Sen. Charles Schumer has publicly committed to working with the U.S. Economic Development Administration to develop financial support for conversion of the remaining building of the former Trico Products windshield-wiper plant in downtown Buffalo into the second phase of the Buffalo Niagara Medical Campus Innovation Center.
The BNMC’s Thomas Beecher Jr. Innovation Center is a supporting member of our association. The initially renovated wing of Trico offers office and laboratory incubator suites on a month-to-month basis, and the remainder of the building houses life-science companies on short-term, flexible leases. The Innovation Center is the hub of commercial presence at the BNMC.
