Greater Hazleton, Pennsylvania, is the perfect place to locate or grow your business.
CAN DO has spent more than half a century helping businesses relocate or expand. Whether they choose to build a new structure or lease an existing facility, businesses know that they will become more competitive and more profitable with the many advantages of Greater Hazleton, PA.
We're proud to be recognized as one of the best economic development agencies in Pennsylvania.
CAN DO has developed three industrial areas throughout Greater Hazleton - Humboldt, McAdoo and Valmont Industrial Parks – in addition to the CAN DO Corporate Center, an upscale office/light industrial business park located just off Interstate 80.
CAN DO still operates under the same philosophy as it did when it was founded in 1956: We provide industry with what it needs to do business. We work with site selectors, location consultants, real estate brokers, developers and companies from the earliest stages of a relocation or expansion through government approvals, funding and construction, but our commitment continues long after the ribbon-cutting, with routine tenant check-up visits to determine companies’ needs in order to help them grow.
We've done some great things, and the numbers reflect that:
- 4,200+: Acres that have been developed.
- 25,000+: New jobs that have been created.
- Over $335 million: Increase in the area’s payroll.
- $1.5 billion+: Private investment that’s been leveraged.
Much of our success is due to what Greater Hazleton offers: A pool of dedicated employees, ready-to-build sites, tax incentives, the availability of training programs with the local colleges and a location right by Interstates 80 and 81, which offers access to many markets nationwide.
And speaking of tax incentives, businesses can find dozens of tax-free Keystone Opportunity Zone (KOZ) properties that offer abatement of most state and local taxes through 2017 and in some cases 2019! Humboldt Industrial Park has hundreds of acres of fully developed, prime industrial sites with KOZ status and has the capability of accommodating various types of manufacturing, distribution or warehousing companies. Our newest venture, Humboldt Station, was carved out of a section of Humboldt East and is ready for retail/commercial projects.
As a high-tech option that also offers tax incentives, the CAN DO Corporate Center is perfect for white-collar or back-office operations with its fiber-optic telecommunications infrastructure.
Our other parks, Valmont Industrial Park and McAdoo Industrial Park, are ideal locations for manufacturing and distribution facilities. These parks provide those same amenities: direct access to major highways, an available skilled and dedicated workforce and CAN DO's commitment to companies after they locate in Greater Hazleton. Not to mention that the remaining available sites within McAdoo also are also designated KOZs. If you are seeking a smaller park setting and do not require immediate interstate access, McAdoo Industrial Park is a great option!
Some of the most respected companies in America have chosen to locate here, including Amazon.com, Archer Daniels Midland, AutoZone, Bimbo Bakeries, Dial Corporation, The Hershey Company, International Paper, Michaels, Network Solutions, OfficeMax and Tootsie Roll.
