Democrat & Chronicle: High-tech center in Canandaigua receives designation that could lead to jobs
Democrat & Chronicle
Canandaigua’s high-tech, nanotechnology manufacturing center has gained a critical international designation that will allow it to compete for huge U.S. military contracts and other high-level commercial work.
The Smart System Technology and Commercialization Center of Excellence in Canandaigua, which is the former Infotonics Center, has successfully completed the International Organization for Standardization’s 9001:2008 registration process.
The ISO designation by the Geneva, Switzerland-based agency, STC Center executive director Paul Tolley said Thursday, is essential when competing for major high-tech jobs in the center’s core enterprise of developing and manufacturing micro-electricalmechanical systems.
