The Middletown Regional Airport and the associated companies recently invested more than $300,000 in facility upgrades, including $100,000 in technology and the creation of an entire wing of new lounge, office and classroom spaces. The airport is planning $100,000 in upgrades to hanger lighting and HVAC systems, as well as $340,000 in runway, approach and ramp lighting upgrades. The airport is also proposing an investment of $260,000 in ramp expansion and resurfacing projects through our partnership with the FAA Capital Investment Fund.
Water and Food Technology
As other regions experience a scarcity of water, Middletown’s unlimited, high quality water is a clear advantage. We are working with our regional partners to explore strategies to facilitate water and food technology growth.
One of the newest companies to relocate to Middletown is Avure Technologies, a producer of high-pressure technology equipment. They chose their new site because it meets all their key criteria for efficient press manufacturing, as well as outstanding proximity to major transportation corridors. Avure officials noted that their new facility is well situated to serve their largest and fastest growing market. Avure worked collaboratively with both state and city officials as well as the site owner on a facility development plan and incentive package to meet Avure’s long-term objectives.
