Governor Andrew M. Cuomo today announced the groundbreaking of IEC Electronics Corporation's new, state-of-the-art facility in Newark, Wayne County. The electronic manufacturing solutions provider plans to create up to 362 new jobs and retain 463 positions at the new 150,000-square-foot facility located at the Silver Hill Technology Park. IEC has already added 175 jobs at its current facility in Newark over the last 18 months. The company had considered moving out of New York State, but chose to remain in the region with support from the Governor and Empire State Development. IEC plans to move to and begin operations at the new facility in early 2020.

"New York is committed to working with established and innovative businesses as they expand and grow to ensure secure, good-paying jobs remain in our Upstate communities," Governor Cuomo said. "By investing in IEC Electronics, we are helping this long-standing, successful community business evolve, resulting in the creation of hundreds of top-quality jobs that will continue to move the Finger Lakes region forward."

"This new manufacturing facility advances the growth of the tech industry in the Finger Lakes," said Lieutenant Governor Kathy Hochul. "IEC Electronics' facility will create and retain hundreds of good jobs in Wayne County and expand the company's footprint providing electronic manufacturing solutions. We are committed to continuing to invest in successful companies like IEC to create more opportunities and strengthen the economy of the region."
