EWI is growing its team at Buffalo Manufacturing Works with the addition of Daniel Kmiotek. Kmiotek will support the organization’s materials & testing technology focus area as a metrology technician. Buffalo Manufacturing Works is committed to helping manufacturers grow and compete with access to the world’s best engineers, technicians and scientists.
Kmiotek comes to the team with more than 20 years of experience in materials engineering and previously worked at Praxair and Delphi Corp. His background includes a variety of metallographic sample preparation methods and the operation of inspection instrumentation and techniques such as scanning electron microscopy, energy dispersive spectroscopy, and optical microscopy.
“As EWI and Buffalo Manufacturing Works continue to build our technical capabilities, it’s critical that we have the right people on our team to work with the leading edge equipment we are adding to our facility,” said Michael Ulbrich, President of Buffalo Manufacturing Works. “The addition of Daniel to our team will help us take our materials and testing technology focus area to the next level by helping manufacturers develop, test and implement advanced manufacturing technologies.”
Since opening in April 2015, Buffalo Manufacturing Works has nearly doubled its full time staff to 15 people. In its first year of operation, Buffalo Manufacturing Works has engaged with more than 50 companies, started 35 projects and has had more than 2,000 visitors. It is a project of Governor Andrew M. Cuomo’s Buffalo Billion initiative.
