With strong roots in the City of Poughkeepsie, bettering the community for all is at the core of each project Baxter takes on. We believe in revitalizing the City of Poughkeepsie not only through our development projects, but by giving back to our local community. Baxter partners with many local organizations to offer our resources and support for the better.
It’s true! Because it’s personal, every job we take on has meaning. Each location we build or develop becomes an unforgettable part of our personal history as a company, but also for our employees and hard-working teams, their families, our community and beyond. And that’s just us.
Here at Baxter, we have a proud history of giving back to the places where we live, work, and play. These efforts go far beyond construction and contracts. This is the mettle we are truly made of, and it’s a huge part of our culture here at Baxter. Our respect for the past and commitment to the future of our neighborhoods and city streets is as rich as the history of the Hudson Valley.
