ROCHESTER, N.Y. (WHEC)— New York Gov.Kathy Hochul Tuesday announced more than 100 jobs will come along to the Rochester area as a Candian technology company plans to set up shop.

The company is pledging to bring in up to 102 new jobs, with a focus on being fully operational by early 2026.
Delta-X is known for designing, engineering, and manufacturing high-performance, fully automated solutions for industrial and digital automation, printing, security, and encryption platforms.
