A new technology startup company, Bak USA, has become something of a media darling, thanks to the TMG public relations team. After being introduced to us by our friends at Phillips Lytle, Danish ex-pats JP and Ulla Bak are being recognized for building up Buffalo as a trailblazer in high tech manufacturing and social entrepreneurship. The company will be producing low-cost tablet PCs and cellphones in Western New York for sale in national and international markets. The run of coverage began in July, after a press conference announced Bak USA’s admission into the state’s Start-Up NY program, which encourages new business with tax breaks and other incentives. After an op-ed placement in September, the company was featured on the front of The Buffalo News Business section on Sunday, October 26. The subsequent Monday morning, Bak USA was featured on a WKBW piece. More features are expected in December and January for this innovative manufacturer.
