"We supply our products to customers all over the world, with more than 50% of our current year’s shipments being made to Asian countries. Niagara County’s location and well-developed transportation infrastructure has proven to be ideal for handling heavyweight overseas shipments. Thus, expanding in Niagara County makes excellent business sense to a manufacturer like Taylor Devices. Our current expansion includes doubling our manufacturing areas and as always, the County and IDA came through with prompt approvals for property, mortgage recording, sales tax abatements and exemptions. In addition, over the years we have also received valuable information and aid on available workforce development and job training programs. All this considered, when it comes to helping Taylor Devices grow – Niagara County works for us!"
