Herkimer County, New York, is an epicenter of economic activity. Within 300 miles of this Mohawk Valley location, you’ll find 25% of the total population of the United States and Canada – and tremendous manufacturing wealth. For John Piseck, Executive Director of the Herkimer Industrial Development Agency (HCIDA), regional economic development is part of a large and fruitful landscape.
In a podcast with New York State Manufacturing Now, Piseck recalls the origins of an annual Mohawk Valley event centered around the region’s agricultural ecosystem. As “How the Mohawk Valley Feeds Innovation” approaches, you’ll learn how FuzeHub’s original Manufacturing Expo began and hear about some of the successes that NYS companies have had at Herkimer College, our traditional venue.
This year’s event is virtual because of the pandemic, but that’s an opportunity for manufacturers from across the state to discover Herkimer, the place where NYS manufacturers make connections in June.
