JAMESTOWN – Around 27 new full-time jobs will soon be coming to Jamestown as a manufacturer is looking to redevelop a former factory on the city’s east side.
The Jamestown Local Development Corporation heard from the city’s Economic Development Coordinator and owner of Falcon Conveyor who purchased 111 Cheney Street during a city meeting on Wednesday.
The five-story brick building will be the home of a new manufacturer hub for steel belt conveyors.
To help get the business up and running, the city is loaning $93,000 from the Jamestown Local Development Corporation fund.
Additionally, owner Scott Clark will also be loaned funds from the Zone Capital Corporation and Chautauqua County Industrial Development Agency totaling $472,500.
Clark comes to the area with over 30-years of working in the field.
