An impressive array of projects helped fuel the Buffalo Niagara Enterprise
to another “better-than-expected” year, but a national site selector
warned the region should not get too complacent with its recent streak
of positive economic development news.
The BNE, at its annual meeting, said that it played a role in helping
bring 10 new companies to the region, or assisting others in their
expansion efforts. The companies, collectively, created 522 new jobs
while retaining another 1,003 jobs. Those gains represent $253.21
million in new private-sector investment and have a total regional
economic impact of $324.55 million.
The 14-year-old Buffalo Niagara Enterprise is the region’s economic
development marketing agency. Its staff not only has put the region on
the map of many site selectors, they also help craft incentive packages
to bring new investment to the area. More here.
