Every time you flip on your windshield wipers or turn up your air conditioner, we’re guessing that Buffalo, NY, isn’t the first thing that comes to mind. But you have Buffalo to thank for both inventions. There is a new video making the rounds on social media that highlights amazing innovations and innovators that Buffalo can lay claim to. Featured inventions include the grain elevator, the first system of fire hydrants, the Ball jar, Kittinger furniture, the first hydroelectric power plant, the windshield wiper, the air conditioner and the list goes on and on. It’s worth a watch!

With a rich history in innovation and deep manufacturing roots, it’s pretty exciting to think what the next chapter of this video will look like in 5 years, 10 years and even 50 years. What else will be born in Buffalo? At Buffalo Manufacturing Works, our goal is to help manufacturers impact our region’s future success and prosperity by adding to that video. We can help leverage cutting-edge technologies, creative strategies, and best practices that will have a ripple effect on businesses and consumers throughout the region.

That video couldn’t squeeze in all of Buffalo’s inventive breakthroughs. You can read about more outstanding “Made in WNY” products from our partner Insyte Consulting including the Crescent Wrench and the artificial Sponge. We’ll be sure to let you know when we come across another one!
