Xylem’s more than 100 employees moved from 1133 Westchester Ave. to 1 International Drive on December 9 and the move continues today; it has a 10-year lease for 67,000 square feet at the Reckson Executive Park.
“We’re excited to be moving to our new location, and are pleased to be staying in Westchester County,” said Xylem CEO and President Steve Loranger. “This move represents Xylem’s commitment to growth and innovation. Our new, expanded space is a modern, world-class headquarters designed to encourage collaboration and training.”
Xylem was spun off from ITT Corporation in 2011 and it employs about 800 people in New York in Rye Brook and at manufacturing and administrative facilities in Cheektowaga, Seneca Falls and Auburn.
The federal Securities and Exchange Commission required Xylem’s move as part of its separation from ITT.
The Empire State Development agency gave Xylem $1.35 million in Excelsior Jobs Program tax credits and a $1 million capital grant to remain in New York.
The Westchester County Industrial Development Agency gave Xylem an estimated $562,000 in sales tax breaks on its estimated $11.6 million relocation.
