Grow Your Business

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 port access for shipping and receiving through Lake Erie’s port and you can tap into Erie for our plentiful water resources.
