Edwards "excited" about "possibility" of German pet food producer moving into former AFA Foods building...

A German pet food producer is very interested in locating a new plant in Chautauqua County.  However... the former AFA Foods site in Ashville is competing with another location in Michigan for the $20-million project proposed by Saturn Petcare.  County Executive Greg Edwards updated county lawmakers on the Audit and Control Committee on efforts to land the new business.  The AFA Foods plant is the former Fairbank Farms location... which has been idle since AFA closed it last year.  Edwards says he and Industrial Development Agency Director Bill Daly met with the number-two man at Saturn last Wednesday... and, they're excited about the possibilities.  He says it would be "direct foreign investment in Chautauqua County."  Edwards says Chautauqua County is a finalist because it's within a day's drive of 50-percent of the U-S population.  On last weekend's "Community Spotlight" program... he said talks were very upbeat... but, he adds that state-backing is also needed.  Edwards says he's "confident" that the county... and, state... "put their best foot foward" to make the project a reality.


Chadwick Bay Industrial Park building sold to Dunkirk Metal Products for $1.8-million...

Chautauqua County has finished a "complicated deal" that will both sell... and, fill the north county's Chadwick Bay Industrial Park spec building.  The building was completed along with others around the county several years ago... but, the county had been unable to sell the structure.  County Executive Greg Edwards says... through the efforts of the Industrial Development Agency -- and, one local business -- that building has now been sold.  He says it's Dunkirk Metal Products, which is combining it's two locations, and expanding.  Edwards adds that Dunkirk Metal will be renting out the unused space in the facility to an international company, as well.  He says that's a German company, which plans on being there long-term.  Edwards says the proceeds will help pay off the rest of the spec building's costs.  That includes reducing the bond pay-off from 30 to 20 years.  Edwards says that'll save the county a significant amount of money.

William Fritz, and Peter Robinson offices upstairs.  In addition... Wright says Podiatrist Dr. Brooke Kelly was on hand... along with Michael Glenn... who is an orthopedic surgeon from the New York Surgical Hospitalist program.  She says all of their therapists were also on hand.  However... Wright says the new center has already been up and running for about a month and a half now... and, allows them to focus on outpatient-rehabilitation.  She says they moved their Medical Rehabilitation unit from the Jones Memorial Health Center... so everything... including audio and hearing rehabilitation is in one localtion... next to the hospital.  Dozens of people came through the for open house... which included health screenings, and information on making appointments or getting referrals.
