Building Smarter in the Heart of New York

Located on the shores of Lake Ontario, Rochester and the surrounding area are considered part of the state’s Finger Lakes region. The area includes Monroe, Ontario, Livingston, Wayne, Seneca, Yates and others.

The region is dotted with contributions from some of the greatest inventors of the 20th century from George Eastman and Kodak, Joseph Wilson and Xerox and John Bausch & Henry Lomb who created Bausch & Lomb. Those industries have utilized some cutting-edge construction techniques to build their empires. With more than 150 members that work in the region, the ABC office provides supports and services from Apprenticeship craft training to safety and management development. Our office is able to provide training in over 50 different trades.

Currently, we’re offering craft training in the following trades:

  • Electrical
  • Laborer
  • Construction Essentials/CORE

This is a diverse region with specializations ranging from site work to ornamental ironworkers to electricians. With such a diverse group of companies who are experts in their trades, our Rochester/Finger Lakes members truly build their communities.
