Dynamax Imaging to come to STC in Canandaigua | News
A manufacturer's upcoming relocation from Cortland County will bring about the creation and/or retention of more than 100 high-tech jobs in Canandaigua, according to the governor.
Dynamax Imaging LLC — a developer of high-performance image sensors — will be relocating to the College of Nanoscale Science and Engineering’s (CNSE) Smart System Technology and Commercialization Center of Excellence (STC) in Canandaigua.
The move will bring the STC — the former Infotonics — to full capacity, according to Gov. Andrew Cuomo.
Dynamax specializes in image sensors that are used in HDTV camcorders and flat-panel displays, along with security and surveillance systems for the military. The move was needed because the company had outgrown its previous location in Homer, Cortland County, Cuomo said.
Additionally, the company has operations in several countries.
Dynamax will install more than $3 million in equipment — plus establish the 100 jobs — at the STC over a three- to five-year time span. The majority of the company’s engineers, scientists and researchers from other U.S. locations will move to the STC this year, and it will hire 30 to 50 cleanroom operator and technician positions to support the company’s research, prototyping and pilot production activities.
“We look forward to advancing our innovative image sensor technologies, developing new products and establishing new partnerships, all of which will enable the company to grow and flourish, and maintain the reputation of New York as the ‘imaging capital of the world,’” said Jim Tan, president and CEO of Dynamax, in a statement.
