In mid-October, Buffalo Manufacturing Works President Michael Ulbrich welcomed clients, suppliers and community partners to the new home of EWI New York in the Northland Corridor on the east side of Buffalo. The opening of the 50,000 square-foot facility signaled the realization of a vision come true – co-locating critical resources for regional manufacturers under one roof.
“This move is more than just the rehabilitation of a building,” said Ulbrich to guests who came for a special preview on October 10th. “It is about bringing new life to a neighborhood that was once a bustling epicenter of manufacturing in our city.” To set the stage, visitors were treated to short video highlighting the development of the Northland Central site and the impact it will have on the revitalization of local, regional, and national manufacturing.
New York Governor Andrew Cuomo officially announced the grand opening on October 29th. A ribbon-cutting ceremony was held the same day at Buffalo Manufacturing Works with city officials, representative from the state, members of the regional economic development community, and other partner organizations based in Northland Central facility.
EWI’s Buffalo Manufacturing Works focuses on additive manufacturing, automation, quality measurement and nondestructive evaluation, and is outfitted with top-of-the-line equipment to help manufacturers achieve their goals. In addition to offering a suite of advisory services, it serves as headquarters for the NY-based Shift program for small and medium-sized local manufacturers. The new facility, which double the size of the center’s original building, offers room to expand EWI’s technical capabilities and create more opportunities for our customers.
The bottom line is Buffalo Manufacturing Works is open for business! To tour our new facility and learn about our technical resources for manufacturers, contact Michelle Bulan at [email protected].
