Manufacturers Council tours the “Wrinkled Tin Factory”

One of the main reasons our Manufacturers Council presents facility tours is to provide Partnership members with the opportunity to share best practices in their industry.

We highlight exemplary facilities from around the region with the hopes of creating tangible value and insights that member companies can apply to their businesses, such as information on policies, a new machining process or new business connection.

Turning Rust to Blue

On September 29, the Buffalo Niagara Partnership, Buffalo Niagara Riverkeeper, the Community Foundation of Greater Buffalo and the WNY Sustainable Business Roundtable, hosted “Turning Rust to Blue: The Great Lakes New Economy,” a conversation about the role of water as not only our region’s defining asset but also as an economic development driver and critical component of business competitiveness in the 21st century.

Given our status as a founding member of the Great Lakes Metro Chambers Coalition, maximizing the economic potential of our Great Lakes region while preserving and enhancing the quality of our Great Lakes are two of our top priorities at the Partnership.
