GCEDC Incentive & RLF Applications 




I visited Genesee County and their Agri-Business Park in September of 2010, and my clients and I were quickly impressed by the Genesee County Economic Development Center (“GCEDC”) capabilities, understanding of our needs and aggressive pursuit of our business.

Scott Kupperman- President of Kupperman Location Solutions

In over 30 plus years of working at the executive level in site selection, the GCEDC is the best I have ever seen in delivering a shovel-ready site as promised; we received our site permit in 15 days! This is truly remarkable."

Rich Schutzenhofer, VP of Engineering at PepsiCo Global Nutrition Group

GCEDC Annual Meeting and Luncheon

The Genesee County Economic Development Center (GCEDC) held its annual meeting at Genesee Community College to unveil the organization’s 2013 annual report to the community. During the meeting, Genesee Community College (GCC) was honored for its collaboration in the community as the company received the Economic Development Partner of the Year Award from the GCEDC.

The approximately 300 people in attendance were provided an update on developments at the Science and Technology Advanced Manufacturing Park (STAMP) in the Town of Alabama by Mark Peterson, President and CEO of the Greater Rochester Enterprise and Thomas Kucharski, the President and CEO of the Buffalo Niagara Enterprise. Both participated in meetings last month with representatives from the GCEDC and organized labor to advocate on behalf of STAMP with members of the New York State Senate and Assembly.
