The Islip Industrial Development Agency has attracted two businesses to set up shop in town.

Queens-based businesses Coline Cabinetry and the Home Tile Center of NY are coming to Islip after the town offered sales tax exemptions and property tax savings.

"Economic development is a priority of this administration, and the Islip IDA has done an incredible job of attracting businesses and creating jobs," Town Supervisor Angie Carpenter said in a news release.

Coline Cabinetry is buying a 51,000-square-foot facility in Hauppauge to supplement its existing Flushing facility, and plans to invest $5.96 million in the new building. The IDA offered sales tax exemptions of $69,200 and property tax savings of $241,340 over 10 years, and the company will retain nine jobs and create 11 more.

The Home Tile Center of NY is relocating to a 28,000-square-foot location in Islandia. The company plans to invest $1.725 million into this new facility after the IDA offered $223,057 in property tax savings over 10 years. The company is retaining six jobs, and creating 14 more jobs.

"The IDA is here to support businesses of all sizes," Carpenter said in the release.
