The new Photonics Institute will look at technological advances in light. It is expected to create thousands of jobs and is also being called the biggest investment in Rochester in 80 years.
The event will mark the first announcement of a manufacturing hub following the passage of the federal Revitalizing American Manufacturing Initiative. The legislation will bring over $110 million in federal grant money to the region to develop the advanced manufacturing field of photonics, according to U.S. Rep. Tom Reed, R-Corning.
The announcement is scheduled to take place at 11 a.m. at Ponds Business Park,115 Canal Landing Blvd., Greece.
