Our clients' commitment to improving, to becoming more competitive, is paying dividends. Every dollar our manufacturing clients spend on improvement projects with Insyte returns more than $37 in benefits. More sales, more cost savings, and more profit are good for both our manufacturing clients and for our WNY economy.Whether you are a current client, a past client or have never worked with us before, we want to partner with you to help your manufacturing business innovate, grow and profit.
Manufacturing is the most important industry in WNY, ranking No. 1 in gross domestic product and No. 3 in employment. Anything that benefits manufacturing in our area is good for our regional economy and for our employment. For example, our manufacturing clients have created or saved more than 7,200 direct manufacturing jobs in WNY. But that doesn't include an estimated 4,100 additional indirect jobs—suppliers, food workers, accountants, etc.—that owe their jobs to manufacturers.
For our part, we will continue to work together with our manufacturing clients, large and small, to improve WNY's competitiveness. We will continue to introduce new services and capabilities such as Innovation Engineering and Supplier Management to support our clients.One thing we've learned from this $1 billion is that if we just make a little progress every day, month after month, year after year, eventually it really adds up!
