For nearly 200 years, the 143-acre Watervliet Arsenal has served as a U.S. Army manufacturing facility. On site, there is a total of 72 buildings and over 2.2 million square feet of space. The Arsenal’s reputation as “America’s Cannon Factory” is a testament to the vital role the facility has played in America’s defense since 1813.

Benet has a staff of 300 scientists, engineers and support personnel.
Today, the Arsenal Business & Technology Partnership, has positioned the Arsenal as a critical hub in New York’s Tech Valley.
