Welcome to the United States!

If you've been thinking about expanding your presence into the U.S. marketplace, there's no better location than the Buffalo Niagara region.  Strategically located within only 800 kilometers of 40% of the US population, Buffalo Niagara has the resources and experience to help you access one of the world's biggest marketplaces. There has never been a better time to make this move. Interest rates are extremely low and there is a growing trend by US companies and citizens to "buy American" whenever possible, increasing the value of  the "Made in the USA" label.

Why Buffalo Niagara?

Buffalo Niagara is in the center of a key international market. (The region's superb logistical infrastructure was recently recognized by Expansion Management magazine.)  Buffalo Niagara is home to seven international ports of entry (4 auto, 2 rail, 1 water), facilitating $80 billion in annual trade between Canada and the United States. That's nearly 15 percent of the total trade conducted between the world's two largest trading partners.

Who will I find in Buffalo Niagara?

Being at the center of this international market gives Buffalo Niagara businesses a major logistical advantage.  Furthermore, it means easy access to a host of professionals with expertise in international business, including attorneys, bankers, and human relations professionals.
