Grow Your Business

 

Foster economic opportunities in the Erie region.

 

Once a community known mainly for manufacturing, Erie has expanded into a region encompassing a variety of industries. Erie’s manufacturing sector remains prominent while health care, higher education, and tourism have emerged as equally dominant economic drivers.  We have Foreign Trade Zones and provide businesses access to shipping and receiving through Lake Erie’s port and you can tap into Erie for our plentiful water resources. 

Our focus is on direct business assistance, business-to-business connections, forecasting job demand to influence education and training, attracting new businesses to the region, and maximizing our deep supply chain for new competitive advantage. We are the one stop shop for business expansion and relocation.
