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 selected as operating partner

In January, 2014, EWI was selected as the operating partner for Buffalo Manufacturing Works given its proven success in helping manufacturers grow and promoting economic development. EWI provides comprehensive engineering services to help companies in all industries identify, develop, and implement the best technology options for their specific applications.


Our goal is to serve the needs of the Buffalo Niagara manufacturing community – which is why EWI initially met with more than 250 local manufacturers and business officials to develop the 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.
