The Micron Technology project will undoubtedly be transformative for the Central New York Community, New York and beyond. As a leader in manufacturing and tech workforce development, MACNY knows that our region is filled with a skilled and diverse workforce. We look forward to working with Micron and the entire manufacturing community to help fill the talent pipeline needed for the existing, and future, manufacturing industries to thrive across our region and state.
Not only will the project create thousands of advanced manufacturing jobs and other positions, but it will elevate New York’s profile as a high-tech manufacturing hub while strengthening our economic and national security. The White Pine Commerce Park in Clay is ideally positioned because of its shovel-ready infrastructure and availability of abundant energy and water. Central and Upstate New York have a great manufacturing history which is one of the many reasons this investment is being made here.
MACNY applauds U.S. Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer, Governor Kathy Hochul, and Onondaga County Executive Ryan McMahon for their tireless and collective efforts to make this project a reality. As a part of the many people who helped make this investment a reality, the MACNY Team is excited, ready, and committed to collaborate with our community partners and to be part of this historic endeavor. This investment over the decades ahead will be groundbreaking for the Central New York region we are proud to call home.
