Manufacturing Council Mission

Advocacy Initiatives
Programming Initiatives

"The Manufacturing Council helps me connect with the various resources available to manufacturers in Western New York. As a business owner, I don’t have the time to pursue each relevant advocacy item or call individual workforce organizations; the Partnership does that on behalf of local manufacturers. Our group is the “quarterback” of the local manufacturing landscape, and works to address the needs of the industry leaders here in Buffalo Niagara."

Steve Davis

President Tapecon Inc.

"As a Western New York native, I am proud to help grow the manufacturing industry through the Partnership. The Council allows me to work with my peers to impact the industries and people that make our region great. We are focused on continuing the tradition of strong manufacturing in Buffalo Niagara, and helping companies to grow and innovate for years to come."

Ron Ryszkiewicz
