Why should a company locate to the Hershey Center for Applied Research (HCAR)?

HCAR is a one-of-kind research park in Central Pennsylvania. In Central Pennsylvania there is such a wealth of technology and research expertise and HCAR is a great gateway to develop and nurture these undiscovered resources.

What do you enjoy most about Hershey, PA?

Hershey is a small, diverse community. We have the beauty of two worlds at our fingertips, we're surrounded by beautiful fields and mountains, yet we're close to Harrisburg and other vibrant cities. Also the cultural activities and the arts in Hershey are truly wonderful.

How is HCAR accelerating research and development?

HCAR provides state-of-the-art facilities that enable companies to settle into a research-centric community and grow.
