Buffalo Manufacturing Works began as part of New York State Governor Andrew M. Cuomo’s Buffalo Billion Investment Development Plan. The groundbreaking Buffalo Billion initiative provided Buffalo Manufacturing Works with an investment of $45 million toward facility, equipment and staff.

EWI elected as operating partner

In January, 2014, EWI was selected as the operating partner for Buffalo Manufacturing Works given their proven success in helping manufacturers grow and promoting economic development. EWI is North America’s leading engineering and technology organization dedicated to advanced materials joining and allied manufacturing technologies.


Our goal is to serve the needs of the Buffalo Niagara manufacturing community – which is why EWI has met with more than 150 local manufacturers and business officials to gather input and develop a shared vision for Buffalo Manufacturing Works. A key component of our operating model is the Buffalo Manufacturing Works Founders Council, an active group of local manufacturing companies that represent industry, advise on our development and are committed to long-term sustainability and impact.

Inspired by success

Buffalo Manufacturing Works is inspired by EWI’s success over the past 30 years in delivering impactful solutions to innovation driven manufacturers in a sustainable fashion. This success coupled with our unique, collaborative model shapes our vision for the future.
