to be part of Orange County’s ever-strengthening local food and beverage industry."

  • testimonial

    Scott Batulis, President and CEO - "With support from the community, local elected officials and government agencies, Orange Regional Medical Center made history in 2011 when we became the first new hospital in NYS in more than 20 years. Opening our doors in Orange County, and most recently expanding our campus, has attracted many more medical related services to the area."

    Bill Bushman, Vice President of Operations - "We at Takasago are a global organization that maintains offices, production sites and R & D centers in 28 countries. In 2011 we faced a critical juncture where we had to either expand our current facility in the state of NJ to accommodate our growth or purchase and upfit a new facility in a new location. In the end, it made more sense to move our manufacturing and warehousing operation into a 130,000 square-foot building in Orange County, NY. The county’s incredible infrastructure and business friendly environment, swayed our decision."

    Teddy Scott, Chief Executive Officer - "During the highly competitive application process to select New York's five licensed medical cannabis registered organizations, PharmaCann was proud to learn that we were the state’s top-scoring application and, as a result, we were awarded New York’s very first medical cannabis license.  We provide a safe and effective medical cannabis program for certified patients diagnosed with serious medical conditions.  We chose the site in Orange County because of its strategic location within New York State, the fact that the site was shovel-ready with a streamlined permitting process, and the support of the Orange County community. We received an entire network of support from the Orange County Partnership and all of the private and public leaders throughout the planning, permitting and approval process. We couldn’t be more delighted to make Orange County, NY our home."

This facility is a center of excellence for the coating of jet engine parts, a proprietary high-tech process of critical importance to Pratt & Whitney. Joining Orange County’s high-tech manufacturing cluster gives us local connections to a highly technically skilled workforce, and the incentives package we received allowed us to further invest $140 million in the area by expanding our facility.
