    CANON USA TO KEEP HEADQUARTERS IN N.Y. STATE
    MELVILLE – Canon U.S.A. will build its new headquarters in Melville, keeping one of the biggest electronics and imaging manufacturers in the world on Long Island and ensuring that more than 2,000 New York jobs will be created or retained over the next several years. The Governor was joined by State and local elected officials to make the announcement today at Canon U.S.A.’s current headquarters in Lake Success.

    “I am pleased to announce that Canon U.S.A. is staying in New York,” Governor David Paterson said. “The work undertaken in the company’s new state-of-the-art facility will not only provide long-term economic security for thousands of New Yorkers, it will also create jobs for many still struggling to climb out from under the current economic crisis. These will be New Economy jobs, focused on cutting edge products and 21st century technology.”

    Last month, the New York State Department of Transportation and the Empire State Development Corp. struck the deal with Canon U.S.A. that cemented the move. NYSDOT will add one lane each to the service roads between exits 48 and 49 off the Long Island Expressway in order to mitigate traffic concerns. NYSDOT has allocated $8 million for the road construction, and that money will help put people to work right away.

    A leading provider of consumer, business-to-business and industrial digital imaging solutions, Canon U.S.A. currently employs approximately 1,200 people in its Lake Success facility and expects to employ approximately 2,000 within 10 years at its new headquarters in Melville. The $636 million headquarters facility will be built to satisfy LEED green building standards.The Long Island Association estimates that the Canon U.S.A. project could increase Long Island’s gross regional product by $1.3 billion and create up to 10,000 associated local jobs.
