Collaborative Advanced Manufacturing Initiative Supports Innovations in Central New York
The Advanced Manufacturing for Thermal and Environmental Controls (AM-TEC) initiative designed to accelerate growth of the industry cluster that manufactures thermal and environmental control (TEC) systems in Central New York. The AM-TEC project—which targets small, medium, and large manufactures and suppliers of TEC equipment—provides targeted support for firms to reduce their costs and increase revenues through the creation and maintenance of a capable workforce and the development of new products through innovation, research, workforce, and business development services.
AMTEC is led SyracuseCoE in close partnership with CenterState CEO, the Manufacturers Association of Central New York (MACNY), NYSTAR, Central New York Technology Development Organization (TDO), Onondaga Community College Small Business Development Center, SUNY College of Environmental Science and Forestry, and Syracuse University.
The AM-TEC project is a collaborative initiative designed to strengthen the cluster of Central New York manufacturers of systems that heat and cool buildings, refrigerate produce, control manufacturing processes, and enable a variety of other applications. To drive regional cluster growth, AM-TEC will provided targeted support for innovation and commercialization acceleration, export acceleration, advanced manufacturing training opportunities, research and development collaborations with area universities and faculty, workforce development and training, entrepreneurial assistance and support and cluster networking opportunities.
The AMTEC initiative is supported by nearly $1.9 million in federal funding awarded competitively through the 2012 Advanced Manufacturing Jobs and Innovation Accelerator Challenge, and an additional $1.3 million in matching funds provided by the New York State Energy Research and Development Authority (NYSERDA), Empire State Development, CenterState CEO and MACNY.
