Several New York State economic development agencies have joined forces with the Buffalo Niagara Enterprise under the marketing umbrella ‘NY Loves Nanotech’. The collaboration's aim was to gain support for the region's semiconductor industry during a global nanotech conference in San Francisco.

The annual SEMICON West conference brings together business representatives and professionals from around the world to promote business opportunities in the nanotechnology industry.

Director of Investor and Public Relations for BNE, Paul Pfeiffer, says New York State was able to showcase their success in the semiconductor industry, through the products of their client Globalfoundries, based in Rochester.

The quiet farming community of Alabama, N.Y. sits amongst acres of farm and wetland. It’s also the site chosen for a new Science Technology and Manufacturing Park or STAMP.

The high-tech park has also been the subject of some public scrutiny, as Genesee County rates highly amongst top agricultural producers in the state. The project is also an example of when the values of agricultural communities are starting to rub up against an upstate development agenda focused around high-tech manufacturing.
