November 01, 2011 – A Mississauga, Ont., software consulting firm plans to open an office in downtown Buffalo that is expected to employ seven workers, the company said Tuesday.
Business and Technology Resource Group will open the office in 2,700 square feet of space in the Electric Tower on Washington Street.
Buffalo beat out Easthampton, Mass., and Media, Pa., where BTRG already has offices, for the $450,000 expansion.
BTRG officials have been working with the Erie County Workforce Investment Board and the University at Buffalo.
“We want to attract the best quality people to work for us,” said Rob Kopf, the BTRG executive who was the point person on the Buffalo project.
Thomas Kucharski, the president of the Buffalo Niagara Enterprise business development and marketing group, said the BTRG project fits within the group’s focus on advanced professional services and attracting Canadian companies to the region. The BNE helped BTRG assess potential incentives available in association with its move to Buffalo, as well as on work force development.
