The Orange County Accelerator offers below-market rate, individual, co-working spaces referred to as SMARTT PODS to qualified startups.  (SMARTT stands for SUNY Manufacturing Alliance for Research and Technology Transfer, and PODS stands for Production on Demand Systems). Learn more about The Accelerator here.

 

Interested parties can inquire to see if they are a match for working with The Accelerator and eligible to be placed in a co-working space (see our form below).

 

The Accelerator also hosts on-site equipment funded by T-SEC. For instance, T-SEC funded the equipment for sewing and garment production (if interested in textile production, see our form below).

 

Their on-site Sewing Lab, located at their New Windsor campus, has digital pattern-making software known as Tukatech, and it is available to textile manufacturers, freelance pattern makers, independent fashion designers, etc. (if interested in scheduling time to work with the Tukatech CAD operator, see our form below).

 

A trained Tukatech operator is available to assist with pattern, grading, and marker-making needs.

Fashion Design and Production

The Accelerator’s Sewing Center is equipped with over a dozen sewing machines, making it an ideal production facility for textile work. In addition, The Accelerator’s Sewing Center also features a high-tech pattern-making solution, Tukatech. The Accelerator’s Tukatech is in demand by client garment and textile manufacturers who work with The Accelerator’s Tukatech-trained operator to create new styles and patterns.

 

Tukatech is known in the pattern design and garment and textile production world-wide community for its ease of use and also its intuitiveness. If you can come up with an idea, you can create it.

 

The advantage of Tukatech is what once took weeks to achieve in the pattern creation process now takes days. At the Accelerator, New Windsor, onsite seamstresses can take a sewing pattern sample and create from it the same day. This streamlines the design and production process immensely.

 

From design to manufacturing, The Accelerator in New Windsor is a one-stop shop for new and small business owners looking to make textile-based products.

Artisan Manufacturing

The Hudson Valley has seen a rise in the trend of artists, designers, and independent manufacturers creating and distributing original products. This trend is also known as a Makers Culture.

 

The Accelerator is committed to assisting this movement by providing small local businesses with any training needed to develop a product as well as the space and technology need to mass-produce it.
