Advanced manufacturing, one of the key industry sectors that Westchester County is looking to grow in 2021, is finding room to expand at Robert Martin Company’s Mid-Westchester Executive Park in Hawthorne.
This week Robert Martin announced that PTI, a leader in advanced manufacturing technologies, has signed a lease for 13,650 square feet of expansion space at 8 Skyline Drive. PTI, which manufactures non-destructive package inspection technologies for the pharmaceutical, medical device and food industries, had previously leased 14,255 square feet at 8 Skyline Drive in 2018. With this new lease, PTI now occupies approximately 28,000 square feet at 8 Skyline Drive, nearly four times the size of its original offices in Tuckahoe.
“PTI’s considerable expansion at our Mid-Westchester Executive Park represents the kind of entrepreneurial, innovative technology companies we are targeting for growth through the RMC Bio1 initiative we launched in late 2019,” said Tim Jones, CEO of Robert Martin Company.
“We envisioned Skyline Drive evolving into ‘Bio Boulevard,’ as more STEM-related companies join the fold and eventually connect into the larger ‘Innovation Corridor’ forming around an epicenter in Westchester County, which includes formidable assets such as Regeneron, Acorda Therapeutics, New York Medical College, BioInc@NYMC, Westchester Medical Center and the planned North 60 life sciences campus,” said RMC Bio1 Managing Director Laurence Gottlieb.
“PTI’s expansion at 8 Skyline Drive is great news for Westchester County. Innovative companies such as PTI, which is a leader in the field of advanced manufacturing, bring new energy to Westchester’s vibrant and growing economy,” Bridget Gibbons, Director of the Westchester County Office of Economic Development
The PTI lease is the second transaction in several months at Skyline Drive which is emerging as a center for companies in the bioscience and medical device field, In October, Clarapath leased 7,000 square feet at 12 Skyline Drive.
