Lansing, NY - ADC's President Mr. Alex Deyhim and Managing Director Mr. Eric Van Every spoke at CHESS-U's announcement of $15 million state-sponsored grant to upgrade their facility.

"Our local economy has already begun to see the effects of the state funding from CHESS-U. ADC successfully delivered two hutches, has designed five more and as a result we have submitted proposals to Argonne National Lab and Brazilian Synchrotron for 32 Hutches and to Australian Synchrotron for 6 beam lines that will bring in over $30 million in revenue allowing ADC to expand and create more jobs." Says Managing Director Eric Van Every.

Lt. Governor Hochul, Cornell University's President Martha Pollack, and CLASSE Director Ritchie Patterson announced a $15 million state-sponsored grant to upgrade the Cornell High Energy Synchrotron Source, or CHESS. This funding is all about creating jobs in Upstate New York.

The CHESS-U upgrade is sharing the technology with local companies in order for them to develop the advanced manufacturing capabilities that are needed to expand and reach facilities around the world.

20 manufacturing companies in the Southern Tier providing parts to CHESS-U's project. The impact it has had on ADC in the last 6 months has already been shown by invitations to submit proposals on projects that we otherwise wouldn't have been invited to do. This funding can create more than 100 solid advanced manufacturing jobs in the Southern Tier." Says Business Manager Rebecca Schindler.
