“Life Medical Technologies chose the right place when they picked Dutchess County to locate their headquarters and operations,” said Senator Steve Saland (R,I,C, Poughkeepsie).  “The 250 planned jobs will fit particularly well with the skilled workforce in our area and will be an economic boon.  It just proves once again that Dutchess County has what it takes to draw many types of businesses and I congratulate all the partners of ‘Team Dutchess’ on their hard work in bringing this outstanding company here.”

"The combined efforts of New York State and Dutchess County to bring Life Medical Technologies to the Hudson Valley Research Park in East Fishkill is a major victory for our state, region and community,” said Assemblyman Marcus J. Molinaro (R,I,C, Red Hook).  “We have learned in Dutchess County how to compete for high quality jobs and with our skilled workforce, infrastructure and strong network of business leaders we have a perfect scenario for Life Medical Technology.  I applaud the work of "Team Dutchess," the Empire State Development Corporation, Hudson Valley Economic Development Corporation, and Greater Southern Dutchess Chamber for doing the heavy lifting necessary to bring LMT to Dutchess County.  May this be a sign of continued success and job growth in our region. With too many looking for quality work, this is great news and terrific success."
