HERKIMER, N.Y. -- Around 20 businesses from around Herkimer County gathered at Herkimer College for a manufacturing and agriculture showcase.

The showcase is designed to help connect local business with each other, rather than looking for the same services outside the state.

Partnering manufacturers and suppliers can also serve as a catalyst for regional job growth. The goal is to keep the businesses that are here, have jobs here, and continue to stay in the area.

The showcase is being hosted by New York State Economic Development not-for-profit FuzeHub.

“This is a little bit different; we have solutions for them where we have a one-on-one match between the resource and the company. The B2B is a little bit different. Instead of the companies coming to the resource, we have the resource here going to the companies. So, the companies are all there and so resources would go and talk to them and interact, and then they're free to interact with each other company to company,” said FuzeHub NY MEP Director Everton H. Henriques.

Around 100 regional manufacturers and food, beverage, and agriculture producers attended Thursday's showcase.
