Haledyne, LLC, a startup that is developing a method for disinfecting the public areas of hospitals using ultraviolet (UV) irradiance, announced is relocating its headquarters from suburban Cleveland to our supporting member The Tech Garden in downtown Syracuse. At the Tech Garden, Haledyne will become a client of the NYSERDA-sponsored Cleantech Center incubator program and a research partner of several New York State universities and hospitals.
The company received an incentive grant and tax credits from Empire State Development, and because the UV technology is likely to be more energy-efficient than disinfection and sterilization systems that rely exclusively on advanced filtering of large quantities of air, Haledyne will also receive support from a partnership of NYSERDA and National Grid, and technical services from the state-sponsored Syracuse Center of Excellence in Energy and Environmental Systems.
The company currently has four employees with immediate plans add eight more, and is targeting a 100-person production facility that may qualify for the additional tax credits. For more information see, the official news release (also attached) and coverage in the Post-Standard and Business Journal of Central New York.
Haledyne is also conducting research in partnership with the biosciences unit at SUNY's Fredonia State University, where its local offices will be stationed at our supporting member the SUNY Fredonia Technology Incubator in Dunkirk, according to the Haledyne website.
