Millennials in Manufacturing Awards

Millennials in Manufacturing

Celebrating Young Professionals Who are Driving Innovation in New York's Manufacturing Industry.
Class of 2019

As the rapid pace of technological change continues to accelerate, the manufacturing industry needs more young leaders who are prepared to constantly adapt and implement innovative solutions to drive growth. In 2019, FuzeHub, the statewide New York Manufacturing Extension Partnership center, launched the Millennials in Manufacturing Awards to celebrate young professionals who are doing their part to strengthen New York State's manufacturing industry. By recognizing their achievements, we hope to encourage more people to pursue careers in manufacturing.

New York State manufacturing companies with under 500 employees were invited to nominate an employee between the ages of 25 and 39 holding a position as an engineer, technician or another position directly related to manufacturing operations. FuzeHub is pleased to share this publication with you to introduce the winners of the inaugural Millennials in Manufacturing Awards.
