Senator O'Brien tours ThermoFisher, high-tech local employer

PENFIELD, N.Y. -- Senator Ted O'Brien recently toured ThermoFisher's Penfield production facility, learning about how the manufacturer of equipment and supplies for scientific and research labs uses advanced technology and cost-saving strategies suggested by employees at every level of the organization to prosper.

"I was thoroughly impressed with the innovation I saw at ThermoFisher," said Senator O'Brien.  "From the remarkable technologies they employ to implementing employee suggestions that have resulted in significant cost savings, ThermoFisher represents the best of 21st century manufacturing. I'm proud to represent a company that is truly changing lives, both here in Rochester and the Finger Lakes region and throughout the world. I look forward to continuing to be an advocate for and working with businesses like ThermoFisher in Albany."


Sen. O’Brien represents the 55th district in the Senate, which is made up of the eastern half of Monroe County and the western half of Ontario County, including much of the city of Rochester.
