[Empire State Development (ESD)] said Optimax Systems Inc. is adding a 36,000-square-foot addition to its existing facility on Dean Parkway off Route 104. ESD, the state’s economic development agency, said the expanded operations, with support from ESD, “will allow Optimax Systems to raise the bar when it comes to supplying optics for its customers and will help the company solidify its brand and credibility in the worldwide optics manufacturing community.”
Besides the 50 jobs to be created over the next five years, another 355 positions will be retained, ESD said. In 2018, the company committed to creating up to 59 jobs at the site through previous support from the state and it has already exceeded that commitment, ESD noted.
