Griffiss Business and Technology Park is within 13 miles of three (3), I-90 interchanges and is within a day’s drive of one third the U.S. economy and more than half the Canadian economy, including less than five hours to the Port of NY/NJ, which is arguably the world’s logistics hub.
Once a Cold War Era Air Force installation, the 3,200 Acre Griffiss Business and Technology Park has been transformed into a vibrant and diverse regional hi-tech employment center that includes the Griffiss International Airport. Griffiss is currently home to more than 75 employers and nearly 5,900 employees from over 20. A major part of Griffiss' employer base consists of national and local technology firms that are directly involved with the Air Force Research Laboratory – a $1.4 billion economic and research engine at the center of the Park.
Additionally, Griffiss is home to a UAS Test Site, which is one of seven FAA designated test sites in the United States. There are a number of UAS firms that are currently utilizing Griffiss to test and qualify their systems. Since 1995, there has been approximately $650 Million in public and private investment that has transformed Griffiss into a key part of the innovation ecosystem that is helping to transform the Upstate New York economy.
