Who We Are
The Accelerator, with locations in New Windsor and Middletown close to major interstates, is a certified New York State incubator focused on bringing manufacturing back to the mid-Hudson Valley. Powered by the Orange County Industrial Development Agency, The Accelerator works to attract manufacturing-based businesses in the areas of fashion design and production, bottling, artisan manufacturing and more by providing below-market occupancy costs, workforce training, mentoring programs, easy access to experienced professionals and a high-tech plug-and-play environment with SMARTT Pods and a host of other resources. The Accelerator offers both on- and off-site clientele, referred to as Resident Clients and Associate Clients, respectively.
Resident Clients house all or some of their manufacturing processes on-site at The Accelerator. They have easy access to our hands-on management team and amenities. Some of the additional perks include access to Program Managers, workshops, training and below market occupancy costs.
Associate Clients are located off-site, but have access to our management team, industry professionals and scheduled use of The Accelerator’s conference rooms.
