New York State has announced a $1 billion, three-story, 100,000-square-foot coffee-maker factory it says will create jobs, expand supply chains and support regional coffee culture.
The facility, which is the latest development in a wave of new manufacturing projects in the area, will be part of the New York-New Jersey-New York metro area’s $3.3 billion Innovation Innovation Hub.
The hub will include a manufacturing plant that is expected to open by March of next year, with plans to expand production to about 5,000 metric tons annually.
The New York Daily News first reported the news of the facility.
The $1 million, three story, 100-bed, 250-person coffee-makers factory will employ 1,200 people, according to a statement from the company.
The company will open the new facility in the mid-summer, and the state is committed to investing in the facility, it said.
The state is also investing $100 million in New York’s existing, five-story factory, which will be operational by mid-March, according the statement.
The new facility will also employ 2,000 people, the company said.
It was built in collaboration with the state Department of Industrial Relations, the New Jersey Office of Industrial and Business Innovation, the State of New York, the Federal Reserve Bank of New Jersey and the Newburgh Chamber of Commerce.
