NEWBURGH – The Orange County Partnership has announced that Tesla, the renowned electric car manufacturer, has selected Orange County as the home of their new regional distribution facility for vehicle parts. Tesla will occupy 927,000 square feet built on spec by Matrix Development Group at 1396 Route 300 in the Town of Newburgh.
Matrix secured approvals for the business park located on Route 300 in 2022 and has since constructed two buildings at 215,000 and 927,000 SF. The property, located directly across from the Newburgh Mall and adjacent to the I-84/I-87 interchange, is considered a strategic location for the logistics and warehouse/distribution sector. Based in NJ, Matrix is a highly accomplished development firm with a rich portfolio of projects in Orange County including: AmerisourceBergen, wineshipping.com and other projects throughout the tri-state area.
“Matrix has a long history of undertaking quality projects in Orange County. The Tesla signing is yet another example of the value of speculative development, and exactly why we supported the approval of this robust business park. Our market is strong – we will continue to support site development in the effort to attract more quality companies to Orange County. We welcome Tesla to Orange County with open arms,” said Maureen Halahan, President, and CEO of the Orange County Partnership.
“Tesla is changing the automotive industry in America and abroad. Having a relationship with Tesla in Orange County can raise income levels for our area and create good jobs. It will also increase competition for our workforce and is another major name in the American economy choosing to come to Orange County,” said Orange County Executive, Steven M. Neuhaus.
