In every sense of the word, January 15, 2015 was a busy day for Buffalo Niagara Enterprise (BNE), as team members attended Grand Opening festivities for not one, but two local companies: ConServe and Bak USA!
While Bak USA is a brand new start-up company located in downtown Buffalo, ConServe celebrated its 30th anniversary while unveiling a new facility located in the Cheektowaga’s Apple Tree Business Park. Headquartered in nearby Fairport, NY, ConServe is a leading provider of accounts receivable management and innovative recovery solutions for colleges and universities, government agencies and private lenders. BNE helped ConServe’s expansion into Buffalo Niagara back in 2009.
At that time, the company employed around 100 people at its former location on Walden Avenue in the Town of Lancaster. Its new facility, with 25,000 square feet of office space, will be able to accommodate 250 employees and more than double its size. This is a result of its success in the Buffalo Niagara marketplace and a testament to the quality of our region’s workforce.
In fact ConServe’s President, Mark Davitt, credited the region’s “extensive pool of talented solution-oriented professionals and a booming economy” for the company’s prosperity. BNE has been marketing the region’s available and skilled workforce since its inception, and companies like ConServe appreciate what that can mean to their bottom line.
While ConServe’s new facility is impressive and truly something to celebrate, the most important message behind the expansion is that they are hiring! ConServe will be adding 100 new jobs with an average yearly salary of $50,000. For further information on these new positions, visit www.conserve-arm.com.
