EDC Congratulates City of Springfield
The EDC would like to congratulate the City of Springfield for two solid economic development announcements this week. The first announcement was that plumbing supplier F.W. Webb will purchase 14 acres in the Smith & Wesson Industrial Park to build a two-phase distribution center at a total investment of $9 Million. F.W. Webb will increase its work force by 40 jobs when the expansion is complete. The second announcement was that the new Berkshire Bank Financial Services Center will open next month on the site of the former St. Joseph’s Church on East Columbus Avenue in the City’s South End. Colvest Group developed the 22,000 square foot facility at a cost of over $7 Million. We applaud Mayor Domenic Sarno and Chief Development Officer John Judge for their diligence in pursuing economic development opportunities.
