Wincore greatly appreciates the help that Lindsey Piersol and the Wood County Development Authority, through its PILOT program, provided in financing a new production line, allowing us to add additional capacity while boosting local employment.”

The Wood County Economic Development office is a great collaborative partner, assisting Downtown PKB by providing resources to potential small business startups and promoting vacant properties on their database for redevelopment opportunities for potential investors and developers in our downtown. Working together with their office has been a tremendous help to our revitalization efforts of downtown Parkersburg.

  • I love the new direction the Area Roundtable is taking. New leadership, fresh vision and ideas. It's nice to have people looking out for the MOV and able to put the bad press of the past behind us! We have so much to offer! Thank you! And Congratulations to the new team!

  • The Wood County Economic Development has been an invaluable resource for growing my business. As a small business owner focused on growth, I was a little apprehensive to invest. But I knew there was value in joining and I knew that just one business opportunity could open up bigger doors. I ended up getting a 32x return on my investment with my first connection alone. The WCED community has amazing people to work with who GENUINELY care about the economic landscape here. They are capable of doing so much to help businesses grow and are a phenomenal resource for any business - any industry.
