Finger Lakes Textile manufacturing facility ribbon cutting set in Waterloo

Arc of Seneca Cayuga would like to announce the Official Ribbon Cutting of the newly expanded Finger Lakes Textile manufacturing facility. The ceremony will take place on September 18th at 1:00 pm at Finger Lakes Textiles located at 1885 Danaren Drive in Waterloo.

Significant funding for this project was provided by Governor Cuomo’s Nonprofit Infrastructure Investment Program, Finger Lakes Regional Development Council, Empire State Development Corporation. Major support was also provided by the Allyn Family Foundation, Fred L. Emerson, Golisano Foundation, Stanley W. Metcalf and J.M. McDonald Foundation. Locally Relph Benefit Advisors, Community Bank, N.A., Lyons National Bank, Five Star Bank, Cayuga Lake Bank, Chemung Canal Trust, One Group and Seneca Meadows were generous supports along with individual donators. Together we raised over $900,000, which not only paid for all of the construction costs but also went toward the acquisition of three new digital manufacturing machines. The continuous contributions have set us on a path toward an exciting future.

Immediately following the ribbon-cutting, a reception will be held with light snacks graciously provided by Arc of Seneca Cayuga’s community learning center catering. Tours of the textile plant will be available, here you will be able to view the new state of the art equipment and meet some of the fantastic employees that make our operation a success.

Finger Lakes Textiles employs over 100 members of our community. It is a workforce that includes 60 individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities.

On behalf of the more than 1300 individuals whom we serve, their families and our dedicated staff, we hope you will be able to attend this happy occasion. If you can join us for this joyous event, kindly rsvp to Jennifer Rodger, jrodger@arcsencay.org or call (315) 856-8152. We cannot wait to see what our future holds!
