New York's Dutchess County is within a 6-hour drive of 68 million U.S. and Canadian customers, 21% of American manufacturers and a $227B retail sales market via major transit hubs I-84 and I-87. With award-winning higher education, a skilled workforce, competitive real estate, attractive incentive packages and utility rates, it's no wonder why major companies such as Gap, GlobalFoundries and IBM collectively employ more than 10,000 people here.
