Firm to create 100 jobs at Eastman Business Park

Rochester Business Journal
October 3, 2013

NOHMs Technologies Inc. will locate its new nanoscale battery materials manufacturing operations at the Eastman Business Park and create 100 jobs over three years, officials announced Thursday.

The work will be done in Building 320 on Ridgeway Avenue, with 8,000 square feet of office and lab space converted to research, development and advanced manufacturing for lithium sulfur battery materials and battery cell prototypes, officials said.

The Lexington, Ky.-based company will get $1.5 million in state funding for the project through the Finger Lakes Regional Economic Development Council, officials said.

The work is scheduled to be completed in February.

“Rochester is a natural fit for a materials company transitioning to manufacturing development because of the 100-plus year history of advanced materials innovation and manufacturing,” NOHMs CEO Nathan Ball said in a statement.

“We are happy to be a part of the excitement and growth in this sector in this region, and the resources and facilities that are available to us in Rochester and at Eastman Business Park will enable us to be successful in a very competitive high-risk, high-rewards industry.”
