Rochester is located in western New York, on the southern shore of Lake Ontario. The city is also positioned along the Genesee River, which historically provided water power for mills and today provides hydroelectric power to the downtown area.
Before European settlement, Rochester was home to the Seneca Native American Tribe. Shortly after the American Revolution, immigrants from New England came to the area in search of new agricultural land. Drawn to the potential water power of the large waterfalls on the Genesee River, Col. Nathaniel Rochester and his business partners purchased the area of land from the state in the early 1800s. In 1817, the land was incorporated as a village named Rochesterville, which was shortened to Rochester over time. The completion of the Erie Canal aqueduct in 1823 and the opening of the Erie Canal in 1825 lead to a significant increase in the population and Rochester became the first American “Boomtown”. Numerous flour mills sprung up along the waterfalls of the Genesee, and by 1838 Rochester was the largest flour-producing city in the world, quickly earning the nickname the Flour City. After the flour industry started to move west, nurseries started to pop up and Rochester’s nickname changed to the Flower City.
A number of significant brand name companies were founded in Rochester and although many have lessened their presence, they helped to lay the foundation for the diverse economy of Rochester today. Some of these include Xerox, Bausch + Lomb and, one of the most well known, the Eastman Kodak Company. In fact, at one time Kodak was the largest employer in the Rochester area. Although Kodak still has their headquarters in Rochester, their contribution to Rochester’s economy is a small compared to what it used to be. With the decline of the photographic film industry in the move to digital, Kodak was forced to lay off a significant number of highly skilled workers. Their skills, coupled with entrepreneurial spirit, led to the creation of a number of smaller high tech companies and, in turn, has helped Rochester to diversify.
Even though the manufacturing sector is not what it used to be, it is still an important part of Rochester’s economy. Food manufacturing is one of the leading industries in the sector, with over 100 food and beverage manufacturing companies in the region. Some of these include Barilla America, Kraft Heinz, and Mott’s. Additionally, Wegmans Food Market, a regional grocery store chain, is headquartered in Rochester. Within advanced manufacturing, Delphi Automotive Systems has a variety of high-tech testing laboratories at their Delphi Technical Center Rochester. Vehicle manufacturers come to Delphi to test components, engines, and emissions, among many other things. Additionally, Rochester was chosen to be the home of the new American Institute for Manufacturing Integrated Photonics (AIM Photonics). AIM Photonics is being developed through a combination of public and private investment and will once again solidify Rochester’s position as a cutting edge manufacturing center.
The University of Rochester is the largest employer in the city, supplying over 28,000 jobs to the labor force. The University of Rochester has become a leading research university, primarily through funding from the major corporations that have operated in the area, including Kodak and Bausch + Lomb. In fact, on average, the university attracts $407 million per year in external grant funding. Additionally, the university is responsible for spending an aver
