Some of our recent major projects include:

  • Matalco - This Canadian-owned firm  was looking for a site to expand in the Great Lakes region. The Regional Chamber presented viable properties, workforce information  and a list of incentive offers to the company.  The company chose Lordstown for its $100 million aluminum re-melt plant. The facility recently began full operations in 2016. 
  • Lordstown Energy Center - The Lordstown Energy Center recently broke ground on a $900 million facility that  will produce enough clean energy for 800,000 homes and proive more than $13 billion in economic impact over the next 40 years.  The facility is expected to open in 2018.  The Regional Chamber assisted the company with selecting the property as well as the permitting process on local and state levels.
  • Nordson Xaloy - With expansion plans looming, the company considered multiple sites to consolidate their three-state operations.  The Regional Chamber worked with the company to find the right location which included an attractive incentive package.  The company chose Austintown over other states, and is expected to be fully moved into the new building in 2017.
