SPIR: The Strategic Partnership for Industrial Resurgence

The Strategic Partnership for Industrial Resurgence (SPIR) connects corporate partners with the engineering brainpower of UB, Binghamton and Stony Brook.

Modern-Tec Manufacturing President Christopher Matyas tapped UB TCIE for guidance in the ISO 9001:2008 Standard.

Whether an entrepreneur seeking a way to bring innovations to the next level, a small firm looking to upgrade or introduce new technologies, or a high-technology firm addressing the challenges of product development and testing, SPIR can help pay for these and many other initiatives that require technically advanced assistance.

SPIR projects include:

  • Engineering R&D projects
  • Re-engineering business processes
  • Facility layout and workflow analysis
  • Accessing shared instrumentation laboratories
  • Employing graduate and PhD students

SPIR is a program of the State University of New York (SUNY) and is administered by UB's TCIE.
