Students in programs at the Genesee Valley BOCES Batavia Career and Technical Education Center, Northlands Workforce Training Center, Monroe Community College's Applied Technologies Center and our region's community colleges, universities, and specialized training programs are ready to support the growth of 343 high-wage careers in Edwards' Phase I project.
To share how these relationships are growing, Edwards Vice President of Global Business Development Scott Balaguer and Vice President of People and Culture Tom Lievens joined WBTA's "Main and Center" on January 27, 2023. Listen to the full program below.

Manufacturing Building.pngProject Overview

In November 2022, Edwards announced the selection of the STAMP Mega-site for their $319 million Factory of the Future.
At STAMP,  Edwards plans to employ 600 high-skill professionals in the state-of-the-art semiconductor dry pump manufacturing facility. Phase I of the project will invest $209 million to build facilities supporting 343 high-wage careers.
Semiconductor dry pumps are critical equipment as Genesee County and New York's semiconductor corridor ramp up domestic chip manufacturing, ensuring that new chips fabs launch successfully and drastically reducing the carbon-usage to supply existing fabs.
