Eastward bound: Bantam Tools opens new location in Peekskill

Posted: Updated:

A manufacturing company from the West Coast is opening its doors at a new location in the Hudson Valley.

Bantam Tools is moving east to bring innovation to Peekskill.

Bantam Tools owner/CEO Bre Pettis says the company makes machines that help engineers and developers to create products faster.

The company says only two employees moved to Peekskill so the 10 other employees will be new and local. The company hopes to expand to 54 new positions.

The move was solidified by the state's Excelsior jobs program to encourage companies to relocate to New York state.
