New London Business & Technology Center

The New London Business and Technology Center is a 500 wooded acre development that combines modern day technology with environmentally friendly sites and walking trails. Although the center’s focus is technology, a wide variety of business uses are welcome. The park is home to the Center for Advanced Engineering and Research (CAER) that opened its doors in 2011 to create a knowledge-based R&D hub for the region. Options for locating in the New London Business and Technology Center include land lease or outright purchase of lots. Special tax incentives are available for qualifying technology companies.
