I think the EDC is very proactive. They are constantly looking for ways to help improve McHenry County, which is a major plus for businesses like Plaspros. Without the help of those involved with the EDC, building and moving into our new facility wouldn't have happened. It was the EDC's vast knowledge of state assistance and their financial programs that made it possible for me to keep my business in McHenry County.
David Georgi, President
The EDC has helped me over the years by being a great resource for me. When I have questions about legislative issues or tax laws I can turn to the EDC. They are a place for local questions and they know where I can go for answers. I also like the fact that they are a collective voice. I can work with them regarding workforce and training issues. This is helpful because there are not many people in the woodworking field. The EDC is working for baseline skills in cooperation with MCC and local high schools, putting businesses together with education. Education is what business needs. It creates opportunities.
Sandra Pierce, President/Owner
The EDC has taken a leadership role in transportation, education and workforce development issues as well. They help businesses receive loans and grants to expand and locate in McHenry County. Any success the EDC has is also a success for ComEd. If anyone has any questions regarding economic development, they are welcome to call me.
Don Westfall, External Affairs Manager
We had several good locations to relocate to in 2004 and without the EDC we would not be here in McHenry. They connected us to the County where we secured a loan for new manufacturing equipment. The terrific workforce in this county was very eager to work in our technology company and helped us grow from 75 to 100 over the past 6 years.
Joe Foley, Vice President, Sales
