OUR MEMBERS ARE TALKING

We are honored to be hearing some of the great feedback from our business partners. They are the fuel to our economic fire.

The Wood County Development’s Office relationship with Hino can be aptly described as strong business partner. Lindsey and her team take a collaborative approach to build a solid understanding of our business requirements which has contributed to our growth in West Virginia. Their timely response to many requests has supported creative solutions which has supported our aggressive expansion schedule. We look forward to continuing this partnership as we explore future opportunities."

Steve Stalnaker(Hino Motors Manufacturing U.S.A., Inc. Sr. Vice President & Plant Manager )

As a CPA, I have worked with my clients to grow their businesses. I had no idea how to grow a business community. Lindsey and Kate know how to grow a business community! They have taught us that it’s not just data, or information, or the new big business. It is a package of support for business growth and new business development where they serve as the quarterback, handing off the opportunities available from the many resources in the area, whether that be state, county or city resources, financing options, or the business insights and expertise that is needed to solve critical development issues. Anyone wanting to start, grow or transfer a business to Wood County will find Lindsey, Kate and Wood County Development indispensable in achieving their goals."
