ALBANY -- Fremont, Calif.-based Group4 Labs Inc., which builds semiconductor materials for radar systems, tablet computers, smartphones, and cellular transmission towers, among other uses, will open a manufacturing facility at the College of Nanoscale Science and Engineering at the University at Albany, Gov. Andrew Cuomo announced Monday.
The facility will create 10 jobs initially, with as many as 50 by 2015, Cuomo said. Group4 Labs previously announced a facility in Syracuse that will employ up to 94 people by 2015.
The company will use space in CNSE's clean room, installing its own equipment. The New York State Energy Research and Development Authority will invest $1.5 million in the venture, and the deal is expected to attract another $4 million in private funding.
