A local high-tech company is expanding and adding jobs.
Governor Andrew Cuomo announced on Tuesday that IDEX Health & Science will expand its optics and photonics operation in Henrietta, establishing an Optical Center of Excellence.
The company plans to eventually lease close to 100,000 square feet in a newly constructed building on John Street.
Cuomo says the project will create up to 34 full time jobs and help retain 186 other positions. Empire State Development will provide up to $2.4 million in exchange for job creation commitments.
