Albany, N.Y. (Manufacturing.net) — New York Governor Cuomo last weekend announced the FuzeHub, which aims to connect small- and medium-sized manufacturers (SMEs) with state resources, such as the New York Manufacturing Extension Partnership (MEP) program, economic development agencies and more.
Located at www.fuzehub.com, the program helps companies connect, at all hours of the day, to a team of technical and manufacturing professionals, who will respond within 48 hours. Cuomo says these experts will work with companies via live, one-on-one discussions to provide connections to the specific set of experts needed to solve a given problem.
Governor Cuomo said in a statement: “The FuzeHub initiative builds on the State’s work to create a business environment that allows manufacturers to thrive in New York. FuzeHub brings together all of our leading technology resources under one umbrella allowing companies to quickly and easily access critical expertise and resources. Manufacturers are the economic backbone of many communities in New York, and when they do well, all New Yorkers reap the benefits. This initiative will stimulate innovation, spur job creation and grow companies across the state.”
The FuzeHub Initiative also offers half-day workshops across New York to match SMEs with the state’s resources. More than 350 companies have attended the 18 Solutions Forums to date.
