The Steuben County IDA recognizes and values its
partnerships. In 2016, the IDA worked with its business
development partners to advance projects such as the
North American Rail Manufacturing Hub in Hornell to
support business growth opportunities across the County.
- Philip Roche, Chairman
2016 was a year of significant accomplishments throughout
Steuben County. Major investments in projects and
initiatives were seen from Hornell to Corning. This work
has set the stage for additional investments in 2017 and
the creation of new job opportunities for the residents of
Steuben County.
