Growing

Nurturing a community

Relationships are important to business. Here in Buffalo Niagara, we value our loyal friends and colleagues, and all that they’ve done to help establish and maintain authentic and productive partnerships. So while we’re always looking to add to the community, Buffalo Niagara knows that it’s just as important to maintain existing friendships. That’s why we want to make sure that Buffalo Niagara keeps working hard for the whole community. After all, 80 percent of job growth comes from existing business.
