Village Set to Welcome New Biotech Company
Saranac Lake will officially welcome its newest corporate citizen and biotech company, Active Motif, at 6 pm, December 4th, with a reception and ribbon-cutting event which will be held at its 21 Main Street location.
This new Active Motif site is in the former “water building” and is leased from the village after having undergone extensive renovations over the last 6 months.
Active Motif follows nearby biotech, Myriad/RBM, which opened last June, into Saranac Lake’s new “Biotech-Cluster,” which is also comprised of nearby Trudeau Institute and Bionique.
Mayor Clyde Rabideau commented, “This emerging industry offers good-paying, sustainable jobs to our Adirondack region as well as a large and positive presence in our downtown.”
The Village of Saranac Lake was recognized earlier this year by the New York Conference of Mayors for developing its biotech-cluster and garnered the first place Local government Achievement Award for Economic Development.
Rabideau said, “We’re now poised to go after other biotechs and bring them into our Saranac Lake community in the years to come.”
The public is invited and encouraged to attend the welcoming event—at no charge—by making reservations with the village Community Development office, at 891-4150.
The cost for the reception is entirely underwritten by Bernier and Carr, the renovation project engineering company, Integrated Rigging and Contracting, the project’s general contractor and Murray Electric, the project’s electrical contractor.
