Welcome to Hanover Township! The Economic Development Advisory Committee and the Township Committee are very excited for this opportunity to introduce you to the many benefits of working, living, and doing business in our thriving community, located in the heart of prosperous Morris County.
Comprised of two sections, Whippany and Cedar Knolls , Hanover Township is located less than an hour from Manhattan, at the “crossroads” of Morris County. Hanover Township’s outstanding transportation infrastructure offers convenient access to many intersecting major highways and is home to the Morristown Airport, one of New Jersey’s largest corporate airports.
Our well-managed, debt free community boasts one of the lowest tax rates in Morris County (currently ranked 4th out of 39 municipalities) with one of the highest levels of municipal services. Our strong fiscal management along with a highly educated, professional labor pool, can position your business to compete successfully in one of the world’s largest markets.
Hanover Township is host to a vibrant business community, including Bayer HealthCare, whose 650,000 square foot U.S. headquarters is now fully operational, and the Red Bulls Training Facility. In 2014, we welcomed ShopRite, a world-class supermarket, and UniFirst Corporation. This year, we look forward to adding Wegmans, a premier supermarket, and a Fortune 50 insurance company, which will be basing its flagship offices right here in Hanover Township. These businesses will join such neighbors as Mondelēz, Tiffany & Company, Suburban Propane, Novartis and CAE, in addition to many successful small and midsize businesses. Our major brand hotels, quality restaurants, and recreational opportunities offer great amenities, not only for business travelers, but also for hosting corporate conferences and other events.
Hanover Township is ready and eager to help your business find the ideal location within our “green” community, with its strong housing market, “blue ribbon” schools, modern municipal library, as well as the Morris County Library, and dynamic recreation department, which maintains six parks and features a wide range of sports activities for all age groups. The Township is also moving forward with a “connectivity” plan that will leverage our expansive green spaces to encourage wellness and further enhance our community.
Let our state-recognized Economic Development Advisory Committee guide you to the optimal site for your company, and help you navigate the approval processes in the most efficient and timely manner. Hanover Township is open for business -- your business.
