    Hacker Boat Company Selects Queensbury Business Park for New Manufacturing and Office Location in Warren County


    Company projects future employment of 80 people in 90,000 square-foot facility on 17 acres


    Hacker-Craft CEO George Badcock said of the move, “We are very much looking forward to this relocation, one which will enable us to consolidate operations which are now at two different sites. The building will be large enough so that we can expand our production and our restoration businesses while enabling us to build larger boats for the international market, notably tenders for mega yachts. The proximity to the Warren County Airport will make access easier for our customers who travel by private aircraft. The site’s being close to the Northway and more convenient to the Capital District transportation hub in Albany are added benefits.”

    “The agreement we have reached with Hacker Boat Company is a large step towards realizing our vision for this specific park, and the leading edge of our overall vision for drawing businesses to additional commercial and industrial land throughout Warren County,” noted Edward Bartholomew, President of EDC Warren County. “In Warren County, we have fantastic advantages to attract employers, including our skilled workforce, the airport and other transportation infrastructure, and our proximity to the rapidly expanding Capital Region. EDC has many properties to market that will meet the needs of our existing businesses to expand or for new businesses that seek to locate in Warren County.”
