Welcome to Buffalo Niagara
Whether a company has been here for generations or just relocated, business growth seems to be contagious throughout Buffalo Niagara. Not only is this growth due to our area’s resources and renowned market access, it’s also thanks to our close working relationship with both businesses already here and those who want to relocate.
A Geographic Advantage
Buffalo Niagara is a strategic location here in Western New York—we’re on the Canadian border and within 500 miles of 40 percent of the U.S. population. Our waterfront, touching Lakes Erie and Ontario, plus Niagara Falls, makes us a shipping and logistics hub, and provides our sustainable energy and plentiful water. Our in-place infrastructure completes the metropolitan area’s reach, with highway systems, transportation, utilities, school and technology. (Buffalo was ranked among the Top 25 Un-Wired Cities in the U.S.)
A Talented Workforce
We don’t just have Great Lakes and great infrastructure, we have great minds who are studying and researching at our colleges and universities. New York State’s Center of Excellence in Bioinformatics is located here, as well as the Roswell Park Cancer Institute, the nation’s first comprehensive cancer research center. No matter the profession, Buffalo Niagara is home to a highly productive, skilled workforce, with a well-deserved reputation for an unbeatable work ethic.
