Creation Technologies Establishes Newark, New York, Operations

Electronics manufacturer Creation Technologies, formally IEC, relocated and expanded operations in Wayne County, New York. The $22 million project is expected to create 360 jobs.

The new 150,000 square-foot manufacturing facility will provide electronic contract manufacturing services including printed circuit board assembly, cable and wire harness assembly, and comprehensive prototyping services for lifesaving and mission-critical products.

“As an electronics manufacturing services provider for some of the most demanding applications, we’re proud to be able to offer our customers even greater capacity and capabilities at our Newark facility,” said Creation Technologies Chairman and CEO Stephen P. DeFalco. “This investment will enable us to expand with our customers and provide the highest level of service and support.”

Empire State Development provided the project with a $2 million Upstate Revitalization Initiative Grant and has offered up to $3 million through the performance-based Excelsior Jobs Tax Credit Program in exchange for the company’s job creation commitments. In addition New York State Electric and Gas Corporation offered up to $600,000 in assistance for the project. Wayne County IDA also provided incentives.

“Creation Technologies’ new facility is not just creating a major hub for jobs in New York’s Finger Lakes Region – it’s also creating yet another hub for innovation upstate,” Governor Kathy Hochul noted. “Thanks to our shovel-ready sites, talented workforce, and successful business development efforts, New York is continuing to attract 21st century businesses that are creating the good-paying jobs of tomorrow, and we will continue to support the forward-thinking businesses creating breakthrough technologies that will move the Finger Lakes and all of New York State forward.”
