Governor Andrew M. Cuomo today announced that optics manufacturer Rochester Precision Optics will expand its headquarters in the Town of Henrietta, Monroe County, adding more than 200 new jobs to the region. The company's growth will accommodate two new projects—the relocation of an infrared research and development company from Florida acquired by Rochester Precision Optics in May, as well as the addition of 20,000 square-feet at the facility to increase production across the company's plastics, glass, coating, diamond turning and IT divisions. During the expansion, Rochester Precision Optics will retain the 275 jobs currently held at the John Street site.

"By actively engaging with the private sector and incentivizing growth, companies like Rochester Precision Optics continue to expand their operations in New York, strengthening regional economies and creating good-paying jobs across the state," Cuomo said. "This expansion project is a testament to the unique assets of the Finger Lakes and to the Finger Lakes Forward plan which is fostering innovation and transforming the region."
