ALBANY — Cedric Glasper, president and CEO of Mechanical Rubber in Warwick, joined manufacturers from all over New York State for the 2017 Manufacturers Lobby Day in Albany on March 1.

Participants had the opportunity to address specific policy issues, such as Worker's Compensation and regulation, taxes and economic development, workforce development, and energy with state legislators.

Glasper was part of the Taxes/Economic Development group that discussed raising Real Property Tax Credits for manufacturers from 20 percent to 100 percent, which would provide $200 million in tax relief annually to state manufacturers; moving the implementation of Start Up New York to an existing economic development organization; as well as requiring New York State "Buy American" contracts to source in-state manufacturers first.

“It was a very successful event,” Glasper said. “I am very optimistic about the future of manufacturing in New York State.”
