  • We’ve been doing business in Marlborough for a long time now and we found a very pro-business environment that allows us speed to market.

    Bob Merchant, COO, Ken’s Foods

  • The City of Marlborough partnered with SanDisk and was instrumental in facilitating our internal time line for occupancy of the site. With easy access to hotels, shopping, and restaurants, Marlborough has provided an excellent ecosystem for SanDisk. The close proximity to Boston/Cambridge/Worcester and all points north and south via I-495, I-290 and I-90 allow access to key customers, such as EMC, as well as some of the state’s top universities and engineering institutions such as MIT, Harvard, BU, BC, Northeastern and WPI. From this pool, we have been able to grow the site from a base of 80 in 2014 to over 130 technical professionals.

    James Goldsberry, VP Engineering, SanDisk

  • I will say that in many parts of the Commonwealth, what’s happening here in Marlborough doesn’t exist yet. So, you’re in a very special and good place. When you graduate with the right skills, whether it’s from this high school and you go directly into employment or you go on to college, you are part of a workforce that will continue to allow Massachusetts to hold the title of the most innovative state.

    Karyn Polito, Massachusetts Lt. Gov. (Speaking at MHS)

  • Marlborough is a market that companies are looking at. Marlborough is on the radar screen. Proximity to Boston, proximity to the shoreline is key. The folks here do have a good reputation.

    John Boyd, Principal, The Boyd Company

  • The City of Marlborough has clearly become a key biotechnology hub in the Commonwealth of Massachusetts. We’re seeing some great life sciences and biotechnology companies making Marlborough their home. Marlborough’s rating as a Platinum-level BioReady Community, means the city has done the work necessary to attract and host life sciences. We look forward to working with the Marlborough Economic Development Corporation to further develop this cluster of businesses just west of Boston.

    Robert Coughlin, President & CEO, MassBio

  • Only 45 minutes from downtown Boston, the Marlborough Hills development area is a center of activity and economic growth. As major corporations continue to move into Marlborough, we recognized a need for a new, updated hotel to accommodate the area’s growing community. We are excited by the activity within the immediately adjacent office park and could not be more pleased to make this venture a reality.

    Bob Micklash, President of Lodging and Residential CSM Lodging (Hilton Garden Inn Marlborough)

  • Marlborough’s involvement, concern and interaction with local businesses should be a model for other municipal governments. Our company has been in Marlborough for 50 years, and though we have had opportunities to relocate, we repeatedly chose not to. Marlborough has the infrastructure we require, the labor pool and a “business friendly” Mayor’s office.

    Tony Muraco, President and CEO, Universal Window and Door

  • The leadership in Marlborough understood business realities of the private sector and embraced the creative concepts needed to revitalize a parcel that, otherwise, had remained underutilized for too long.

    Joe Zink, President and CEO, Atlantic Management

  • I have found Marlborough to be a place where the local government understands the complicated world I work within. Having a supportive local community can only help me succeed, and Marlborough has a wonderful business vibe community.

    Dino Farina, CEO, Proveris Scientific

  • You really get the message that Marlborough wants to make your transaction happen in the city from the first interaction through the delivery phase. The results speak for themselves.

    Kevin Malloy, Principal, Avison Young

  • I have found Marlborough to be a great business address where I can tap the talent pool from Boston, Cambridge and nationally for our target skill sets. I highly recommend it.

    Tom Clay, CEO, Xtalic

  • The City of Marlborough was a great choice for GE Life Sciences. Centrally located, it offers easy access to a very talented pool of human capital, world-class academic and medical institutions, and multiple industrial sectors such as biotech, pharmaceuticals, bioinformatics, diagnostics and medical devices.

    Anthony Kotarski, Executive, Properties, GE Healthcare Life Sciences
