(Momentive), a global high-performance silicones and specialties company, has signed a lease for 66,430 square feet at the 207-acre premier business and research campus, owned by industry leader, Industrial Realty Group, LLC. Momentive is relocating from Tarrytown, N.Y, to open a Global Innovation Center (GIC) in early 2023 to support its growing Performance Additives business.

The GIC will be in good company on our campus, where we have created an environment conducive to innovation, ingenuity and industry that offers an outstanding setting for long-term growth.”
Momentive’s new facility at Hudson Valley iCampus will feature modern office and laboratory space within a collaborative atmosphere of innovation, fostered by campus leaders and neighboring companies such as Pfizer Inc., RK Pharma Solutions, Sanofi, and more. The mixed- use campus features laboratory, office, GMP manufacturing space, and build-to-suit options, which allow maximum flexibility for Momentive’s future growth.
The campus is known for historic, breakthrough vaccines developed on the grounds including vaccines for smallpox, typhoid, polio and more. With this history of innovation, Momentive will join the ranks of the renowned community at Hudson Valley iCampus — experts shaping the modern world.
“This move is representative of Momentive’s enduring commitment to help solve each of our customer’s needs around the world with high-performance, trend-driven innovative products, and solutions, just as we have for 75 years,” said V.P.
