Town Square







A Message from the Supervisor

“Welcome to Islip, the 3rd largest town in New York State, but with an endearing small town feel. We are so proud of our town…our beaches, golf courses, marinas, parks, housing opportunities for all, businesses, industrial parks, healthcare and educational institutions including our own Islip MacArthur Airport that provides many job opportunities. I sincerely hope you find this website helpful.” Angie


Conveniently located adjacent to Long Island Mac Arthur Airport and near major rail and roadways, the Town of Islip Foreign Trade Zone Authority is Long Island’s only industrial park with a foreign trade zone designation. With over 435,000 square feet of prime warehouse and office space, the Town of Islip Foreign Trade Zone Authority offers an ideal environment for companies engaged in global trade. Companies doing business out of an FTZ have the unique opportunity to utilize foreign trade zone benefits to save significantly on their imports. Tenants in our FTZ may delay payment of customs duty and excise taxes until the actual time of transfer from the Zone into the United States. This duty and excise tax may be eliminated altogether for goods that are re-exported, or sent from the zone to locations outside the United States.
