CAN DO launched a redesigned website aimed at delivering the most comprehensive and up-to-date information about the Greater Hazleton area for the economic and industrial development community.
The modern look and responsive design make it easy for users to quickly and efficiently navigate to the information they are seeking, including details on industrial and commercial real estate in Greater Hazleton together with CAN DO’s four parks. The website also provides valuable information to those interested in entrepreneurship, utilities, community and workforce data, and business financing options.
CAN DO Executive Vice President Joseph Lettiere said, “It’s critical in today’s economic development world to present information online so everyone from developers and real estate brokers to entrepreneurs and potential employers can easily access the information they need to make the right choice for their client or business. While much of the content remains the same from the previous website, we’ve updated all the data to reflect the current statistics and the refreshed design makes the new website more user-friendly for our visitors.”
For example, under the Real Estate menu, visitors to the site will find valuable information about each CAN DO industrial or business park, including notable statistics, infrastructure data and a downloadable map that lists all the park’s tenants.
Newcomers to the area and business executives looking to open a new location can find a wealth of information about the region under the Community menu. In addition to quick facts about the area, visitors to the Community Data page can view demographic information, workforce and labor statistics, and continuing education opportunities at some of the region’s 15 colleges and universities.
The Targeted Industries page focuses on the success CAN DO and Greater Hazleton has had in attracting a variety of businesses in the food processing, plastics and e-commerce industries to the area. Visitors can view some of the impressive facts about the performance of companies in these industry sectors who chose to locate their operations in Northeast PA.
CAN DO offers business financing services as a Certified Economic Development Organization (CEDO), as recognized by the Pennsylvania Department of Community and Economic Development. The website’s Business Finance page lists up-to-date information about the various financing programs that are available at attractive interest rates for Greater Hazleton and Luzerne County.
Additionally, CAN DO aids small business development with its financing options but it also helps startups through CAN BE (Community Association for New Business Entrepreneurship).
