GENEVA, NEW YORK – The Finger Lakes Workforce Investment Board (FL WIB) announced today that Abtex, located in Dresden, NY is September’s  “Business of the Month” recognizing the company’s  continuing contributions to the local economy.

Abtex manufactures a full range of deburring and surface treatment systems that are designed to address each customer’s specific application.  Over the past 20+ years they have expanded both their product line as well as their line of machinery. To do so they have needed to recruit high- quality talent and have partnered with the Finger Lakes Workforce Investment Board to do so.  Whether it’s accessing the On the Job Training program to train their workers or participation in any of the many recruiting events offered, Abtex takes full advantage of the services offered through Finger Lakes Works.

“As advanced manufacturing companies continue to compete for market share, providing local employers with tools to find and develop their workforce has become critical” says Karen Springmeier, Executive Director, Finger Lakes Workforce Investment Board. “Abtex recognizes the value of a highly skilled workforce and works closely with the Finger Lakes Workforce Investment Board to achieve a high standard of workforce development within their organization.”
