Goldman Titanium, 2 others make pitch to ECIDAby chocieni
A Buffalo manufacturer of titanium-based products hopes to expand its local operations.
Goldman Titanium Inc. is working with the Erie County Industrial Development Agency and City of Buffalo officials on an expansion project that will see the company add 12,000-square-feet to its Dorothy Street plant and headquarters. Goldman is adding a new line of processing for titanium scrap.
The $645,000 project could see the company add eight new jobs in the next year. The Erie County Industrial Development Agency's directors are expected to consider an incentive package for the project when they meet on Oct. 15.
Goldman currently has 48 workers at its Buffalo plant.
At the same meeting, the ECIDA directors will also consider an incentive package for the Wendt Corp. that wants to expand its Cheektowaga plant.
The agency's directors will also consider an incentive package for Sustainable BioPower LLC, a Cleveland-based company that wants to construct a 16,000-square-foot in West Seneca's North America Center business park.
Sustainable BioPower plans on investing $5 million on the project that will create 7 jobs initially. It takes waste products like food scraps and through a technical process and converts them into energy that is sold to National Grid for its power bank.
The company, earlier this month, received a similar incentive package from the Niagara County Industrial Development Agency to build an operation in the Summitt Business Park in Wheatfield.
