The Arsenal Business & Technology campus is located in the center of New York’s Tech Valley. Nearly 300,000 square feet has been developed in the past several years featuring high tech manufacturing, R&D and laboratory facilities, biotechnology, energy, advanced materials, and corporate office. There are several clean rooms on site built and operated by leading global nanotechnology companies.
The Arsenal Business & Technology Partnership was created in 1999 by government, business and educational leaders to assure the long-term sustainability of the Watervliet Arsenal in the regional economy. The Partnership has successfully developed close to 300,000 square feet of previously underutilized space on the 143 acre site. A not-for-profit entity, the Partnership has been named by the U.S. Army as the site’s exclusive economic developer.

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. The Arsenal is also home to Benet Laboratories, the Army’s principal research and engineering facility for assigned weapon systems. 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. The growth of the Capital Region’s nanotechnology sector is being fueled through strategic partnerships with New York State government, The College of Nanoscale Science & Engineering (CNSE) at the University at Albany, and with business groups like the Center for Economic Growth (CEG).
The future is bright at the Watervliet Arsenal. As the Tech Valley initiative has prospered, the Partnership has successfully attracted new tenants to the site and helped them to integrate into the regional economy.
