IEC Electronics Corporation has broken ground on a 150,000 sq. ft. manufacturing facility in Newark, Wayne County, near Rochester. The $22 million project designed by Meehan Architecture is expected to be completed by early 2020, Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo said in a statement.
Empire State Development is providing up to $2 million through a Finger Lakes Forward Upstate Revitalization Initiative Grant and up to $3 million through the Excelsior Jobs Program in exchange for IEC’s job creation commitments.
“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,” Cuomo said in a statement. “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.”
