Advanced Materials

Companies working with advanced materials find many advantages to calling the Watervliet Arsenal home.  Not the least of which is the 24/7/365 security presence provided by the Department of Defense.

In addition to the value of the security, many companies in advanced materials, inside and outside of the Arsenal perimeter have benefited from strong working relationships with Benet Laboratories.  The Partnership can assist your company in developing a CRADA with Benet which helps to foster relationships between the public laboratory and private sector endeavors.

Solid Sealing Technology (SST) and Extreme Molding are two Partnership tenants that work in advanced materials and thrive at the Arsenal site.  Both companies have received substantial state funding that has enabled them to expand and create jobs.  In 2009, Extreme Molding was named the region’s small company of the year by the Business Review.
