Getting Started


First, what is T-SEC?

T-SEC is a 501©(3) non-profit focused on economic development for the creation and/or growth of businesses capable of generating good-paying jobs

We provide manufacturing and prototyping equipment and software and we make it available to qualifying area businesses in order to support manufacturing growth in the mid-Hudson region of NYS.


Our goal?

Job creation.

Using grant money, we purchase manufacturing equipment and prototyping software so cash-strapped businesses don’t have to.

Generally, the equipment is useful for:

  • Prototyping
  • Characterization/Testing
  • Inspection
  • Backfilling during equipment repair/maintenance

We are funded primarily by NYS ESD and NYS DOL (
