Statement on Avogy and Photonica Coming to Rochester

Greater Rochester Chamber of Commerce President and CEO Bob Duffy issued the following statement in response to today’s announcement of photonics companies Avogy and Photonica coming to the Rochester and Finger Lakes region:

Duffy said, “Greater Rochester Chamber of Commerce was pleased to participate in today’s announcement of Avogy and Photonica coming to our region.  I cannot stress enough how big the news of a Silicon Valley company heading here from California and the creation of 1,400 jobs is for Rochester. We thank Governor Cuomo and our regional leaders who worked to bring the investments here to make this possible.  As Governor Cuomo said in touting the “Rochester Billion” today, it is now up to us to make the most of these investments headed to Rochester and the Finger Lakes region.  Our future is bright.”
