    The EDC worked with us through every phase of this project to collaborate with bankers and get us the funding we needed to keep our development on schedule.
    Doug Sanford - Northdam Mill
    When we were ready to build, location was very important. It’s beautiful here, with trees and space. And we have easy access to FedEx, the Turnpike, the airport and shipping facilities, because we are an international business.
