Partners

Partners are generally Industrial Development Corporations for a particular county.  They receive two seats on our board and receive direct marketing of their region and commercial properties. Focus serves seven (7) contiguous counties in Central Pennsylvania with a total population of 468,250 and total labor force of 221,795, and home to 17,742 business establishments. The counties and major municipalities include Centre (State College, Bellefonte); Columbia (Bloomsburg, Berwick); Montour (Danville); Union (Lewisburg, Mifflinburg); Snyder (Selinsgrove); Northumberland (Sunbury, Milton); and Mifflin (Lewistown). Focus is a direct result of a broad range of regional partners, investors and supporters that see the importance and value of regional collaboration to leverage investment and maximize returns in attracting new corporate investment that benefits our regional economy and communities today and for future generations.
