High speed internet service provider Greenlight Networks has opened its new corporate headquarters located in the Town of Henrietta in Monroe County, New York.
According to Empire State Development, the total project cost has been placed at $46 million. Greenlight Networks committed to creating up to 93 new jobs. The company currently has 78 employees, up from 53 a year ago.
Mark Murphy, President and CEO of Greenlight Networks said, “Our company was founded in Rochester and continues to grow our headquarters and our network footprint here thanks to the breadth of experienced telecom and internet professionals in the region and the available talent pool being cultivated at area colleges and universities including the Rochester Institute of Technology, SUNY Geneseo, Monroe Community College and the University of Rochester. Contributing to our growth in this area is also the overwhelming support of our customers and increasing demand from prospective customers who need access to high speed internet now more than ever.”
Empire State Development Acting Commissioner and President & CEO-designate Eric Gertler said, “Greenlight Networks’ decision to further grow its state-of-the-art business in Upstate New York is a great example of how our economy can build back better and stronger than before. Through the Governor’s focused efforts to fuel the revitalization of the regional economy, tech companies are leveraging local talent and resources to create the jobs and market opportunities of tomorrow.”
Empire State Development is assisting Greenlight Networks with its continued growth with up to $1.4 million through the Excelsior Tax Credit Program. Greater Rochester Enterprise also assisted with the project.
“We are committed to continuing the economic turnaround we’ve seen in upstate New York working to attract businesses, jobs and strengthen the economy," said Lieutenant Governor Kathy Hochul. "The opening of Greenlight Networks’ new headquarters in Henrietta complements our efforts to create new opportunities by adding up to 93 new jobs and providing ultra-high-speed internet and broadband services to residents and businesses in the area. Investments like these are helping New York continue to lead the way and build back better for a more inclusive, innovative and stronger future.”
The state-of-the-art 20,000 square-foot facility houses company leadership, administration, customer support and engineering teams along with its recently formed joint venture, Greenlight LeChase Construction.
Matt Hurlbutt, president and CEO, Greater Rochester Enterprise said, “Greenlight Networks continues to expand in the Greater Rochester, NY region to capitalize on the depth of talent and telecommunications expertise available in our community.”
