A Message from the Southern Tier Regional Director
to the Southern Tier Region of New York State, a unique
region with a diverse economic base that offers a superb
business climate to new and expanding business.
Major businesses are choosing New York State to locate and expand their operations. To remain competitive, New York State has implemented progressive economic development strategies and aggressive financial and tax incentives to stimulate growth and job creation. Additionally, there is particular focus on building industry clusters that will significantly contribute to growing New York’s New Economy.
The Southern Tier’s open spaces, strategic location and advanced highway infrastructure make it attractive to a wide range of businesses and industries. The region contains two metropolitan areas—Binghamton and Elmira, a number of small cities and extensive rural areas that border Pennsylvania. In addition to that diversity, the region has an educated workforce and one of the lowest costs of living in the nation!
The region’s industry clusters include manufacturing, flight simulation, defense, distribution and insurance. We are particularly proud to be home to and support so many outstanding and internationally known employers such as Corning, Impress USA, DeMets Candy Company, Schweizer Aircraft, Raymond Corporation, BAE Systems, Frito-Lay and Dresser-Rand.
The staff of the Southern Tier Regional Office of Empire State Development will work closely with you to identify and help meet your business needs and goals for the future. Economic development programs are available to assist in building a new facility, relocating a business, expanding operations and workforce and entering new markets or international arenas. Again, welcome to the Southern Tier, we look forward to working with you!
