Governor Andrew M. Cuomo today announced that Nanotronics will open a high-tech manufacturing center at the Brooklyn Navy Yard, creating 190 new jobs and investing $11 million. The new flagship manufacturing center will be located in the Brooklyn Navy Yard's historic Building 20, a 150-year-old former shipbuilding factory. The project, which brings manufacturing and research and development together in one location, delivers the blueprint for how to reinvigorate New York's manufacturing sector while furthering Governor Cuomo's efforts to grow the state's technology ecosystem. Additionally, Nanotronics has partnered with the City University of New York's Medgar Evers College to join the START-UP NY program, collaborating to develop the next generation of leaders in the expanding technology and manufacturing epicenter of New York.

"New York offers 21st century tech firms the talent pipelines they need to succeed, and we are proud to support innovative companies that invest in the Empire State," Governor Cuomo said. "This project melds the Brooklyn waterfront's industrial heritage with its tech-based future and creates a state-of-the-art manufacturing center that will generate jobs, spur investment and build a stronger economy."

"New York City is rapidly becoming the international hub for innovation and technology, and it's not just happening in Manhattan," said Lieutenant Governor Kathy Hochul. "With New York State's support and record private investment, Brooklyn Navy Yard capitalized on its rich industrial history and has emerged as a national model for revitalizing manufacturing and green technology in the 21st century. The expansion of Nanotronics will create 190 new jobs, and most importantly, it includes a training pipeline in partnership with CUNY so that New Yorkers can actually obtain and retain those positions. We look forward to welcoming the next generation of innovators and leaders."
