A locally-based high-tech manufacturing firm is moving to the City of Binghamton.

ScottTech outgrew is facility in the Town of Conklin and recently sold it.

That meant it needed a new home fast.

It found it at 336 Court St., which is where Hannsman's Mills used to be.

ScottTech designs automated material handling systems for warehouse and distribution centers and develops high-speed packaging and processing lines for food and beverage industries.

The company sells its products across the United States and internationally,including to clients such as True Value, Atlantic Healthcare and Universal Instruments.
ScottTech is moving its 14 local well-paid employees to Binghamton and plans to add more in the future.

ScottTech will be tailoring the building to suit its needs and help workers stay green.

"Our company is a high-tech company. Some of our employees drive electric cars. One of the things that we'll be doing here is adding electric car charging stations to this facility. That will be open to the public. We know there aren't very many in the City of Binghamton, but we'd like to be the start of that. We're also looking at, the south side of the building has a great southern exposure, so we're looking at adding solar to this facility," said managing partner Mike Yezzi.

Peter Quinn says: The Binghamton facility is at least five times larger than its current location.

ScottTech will be doing work on the building to help make sure it doesn't flood again from water back-up like it did twice in 2006.

Binghamton Mayor Rich David says the city streamlined the approval process for the company, shortening it from taking months to only weeks.
