D3 Engineering Announces Expansion Plans
Rochester Chamber member D3 Engineering announced plans to expand its operations in Monroe County. The company has grown significantly over the past several years and is moving into a new larger facility on Lucius Gordon Drive in the Town of Henrietta. The move will allow the company, which specializes in the development of vision, sensing, autonomous, and power systems, to create up to 50 new jobs over the next five years. 65 jobs are being retained. D3 Engineering expects to be fully operational at the new location during the spring of 2020.
D3 Engineering CEO Scott Reardon said, “Almost 20 years ago, D3 existed in a lab of one of our customers in this building. We are excited to return to our roots and plan to continue the incubator feel of the building which will inspire other innovators and entrepreneurs to work on cutting-edge technology."
To support the successful embedded system design firm with its expansion, ESD is offering up to $250,000 through the Excelsior Jobs Tax Credit Program in exchange for the company’s job creation commitments. The total cost of the consolidation project has been placed at $877,000.
Empire State Development Acting Commissioner and President and CEO-designate Eric Gertler said, “D3 Engineering’s plans to expand in Monroe County will create new jobs and boost the region’s entrepreneurial ecosystem, reflecting the success of our strategic support for growing and revitalizing the Upstate economy.”
