from Halahan

NEW WINDSOR – The Orange County business community came out in large numbers Tuesday evening to celebrate its successes in 2017 as the Orange County Partnership hosted its annual event in New Windsor, handing out its top three awards.

Partnership President Maureen Halahan said while there was much to celebrate this year, more projects are in the offing going forward. Her agency will be concentrating on manufacturing in 2018.

“We do have quite a robust pipeline right now with a lot of projects in the pipeline that have not closed yet, so we will have more to announce next year,” Halahan said. “Focusing on our three cities is always important to fill and transform our three cities. Manufacturing is always good.”

The Partnership presented its Spirit of Innovation Award to Advanced Testing for its mentorship program; the Quality of Life Award to Norwegian Air for its international service from Stewart Airport; and the Alliance for Balanced Growth Golden Shovel Award to McKesson.

New York Lt. Governor Kathy Hochul attended the evening event praising the county for its proactive economic development efforts.
