Governor Andrew M. Cuomo today announced IEC Electronics Corporation will invest more than $20 million to relocate and construct a 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. 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 mid-2019.

"New York will continue to work with businesses as they expand and grow to ensure good-paying jobs remain in our communities," Governor Cuomo said. "By investing in IEC Electronics' expansion in the Wayne County, New York has retained a long-standing community business, while supporting the creation of hundreds of new jobs that will help the region continue to move forward."
