 Industry & Manufacturing
These locally concentrated industry groups have historically proven to fuel one another's growth and success in the Mohawk Valley. Such business networks lead to competitive advantages for existing companies and start-ups alike. EDGE has made a concentrated effort to seek out these clusters and provide an environment to foster their growth.

The Mohawk Valley has current strengths and growth potential in several industrial clusters, particularly:

Aviation - With the legacy of the former Griffiss Air Force Base, and having once served as a regional hub for the former Mohawk, Allegheny, Empire and Piedmont airlines, the Mohawk Valley has deep roots in aviation. Today, Empire Aero Center, a subsidiary of Israel Aerospace Industries, operates a maintenance, repair and overhaul facility in a refurbished former Air Force hangar. In 2006, Mohawk Valley Community College opened an airframe and power plant mechanic training program next door to Empire Aero Center's facility, to train the next generation of aviation personnel. A 2-1/4-mile runway and uncongested airspace make it easy to move aircraft - and the people and products they carry - to and from the Mohawk Valley. Within sight of the Empire Aero Center hangar, manufacturer Goodrich Power Transmission Systems is the world's leading supplier of high technology drive systems for helicopters, fighter/bomber aircraft and tiltrotor aircraft.

Logistics - In 2006 Family Dollar opened the third major retail distribution center in the Mohawk Valley, joining Rite Aid and Wal-Mart as national chains that have realized the logistical value of the Mohawk Valley. Interstate 90 provides east-west travel from Boston to Seattle, and access to all of North America via the Interstate highway system. Many smaller firms such as M&L Trucking have likewise recognized the advantages of locating in the Mohawk Valley, where a network of state highways provides excellent transportation to all parts of New York State and the Northeast. Large development parcels are ready to host your warehousing and distribution operation.

Metals Manufacturing - This cluster has a strong regional history dating to the early 1800s. From the founding of Remington Arms and Revere Copper Products almost two centuries ago to the advanced metallurgy found today at Special Metals Corporation, HMI Metal Powders (a United Technologies Company) and others, the Mohawk Valley has been at the forefront of this industry. International Wire, Owl Wire (owned by the Marmon Group), and TECT all have major manufacturing operations in the Mohawk Valley.

Finance, Insurance, & Real Estate - The Mohawk Valley has become a center of major back office operations including insurance claims, check processing and call centers. Bank of America, The Federal Reserve, Bank of New York, Metropolitan Life, The Hartford, Defense Finance and Accounting Service and ACS all have major centers in the Mohawk Valley, and Utica National Insurance Company's international headquarters are here.

Information Technology & Information Assurance - Led by the Air Force Research Laboratory Information Directorate headquarters, the Mohawk Valley has developed a significant niche in the IT industry over the last half century. Today, international firms such as PAR Technology, BAE Systems, Booz Allen Hamilton, ITT Industries and Northrop Grumman have offices in the region, and homegrown companies such as Dolphin Technology, Black River Systems, Assured Information Security, New York State Technology Enterprise Corporation, Syracuse Research Corporation and Research Associates of Syracuse are becoming forces in the industry.

Nanotechnology - Over the last decade, New York has made a statewide commitment to this industry, investing hundreds of millions of dollars to develop shovel-ready sites and state-of-the-art facilities. Marcy NanoCenter, a 300-acre site on the campus of the State University of New York Institute of Technology, is among those being promoted. Marcy NanoCenter is served by an abundant water supply, dual power sources and easy highway access, is properly zoned, and is virtually shovel ready for new development.
