Buffalo manufacturer's expansion gets tax support from state

Empire State Development will provide Eastman Machine Company with up to $210,000 in tax credits in exchange for creating jobs

A Buffalo manufacturer is expanding, and it will get state tax credits to help pay for it.

Empire State Development announced Monday that it will give Eastman Machine Company up to $210,000 in tax credits in exchange for creating jobs.

Eastman, a cutting and material machine manufacturer, is located on Washington Street and is planning to add 7,400 square feet by the end of this year for loading docks, materials storage, and automated assembly.

“Western New York is home to innovative manufacturing companies that have strategically diversified in order to grow,” said Empire State Development Acting Commissioner and President & CEO-Designate Eric Gertler in a written statement. “Eastman Machine is a great example of a global business with Buffalo roots. Five generations of this family-owned business have recognized Western New York as an attractive place to work and live, and their continued investment will help move the region’s economy forward.”

That expansion also recently received $170,000 award from the New York Power Authority.
