Creating partnerships that bring jobs and economic benefit to the area is a primary goal for the City of Hornell IDA. Our relationship with Alstom is a fantastic example of such a partnership. In 1997, the IDA successfully negotiated with Alstom to sign a long-term lease with us for over 800,000 square feet of existing space and since have built a new car facility for $6.6 million and leased to them. Alstom’s contracts for new and remanufactured locomotives and transportation systems continue to create jobs for the community and keep Hornell on the map as a railroad city.
Nestled in the Canisteo Valley of Upstate New York, Hornell has all the business performance capabilities of a large city, but with the comforts and affordability of a smaller town. We have a skilled work force, a low cost of living and, most importantly, a high quality of life.
