Nanotronics Cuts Ribbon on Brooklyn Navy Yard Headquarters
City and state officials joined the Brooklyn Navy Yard Development Corporation (BNYDC) and Nanotronics Wednesday for a ribbon-cutting ceremony to celebrate the opening of the company’s flagship manufacturing center located in the Navy Yard’s historic Building 20, a 150-year-old former shipbuilding factory. Nanotronics, a science technology company, will use the new 45,000-square-foot building as its headquarters.
A Navy Yard tenant since 2016, Nanotronics will also be able to recruit top talent locally through New York institutions including the Navy Yard’s Employment Center and STEAM Center (the Yard’s on-site vocational high school), the City University of New York, Cornell Tech, New York University and Columbia University.
“The Navy Yard is quickly becoming a national model for bringing sustainable manufacturing jobs back to cities, and companies like Nanotronics are leading that charge,” said David Ehrenberg, president & CEO of the BNYDC.
