A private Canadian company based just across the border near St. Catharines is setting up shop on Buffalo's East Side. The expansion project will help create jobs and keep the doors open at a manufacturing facility that was about to close.
Businessman Tony Van Es has purchased a troubled manufacturer at 50 Wecker Street just off Bailey near Delevan. He is renovating the facility, buying new equipment and planning to add as many 60 employees over the next few years.
Van Es says they will be good-paying jobs.
