Tapecon connects with the Partnership on workforce development opportunities.
Tapecon has come a long way since its founding in 1919 in Buffalo when founder, Albert Davis, invented his mechanical sign-changing machine. Today’s Tapecon is a high tech innovator in contract manufacturing, serving OEM customers worldwide in the industrial, electronic and medical device markets, to name a few.
With nearly 100 employees, Tapecon utilizes a variety of different printing techniques to create graphics and functional parts. Producing technical printing and converting solutions takes a team effort from skilled employees at Tapecon. That’s why access to a qualified workforce in Buffalo Niagara is more important than ever.
Tapecon has been a member of the Buffalo Niagara Partnership for over 60 years, and company president Steven Davis recently took on the position of chair of the Partnership’s Manufacturers Council. The Council has made workforce development in the region its top priority, working to fill the skills gap that exists in area manufacturing and to assure qualified workers for the future. This priority aligns with Tapecon’s goals.
“Establishment of the Manufacturers Council is testament to the commitment of the Partnership to the manufacturing sector and its workforce in Buffalo Niagara,” says Davis. “We have created a much more specific and actionable agenda on priorities that matter most to manufacturers, with workforce development at the top of the list.”
Steve Davis points out that other organizations are equally committed to workforce development in the region. He sees the Partnership as an important connector for area manufacturers.
