A Canadian company is expected to spend up to $ 61 million to establish a production plant in IBM’s former manufacturing complex in Endicott.
Governor Kathy Hochul announced Wednesday that Ubiquity Solar plans to reallocate 800,000 square feet of vacant space on the Huron campus.
Hochul said the company will establish photovoltaic solar panel manufacturing operations at the former IBM site.
According to a press release from the governor’s office, Ubiquity Solar “expects to create up to 150 highly skilled jobs in the region”.
The announcement indicates that development of the site is already underway. He did not say when this work started.
Hochul said “the company expects to be fully operational” at Endicott by the end of 2022.
The company intends to produce solar cells for aerospace customers and for the power generation market.
The state will provide up to $ 3 million in grants to Ubiquity Solar depending on the number of jobs created by the company.
