    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.
