Company hosts Gov. Cuomo, state agency investing in Valor Glass job creation
New York’s governor said one thing clearly creates jobs and stimulates the economy: companies that know how to evolve in order to capture new opportunity.
“There is no better model for that than Corning,” Andrew Cuomo told a packed hall of employees, media, and visiting officials gathered at Sullivan Park Wednesday for a special announcement.
Trying to recreate what worked in the past won’t solve today’s economic woes, he said – in upstate New York or across the nation.
“It’s not about yesterday. It’s about tomorrow,” Cuomo said. “And there is no better example of creating tomorrow’s economy and tomorrow’s jobs – and a better quality of life for people with the products you make – than Corning.”
The governor was visiting to announce an investment in Corning Valor™ Glass that will create 185 new jobs and support more than 380 jobs overall in the Southern Tier of New York. The new jobs will be located at the Corning Innovation Support Center (CISC) in Big Flats and at Sullivan Park.
