Milton high-tech manufacturer to expand with state aid


MILTON – The state’s Empire State Development Corporation will provide $150,000 in Excelsior Jobs Program tax credits to Sono-Tek, a high-tech manufacturer, for the Milton-based company to expand its operations from 13,000 square feet to 32,000 SF and add six jobs to the 60 existing full-time jobs. Those new jobs will be created over a 10-year period.

The company, which manufactures thin film ultrasonic coating machinery used in the medical, electronic, advanced energy and industrial markets, will invest $550,000 for capital improvements and purchase of machinery and equipment.

Marlborough Town Supervisor Al Lanzetta said Sono-Tek has been “an integral part” of the community.

“I’ve been in the facility a couple of times and I am very impressed by the technology that they produce. As a retired IBM’er from 2013 and being in the engineering field, I was very impressed,” he said.

County Executive Patrick Ryan said Sono-Tek is “exactly the kind of company that we want to see grow and thrive here.”
