The Lincoln Family of Companies announced today that they will expand the Western New York Foreign Trade Zone facility in Lackawanna with an additional 20,000 square feet.
“If there’s one thing that our family has learned in more than a century of doing business, it’s that you can never slow down or get complacent,” said Tim Palisano, president of WNY Foreign Trade Zone. “Our expansion of our Foreign Trade Zone facility in Lackawanna is the next step for our company, and we’re pleased to be moving forward on the project, which will commence as early as this month.”
Lincoln’s $1.8 million investment at the Lackawanna facility recently was approved for $360,000 in tax incentives by the Erie County Industrial Development Agency. The project will kick off over the next few weeks with environmental testing and design. Weather permitting, the expansion could be complete as early as late fall.
“As our regional economy grows, as it currently is, warehouse space continues to be needed,” added Palisano. “We’re pleased to have the opportunity to expand our offerings, and add to the region’s available warehouse capacity.”
