ALFRED, NY — Lt. Gov. Kathy Hochul was the state’s messenger of good news today (Friday, Nov. 13) as she brought word from Gov. Andrew Cuomo of a $7.75 million grant to Alfred University (AU) for the construction of a new Center for Advanced Ceramic Manufacturing and Education at the New York State College of Ceramics. The award is supported by the fourth round of the governor’s NYSUNY (State University of New York) 2020 Challenge Grant Program.
“Ceramics are the foundation to the cutting edge technology that allows us to compete in the global market,” said Hochul. “We’re counting on you to take your place among the industry leaders, which is why we’re here to make this announcement. We are proud to make this investment.
In collaboration with partners that span industry, state agencies, and other academic institutions, the Center’s primary mission will be to get products to market as quickly and as efficiently as possible. Leveraging faculty expertise in materials’ design, processing and characterization, the Center will be well poised to provide a full range of services to new and established companies.
The Center will work hand-in-glove with the University’s Center for Advanced Ceramic Technology to expand services and grow its current client base, which now includes General Electric, Corning Incorporated, Lockheed Martin, TAM, World Kitchen, EnrG, Ceralink, Freeform Fiber, and Boston Valley Terra Cotta – to name just a few.
