SUNY computer chip facility will create 1,000 jobs in Mohawk Valley
UPSTATE NEW YORK — SUNY Polytechnic Institute has broken ground on its new 360,000-square foot, state-of-the-art computer chip fab at the Marcy Nanocenter, which will be home to AMS AG’s advanced sensor manufacturing, more than $2 billion in initial private investment, and generate more than 1,000 new jobs in the Mohawk Valley.
The groundbreaking marks a major milestone in Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s Nano Utica initiative, which is now projected to create at least 4,000 jobs over the next decade, and includes research and development at the Computer Chip Commercialization Center (QUAD C) in partnership with General Electric.
“Through the Nano Utica initiative, we’re bringing an unprecedented focus to the Mohawk Valley, and jumpstarting a high-tech manufacturing industry that will create thousands of good-paying jobs in both the immediate and long-term future,” Cuomo said. “This is another sign of how Upstate New York’s best days are ahead, and I look forward to seeing construction move forward.”
