The BNE team recently got an guided tour on all of the latest developments in Genesee County, courtesy of our partners at the Genesee County Economic Development Center (GCEDC). During the course of the day, we toured five of the GCEDC’s commerce parks including the emerging “mega-site” in Alabama, NY, known as the Science Technology Advanced Manufacturing Park or STAMP (see http://www.gcedc.com/index.php/wny/ for full details).The unique infrastructure assets at this site, combined with its central geographic location, represents a rare opportunity for the Buffalo and Rochester metro areas: leveraging our collective academic and technical expertise in effort to bring the semiconductor industry to western New York. This is a project worth monitoring, as this massive endeavor is really picking up momentum.

In terms of current success, we were also afforded a tour of the new Quaker Muller yogurt factory, located inside the Genesee Valley Agri-Business Park. It was heartening to witness the leading-edge production process and to learn and interact with the new employees that Quaker Muller has added this summer. For those interested in the remaining land sites at the Ag Park, simply follow this link: http://www.gcedc.com/index.php/site-selectio/genesee-valley-agri-business-park/

Throughout the course of the day, we also visited the GCEDC’s available development sites in the towns of Pembroke, Batavia, and Bergen. We also toured the new flex office/industrial space at the Masse Place Gateway, right inside the Batavia’s rapidly evolving downtown. For the uninitiated, the City of Batavia offers a tremendous mix of unique shops and restaurants. Well worth a trip from the surrounding counties of western NY, and that’s not even counting the other attractions in Pembroke and LeRoy, and Darien!
