Sullivan County: The "Place to Be"
The Partnership has positioned the county for regional and national corporate development in our promotional activities. With the extraordinary attractions of Resorts World Catskills, Kartrite Resort and Indoor Waterpark, YO1, and others; an influx of investments and jobs is underway. Nearly 3,000 new jobs have been created, in the last five years with the Sullivan Catskills leading New York State in job growth this year once again. We have welcomed investments from Kohl’s, The Eldred Preserve, Northgate, Foster Hospitality Supply, Metallized Carbon, PepsiCo, Crystal Run Healthcare, Nonni’s, Monticello Motor Club, Sullivan Fabricators, Hampton Inn, and many others. The Partnership looks to identify and assist ancillary businesses now and into the future as we continue to use the strength of our investors, strategic relationships, and the region to market our comparative advantages and continue to make the case for external investment into Sullivan County.
The Partnership is currently focused on attracting businesses that will expand and enhance the existing base of tourism, light manufacturing, logistics, healthcare, agribusiness, and green development industry clusters. Tourism continues to be a leading economic driver in Sullivan County, generating more than $515 million annually. Light manufacturing and distribution continue to grow, maximizing low-cost labor, local and state incentives, and relative proximity to the New York metro market. Healthcare investment in Sullivan County continues to outpace other sectors as it has continued to grow and add investment and jobs for over three decades. New industries are sprouting in the software development and tech sector and a growing cannabis sector is promising as investors have secured sites in anticipation of a state license. All eyes are on Sullivan County as the "Place to Be" with natural growth patterns supporting concerted efforts to help grow our economy.
