Dynamax Imaging LLC, a developer of high-performance image sensors that had outgrown its current facility, will remain in western upstate New York by relocating to the College of Nanoscale Science and Engineering’s Smart System Technology and Commercialization Center of Excellence, east of Rochester in Canandaigua, New York.
Dynamax Imaging will install over $3 million in high-tech equipment and establish more than 100 high-tech jobs at CNSE’s STC over the next three to five years, Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s Office said. This will include the location of the majority of its engineers, scientists and researchers from other U.S. locations to CNSE’s STC this year, as well as the hiring of 30 to 50 cleanroom operator and technician positions to support the company’s research, prototyping, and pilot production activities.
Dr. Jim Tan, President and CEO of Dynamax Imaging LLC, said, “We are delighted that the best opportunity to support the continuing growth of Dynamax Imaging is right here in New York. By tapping into the world-class, first-rate capabilities with the most advanced semiconductor equipment at CNSE’s STC, we look forward to advancing our innovative image sensor technologies, developing new products and establishing new partnerships, all of which will enable the company to grow and flourish, and maintain the reputation of New York as the ‘imaging capital of the world.’ This partnership will also help to keep the United States in the forefront of worldwide advancements in high-tech CMOS imaging products, which are necessary for critical applications in many industrial imaging market applications.”
“Dynamax Imaging’s decision to move to the College of Nanoscale Science and Engineering’s STC demonstrates the continuing success of our investments in growing nanotechnology jobs and companies in New York,” Cuomo said. “Through this move, Dynamax Imaging will keep and create more than 100 good paying, high-tech jobs in the State of New York. We are pleased to have a leading company like Dynamax call New York home, keeping us at the forefront in the field of nanoscale technology.”
Dr. Alain E. Kaloyeros, CNSE Senior Vice President and CEO, said, “Fueled by the leadership of Governor Andrew Cuomo, New York is recognized worldwide as the place to be in the global nanotechnology industry. The decision by Dynamax Imaging to stay and grow in New York is proof positive that the Governor’s strategy is working, keeping small and medium-sized nanotechnology firms in the Empire State while also attracting leading high-tech companies from around the world.”
