the power of small NICKEL T CITY REVIVAL Legendary Buffalo Manufacturer Leads here’s a dream in New York to turn Buffalo into a 21st-century manufacturing powerhouse. In 2015, Empire State Development helped launch Buffalo Billion to promote, among other things, advanced manufacturing, health and life sciences in western New York, creating an estimated 12,000 new jobs. But the promise of modern manufacturing isn’t just the new additions to Buffalo’s business scene; it’s also companies that have innovated for generations, showing manufacturing’s staying power and bright tomorrow. At the forefront of innovation, bridging Buffalo’s manufacturing future and proud-making past, is Tapecon Inc. , in business for 97 years. The firm solves application challenges for medical, industrial and electronic device manufacturers through revolutionary printing and custom materials converting technologies.
