A Message from the Long Island Regional Director
It is my pleasure to welcome you to Long Island and the
numerous assets New York State has to offer. Major
businesses are choosing New York to locate and expand their
operations. To remain competitive, New York State has
implemented progressive economic development strategies and
aggressive financial and tax incentives to stimulate growth
and job creation.
The economic potency of Long Island lies in its wealth of academic and research institutions, its high quality, highly skilled labor force, its proximity to New York City, and its extensive transportation network. Industry clusters on Long Island include aerospace defense, pharmaceutical, financial services, biotech biomedical, agriculture, software and information technology, printing, food processing, government, travel and hospitality.
We are particularly proud that Long Island is home to many outstanding and internationally known employers such as Brookhaven National Laboratory, Cold Spring Harbor Lab, CA (formerly Computer Associates), Canon USA, Henry Schein, Estee Lauder, Pall Corporation, Broadridge Financial Services, Northrop Grumman Corporation, Griffon Corporation, Motorola, and NBTY. Our healthcare network is exceptional, led by North-Shore Long Island Jewish Health System, Stony Brook Medical Center, Winthrop and Nassau County Medical Center.
The staff of the Long Island Regional office of Empire State Development will work closely with you to identify and fulfill your business goals. Economic development programs are available to assist in building a new facility, relocating a business, expanding operations and workforce, and entering new markets and international arenas. We look forward to working with you!
