Message From Thomas A. DeGise


Hudson County is booming — thanks to its strategic location, outstanding infrastructure and terrific business climate, second to none in the New York-Northern New Jersey market.

Connected to Manhattan by the Lincoln and Holland Tunnels, PATH trains and commuter water ferry services, Our county boasts a gleaming waterfront replete with office towers bearing the names of investment and banking giants like J.P. Morgan Chase, Goldman Sachs and Merrill Lynch & Co. We are home to a host of information-age firms formerly based in New York who found the a Hudson County address helped make them more competitive.

Hudson remains a transportation hub, boasting a modern light rail system that runs north-south throughout the County, and serviced by several major transportation arteries, including the New Jersey Turnpike, I-280, and U.S. Route 1 & 9. We are within short travel distance of Newark Liberty, Kennedy and LaGuardia International Airports. And we also continue to build on our proud history in the shipping industry with improved deep-water ports that will soon be ready to handle the super-freighter traffic of the 21rst Century.

I am enormously proud of the work of our County Economic Development Corporation. It plays a key role in encouraging business development here in Hudson County, lending over 3 million dollars in low cost financing to small businesses, administering the County’s award winning Brownfields programs and serving the business community with site location and relocation services.

I hope this website, and our outstanding HEDC staff will help convince you that Hudson County is the address for business success.
