Democrat and Chronicle: Big job-growth potential seen for regional high-tech center
Democrat and Chronicle
The STC Center in Canandaigua, a high-tech facility specializing in nanoscale processing, has received a key government designation that could bring a flood of lucrative military contracts, Gov. Andrew Cuomo said Wednesday.
The Department of Defense award makes the STC Center the second location in the nation to be designated a “trusted foundry.”
That classification allows the Pentagon, other federal agencies and contractors and foreign allies to use the STC Center for a range of defense and intelligence applications.
The award could bring up to 1,000 jobs to the center over time, officials said.
