Rochester, N.Y.
Rochester, dubbed the "world's imaging capital" thanks to the presence of Kodak and Xerox, is also a hub for light and precision manufacturing. Nearly 80,000 locals work in the sector, and there are about 1,400 manufacturing businesses in the area - 90% of which have fewer than 100 employees.
