NYSEDC's 900 members work to build vibrant, diverse, and sustainable communities throughout New York State.
BNE personnel first met with Norampac officials in 2005 to discuss the possibility of an expansion in the Buffalo Niagara region. The project hibernated, and wasn’t rekindled until the 2008 New York-Quebec Economic Summit in Montreal. It was there that an entirely new crew of BNE and Norampac representatives discussed the company’s desire to build a new facility that would construct new corrugated box products from recycled fibers. With 43 operating units throughout the world the company could have sited this project anywhere, and engaged a global site selection consultant to conduct a worldwide search.
