Lehigh Valley experienced another excellent year in economic development in 2019.
The regional GDP reached a record-high $41.2 billion, the exciting new Made Possible in Lehigh Valley initiative was launched, and the Lehigh Valley Economic Development Corporation (LVEDC) tracked 50 business attraction or expansion projects.
All of these stories and more are highlighted in the new LVEDC 2019 Annual Report, which can be read above or downloaded here. Hard copies can be made available upon request.
The 36-page report details LVEDC’s education and talent supply efforts, Lehigh Valley’s steady millennial population growth, and information about the region’s national recognition in such publications as The New York Times and the Delta Air Lines in-flight magazine.
The annual report includes details about each of Lehigh Valley’s 50 major business attraction and expansion stories from 2019, as well as a map showing where each is located. Those combined projects created about 5,500 jobs in the region, and retained nearly 3,700 more.
Among the featured 2019 projects highlighted in the report are ADP, Air Products, Continental Cup, Freshpet, Keurig Dr Pepper, Stuffed Puffs, and Tyber Medical.
The report also highlights LVEDC’s 25th anniversary, awards the organization received, events it hosted throughout 2019, and a year-end report of commercial real estate activity in Lehigh Valley.
The LVEDC 2019 Annual Report was designed by Michelle Chrin, who has designed the organization’s annual report for the last five years, as well as its Commercial Real Estate Reports, Investment Opportunities brochure, and other marketing materials.
For the last two consecutive years, LVEDC Annual Report has won an International Economic Development Council Excellence in Economic Development award for Best Annual Report (Population Greater Than 500,000).
