Quotes from Government OfficialsCongresswoman Louise M. Slaughter: "This partnership is a big step forward in our efforts to create jobs in Rochester and Monroe County and is critically important to the future of our national competitiveness in roll-to-roll manufacturing. Combining Eastman Business Park's testing and manufacturing strength with the world-renowned research capabilities of Oak Ridge National Laboratory will bring more high-tech companies and new, high-skilled jobs to Rochester as we develop and commercialize clean energy technologies. For years, I have been bringing top officials from the Departments of Energy and Defense to Rochester to see first-hand the brainpower and infrastructure that we have. Agency leaders are impressed with Rochester and today's announcement is one of the payoffs from those visits." U.S. Senator Charles E. Schumer: "Beginning today, the U.S. Department of Energy will power up Eastman Business Park by flipping the switch that will drive more high-tech start-up companies to locate in Rochester. Leveraging a prior $611,000 federal investment to create the IMSSI Accelerator at Eastman Business Park, today's partnership with the Energy Department's Oak Ridge National Lab puts Rochester on the map as a national hub for manufacturing next-generation battery and energy storage devices and materials. Now companies identified by Oak Ridge National Labs can set up shop at Eastman Business Park and repurpose Kodak's unique roll-to-roll film manufacturing machinery and expertise to launch entirely new products and industries that will create jobs here in Rochester." Mayor Lovely A. Warren: "This partnership is another positive step in Rochester's renaissance and emergence in the 21st century economy," said Rochester Mayor Lovely Warren. "The newly announced agreement between Kodak and Oak Ridge National Laboratory will play a crucial role in our efforts to bring more jobs, safer neighborhoods and better schools to the city of Rochester."
