Potential Project Could Attract Modern Manufacturers

YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio — Chuck George is the inaugural recipient of The Business Journal’s Brain Gain Excellence in Entrepreneurship Award, created to recognize individuals who have leveraged local resources to kick-start fresh ideas into promising businesses.

Among the more recent projects George has in mind is potentially developing a 100,000-square-foot spec building on property in Warren. Manufacturers or suppliers today demand modern buildings, while the Mahoning Valley has mostly older, antiquated structures available, he explains.

“We hope to break ground next year,” George says. “Companies will bring younger people with them – engineers, trades. I see this as part of our ‘Brain Gain’ opportunities.”
