AI Equipment Maker Will Expand at Navy Yard

Nanotronics will expand its production center into historic Building 20 at the Brooklyn Navy Yard. The expansion, partly funded by a $2/5-million state grant that Gov. Andrew Cuomo announced last month, is intended to accommodate increasing demand for Nanotronics’ AI-powered industrial inspection systems, and new factory control products in both domestic and international markets.

The firm hopes to be an anchor as the Navy Yard becomes a thriving urban manufacturing center. The projected $11.4 million construction of the 34,000-square-foot facility will add 190 factory-based jobs to Nanotronics’ current roster of 34 employees.

“Our products harness the convergence of today’s technologies to support the infrastructure of tomorrow,” said Nanotronics CEO Matthew Putman. “This new facility—in the heart of New York City—builds on Nanotronics’ legacy of invention to help reinstall industry and manufacturing as the bedrock of our Brooklyn community.”
