  Catalysts For pro·ac·tive Companies


We are excited to announce that the Hudson Valley Technology Development Center (HVTDC) is rebranding!

HVTDC, now doing business as the Manufacturing and Technology Enterprise Center (MTEC) is taking the company to a new level with a fresh face and new opportunities. Change is good - and we are certainly undergoing a lot of it.

 
Now clients get more than just office space.

MTEC has relocated in close proximity to SUNY New  Paltz, o pening up a 40,000+ square foot  facility for our clients.  This will provide access to t op of the line equipment, hardware, and software in addition to economic development opportunities for clients. Our move was about much more than just office space.












As part of our new Food & Beverage Initiative, MTEC would like to introduce ourselves to Hudson Valley's finest food and beverage manufacturers. For all industry news, visit our Food and Beverage page.
