Lawrence County’s future prosperity is about its entrepreneurs, business owners, and leaders who are growing our local economy every day, one job at a time. Since 1955, the Lawrence County Economic Development Corporation (LCEDC) has worked to attract, retain and grow businesses and quality jobs for the residents of Lawrence County.
We serve the County’s townships, boroughs and the City of New Castle through our business assistance and attraction programs, such as site identification for expansion and relocation, providing information on workforce training and financing options, and Brownfield redevelopment and Greenfield site development activities. Our passion is to market the County locally, regionally, nationally, and internationally to attract new business owners and help Lawrence County remain a viable and exciting landscape. We look ahead to support emerging growth and innovation industries that will create the jobs of tomorrow and give critical support to the key industry clusters driving Lawrence County today.
As the only countywide economic development organization with the mission to attract, retain and grow businesses and jobs, the LCEDC offers many opportunities for people to get involved. LCEDC collaborates with its partners and alliances to influence public policy, and help businesses grow.
