Welcome to Hanover Township in the heart of prosperous Morris County
The Hanover Township Committee and the Economic Development Advisory Committee welcomes you, and thanks you for this opportunity to share the many benefits of working, living, learning and playing in the Township of Hanover.
Hanover Township, comprised of the communities of Whippany and Cedar Knolls is located minutes from Manhattan, at the “crossroads” of Morris County. The township is home to one of New Jersey’s largest corporate airports (Morristown Municipal Airport or “MMU”), and its outstanding transportation infrastructure includes access to many intersecting major highways and convenient passenger and freight rail service.
This well managed, debt free community boasts one of the lowest tax rates in the County (currently ranked 4th out of 39 municipalities). Our favorable fiscal environment along with a highly educated, professional labor pool, will allow 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 s.f., U.S. headquarters is now fully operational. Recent and future developments will bring a national home improvement retailer and two premier supermarkets. These businesses will join such neighbors as Mondelez, Tiffany & Company, Suburban Propane, Novartis and CAE, in addition to many successful small and midsize businesses. The Township also offers great amenities for business travel and entertainment, including major brand hotels and a variety of quality restaurants.
Hanover Township is ready and eager to help you locate your business within our “green” community, with its thriving housing market, “blue ribbon” schools, modern municipal library and dynamic recreation department, which maintains six parks and hosts a wide range of sports activities for all age groups. The Township is also implementing a “connectivity” plan that will leverage our expansive green spaces to encourage wellness and enhance our neighborhoods.
