BCEDC 60 Years! History in the Making
It’s all about Retaining and Creating Jobs!
This year, 2018, marks the 60th anniversary of Bucks County Economic Development Corporation’s continuous support and dedication to Bucks County’s thriving economy. The organization has been a vital part of the robust and changing business dynamic in the county since 1958, when a handful of county officials and business men and women made a commitment to Bucks County’s growth and prosperity.
BCEDC is an integral part of the growing and changing story that is Bucks County, by offering low-interest financing and creative packages to make business opportunities and healthy-wage jobs a reality for more people.
Carl Wallnau was a BCEDC board member for 52 years and served as president 1968 and 1969. “I went on the board in 1964. At the time, we had $100,000 in seed money and one of the outstanding things we established was the Industrial Development Authority. It opened up a lot of financing that we could do,” said Wallnau of Newtown.
“You need money to create dreams,” Wallnau said.
