ENDICOTT, NY – Another clean energy company has announced plans to locate a manufacturing operation on the Huron Campus in Endicott.

Ubiquity builds photovoltaic panels intended for the aerospace and power generation markets with a focus on ultra-low carbon, high efficiency, Made-In-America products.
Village Trustee Nick Burlingame says this $61M project in conjunction with the Imperium 3 lithium ion battery manufacturing plant makes Endicott a leader in green technology.
“This is great news for Endicott and the Huron Campus. This campus was designed for manufacturing, and our community was designed for manufacturing. So, this is an ideal fit for Endicott and Broome County,” he said.
Ubiquity plans to create up to 150 highly-skilled jobs with a goal of being fully operational by the end of next year.
The project is receiving $3M in tax credits from the state.
