For Businesses

Welcome to the City of Batavia, a great place to start or grow your business. Batavia is home to world headquarters for large manufacturing companies, a variety of small businesses and lays claim to having the very first “business incubator” established in the 1950’s.

Located within the breadbasket of the Upstate New York’s Finger Lakes Region, Batavia is the birthplace of Western New York and represents the crossroads of all points north, east, south and west making access to 55% of the North American population very easy. Batavia is a safe and affordable community with tree-lined streets in the center of it all.

We encourage investment in the City’s commercial and industrial areas, while enhancing the quality of life for all City residents and preserving the surrounding agricultural communities.
