Empire State Development announced today that Beta Technologies received a $20 million state grant to help with their $41 million expansion of their technology campus at Plattsburgh International Airport. Beta Technologies is a leader in the aerospace industry and is an important asset to the North Country’s transportation manufacturing sector.
“Congratulations to Beta Technologies!” said Assemblyman Billy Jones (D-Chateaugay Lake). “Beta Technologies is at the cutting edge of electric aerospace engineering, and it is remarkable that this technology is manufactured right here in the North Country. After attending meetings with the Beta Technologies team and State and County officials, I am confident that this funding will not only continue to expand the manufacturing transportation sector but will also create jobs and more opportunities for young students in the region through their partnership with CV-TEC to be at the forefront of these new technologies. Beta Technologies is a major player in the world of aerospace technology, and I want to thank Clinton County for securing this funding.”
