PA: Laird Technologies running out of space | SharonHerald.com

PA: Laird Technologies running out of space | SharonHerald.com | Diverse Economic Development | Scoop.it

While a Hermitage advisory board has recommended that city officials help Laird Technologies’ wireless automatic and control solutions division find a home in the city, Sharpsville Borough Manager Kenneth P. Robertson can’t imagine Laird moving away.

“Sharpsville has been their home for 50 or more years,” Robertson said, referring to Laird’s predecessor, Cattron Group International. “They are Sharpsville family. I can’t imagine them not being here, nor can the Sharpsville officials and the Sharpsville families.”

Jim Cattron founded the company in 1946 to service Motorola products. The company grew over the years and expanded into remote control systems for the mining, railroad and other industries, and has offices in Canada, China, Brazil and Germany.

In 2010, Laird bought Cattron.

Cattron has four buildings in Sharpsville and no room to grow, said Vice President of Technology Scott Lordo.

“We’re using every nook, crack and cranny,” Lordo told the Hermitage Community and Economic Development Commission Friday. “It’s time to find a facility so we can move forward.”

The company wants to hire more people and continue to grow the business, he said.

Hermitage officials would like to welcome Laird to LindenPointe technical business park, and the commission recommended that city officials and commissioners work with Penn-Northwest Development Corp., the county’s lead economic development agency, to put a project together.

“It was kind of a general thing but they blessed the idea,” said Assistant City Manager Gary M. Gulla.

LindenPointe would be a “compatible environment” for Laird because of the eCenter@LindenPointe, a technology business incubator and testing center, and existing technology companies located elsewhere in the park, Gulla said.

WI: Governor Walker economic development priorities include broadband | Wisconsin State Farmer

WI: Governor Walker economic development priorities include broadband | Wisconsin State Farmer | Diverse Economic Development | Scoop.it

When he traveled around the state, visiting companies, factories, farms and hospitals, Gov. Scott Walker said he heard about things that were important to the people of Wisconsin.

People he talked to want state government working on issues that affect economic development, create jobs and develop a workforce he told a gathering of several hundred people gathered in Madison for a Broadband Planning Symposium last week.

One of his key priorities for the state is investing in infrastructure, he said, which includes roads, bridges, airports and broadband - high-speed connections to the internet.

Clean water and cost-effective power are important to economic development, but increasingly so is broadband availability, especially in rural and underserved areas.

In today's economy, he said, people can work from almost anywhere but they have to have the infrastructure.

"In Wisconsin historically the dairy industry is why roads and particularly the county trunk roads are so much better than other states. That's part of our heritage and history."

As the roads were developed so dairy farmers could get their milk to markets, other businesses benefited, he said, and it created economic development throughout the state. To make broadband available in every part of the state is "incredibly important."

Increasingly, broadband access is even important to tourism, Walker said. People who are used to high-speed connections will take longer vacations in places where there is more sustainable broadband coverage.

"Broadband development is critically important to the economic development of the state. We need to make sure there are not just pockets of economic prosperity."

Walker said as the infrastructure is developed in the public sector, it will help if all the infrastructure is tied together. When streets or roads go in, it will save money if fiber-optic cable for broadband is put in at the same time.

The state's playbook for broadband development should look at cost challenges and find out why there isn't service in some areas.
