New York State Focuses on Advanced Manufacturing

New York State Governor Andrew M. Cuomo has committed historic funding to Western New York to fund initiatives in strategic areas showing strong growth potential such as Advanced Manufacturing. The results of these initiative include:

  • Buffalo High-Tech Manufacturing Innovation Hub at RiverBend
    The 1.2 million square foot SolarCity GigaFactory will be located at the Buffalo High-Tech Manufacturing Innovation Hub at RiverBend, a new START-UP NY site owned by the State University of New York’s Polytechnic Institute.  It is sited on approximately 88 acres in South Buffalo that was once home to a Republic Steel manufacturing facility.
  • Buffalo Manufacturing Works
    Buffalo Manufacturing Works is a new, state-of-the-art center aimed at spurring transformative growth in the high-tech manufacturing sector, providing applied R&D services in the areas of flexible machining and finishing, advanced materials and testing, additive manufacturing and advanced fabrication.

    STAMP, a shovel-ready 1,250 acres mega site, a part of New York’s High Tech Corridor, is designed to attract large companies including semiconductor, display/ imaging, photovoltaics, optics/ photonics, and bio-manufacturing firms. $33 million of the Buffalo Billion has been committed to develop necessary infrastructure at the site.
  • Workforce Development / Training Center at Northland
    Buffalo's East Side will soon be the home of a new industrial complex and next generation Workforce Development Center, as the next phase of Governor Andrew Cuomo's Buffalo Billion initiative takes shape. Serving as the center point of the Northland Corridor Redevelopment Project, the Workforce Development Center will be focused on helping local residents develop skills in manufacturing, electrical and solar energy.
