Over 250 attendees had a chance to view exhibits by CNY manufacturers when MiiCNY (Making it in Central New York) partnered with SME (Society for Manufacturing Engineers) to celebrate Central New York’s robust manufacturing tradition. The former Dietz Lantern Factory, home of Jacobsen Rugs, was the impressive backdrop to a spirited evening of professional networking along with local food, drink and music. Darco was proud to support the event and encourages everyone to visit MiiCNY’s Facebook page.
The CNY Story
The region lost many production jobs when large manufacturers left the area but we should not be defined by these losses. In CNY we have a remarkably diverse set of skills to offer local and global customers. If they dream it, we can make it here. We have a thriving community of small and mid-size manufacturers, including companies with a long-standing history in the region and those that are making their way here. Many manufacturers have held on, made it, and are tooled up for the next industrial revolution. Combine this with an incomparable quality of life and we believe that the region’s best days are ahead of it.
Let’s be defined by our perseverance and ability to thrive. And let’s talk about how we are making great products—and a good life—in Central New York.
