Think Dutchess for Advanced Manufacturing

Today’s manufacturing requires a combination of innovative ideas, products and processes that utilizes a strong and stable workforce to meet high-tech demands in a global market.


Combining History and Innovation

For decades, advanced manufacturing companies like James L. Taylor, Schatz Bearing and Dorsey Metrology have been at the forefront of using new technology and techniques to gain a competitive edge. Dutchess County’s strong regional workforce, prime industrial properties, strategic location and competitive costs compared to metro areas attracts new investment and allows multi-generational businesses to continue to grow.

Home to a number of Fortune 500 companies and leaders in research, innovation and development, more than 75% of Dutchess County’s advanced manufacturers hold defense contracts. Meanwhile, our proximity to major highways and access to supply chain partners offers the strategic advantage which allows manufacturing companies to produce more efficiently.
