Yellow Roadway Corp. plans to invest over $1.5 million to lease, build out and equip an approximately 18,000 square foot, 83 person credit collection facility in Cheektowaga, NY. The project is expected to retain 264 existing jobs and create 83 new jobs.
Yellow Roadway Corp., founded in 1924, has grown to annual sales of over $8 billion with locations throughout the US, Canada and Mexico. The company employs over 2,000 in 29 locations across New York State.
"Yellow Roadway's decision to expand in Cheektowaga re-confirms the strength of one of Buffalo Niagara's greatest assets, its highly qualified and available work force," said Thomas A. Kucharski, President and CEO of Buffalo Niagara Enterprise. "Our work force, training incentives and strong transportation and logistics infrastructure combine to make the region a natural location for the company's long term growth."
In consideration of its commitment to New York State, Yellow Roadway Corporation is eligible to apply to Empire State Development for a Capital Grant of up to $150,000 to assist with lease costs, build out, furniture fixtures and equipment associated with set up of the facility.
