Melville, New York, United States

Economy | Media

🇺🇸 Melville is an affluent hamlet and place (CDP) in the Town of Huntington in Suffolk County on Long Island, New York, in the United States. Melville lies directly east of the boundary with Nassau County. The Long Island Expressway (LIE) and Northern State Parkway, two of Long Island's busiest highways and major points of entry in and out of New York City, pass through Melville. Melville is located immediately off Exit 49 of the LIE. New York State Route 110 runs through the centre of Melville.

Economy Melville and Happauge are the two primary business centres of Suffolk County, which is home to almost one and a half million people. Melville still is home to many U.S. headquarters of a number of national and international corporations, including Canon USA, ChyronHego Corporation, Leviton, MSC Industrial Direct, Nikon USA, the medical and dental supply distributor Henry Schein, Bouchard Transportation, and Verint Systems. In addition, significant operations of Manhattan-based Estée Lauder are conducted there. Melville was also the host of operations for many Fortune 500 companies, where headquarters and many other corporate and industrial centres were once found on or near Route 110, which runs north to south through Huntington, Melville, Farmingdale, North Amityville, and Amityville. In early 2013, Canon Inc. moved into its new regional headquarters for North and South America in Melville—a $500-million 668,296-square-foot (62,086.7 m²) glass structure near Exit 49 of the Long Island Expressway on the 52-acre (210,000 m²) site of a former pumpkin farm. About 1,500 workers were expected to move from Canon's Lake Success offices. The company chose Melville over other tri-state area locations because the employees "didn't want to leave the area".

Firms that have disappeared, that were once headquartered here are OSI Pharmaceuticals, which was bought by Astellas Pharma of Japan, Allion Healthcare, which was acquired by a private equity firm, Hain Celestial, which moved to Lake Success in Nassau County, Arrow Electronics relocated their headquarters to Englewood, Colorado in 2011 and the global staffing giant, Adecco, which in 2014 moved their (US headquarters) to Jacksonville, Florida. Other firms to leave are First Data Corp., Olympus America Inc., the U.S. subsidiary of Olympus Corporation, who moved in 2006 to Center Valley, Pa., and the pizza chain, Sbarro, that went into bankruptcy and reemerged in 2014, relocating to Columbus, Ohio. Around 2002 Swiss International Air Lines's North American headquarters moved from Melville to Uniondale in the town of Hempstead. The facility, the former Swissair North American headquarter site, was completed in 1995. Swissair intended to own, instead of lease, its headquarters site. It enlisted architect Richard Meier to design the Melville facility. The building is now owned by Damianos Realty Group, LLC, a Long Island-based real estate company. Melville was also the global headquarters of Gentiva Health Services from its 1999 founding until its 2006 relocation to Atlanta.

Media The Long Island newspaper Newsday is published in Melville. The independent television station WLNY-TV operates a studio in Melville where it had been based before being purchased by CBS and moved to the network's Manhattan facility.
