The project that built out 16,000 square feet of space in Building 4 of Harrison Place for Trek, Inc. and its wholly-owned subsidiary, Torrent, has been completed, according to the Greater Lockport Development Corp.

The project, which adds 22 jobs to downtown Lockport immediately and is expected to create another 14 over the next several years, was made possible through a loan from Empire State Development’s Economic Development Fund.

Mike Dehn, President of Trek, Inc., said, “We are thankful the Greater Lockport Development Corporation and Empire State Development were able to work together to make this project come to fruition.  Trek continues to expand and we are glad we are able to do so here in Lockport.”

“We are excited that Trek continues to invest and grow here in our downtown,” said Brian Smith, president and CEO of the GLDC.

Mayor Anne McCaffrey added, “Trek has been a phenomenal addition to downtown Lockport.  Not only have they brought jobs and led to the rehabilitation of a once blighted building, they are also great in the community. They even have a team of volunteer lock tenders that operated the Flight of Five locks this past summer,” Lockport Mayor Anne McCaffrey stated.

“The completion of this project is exciting news for the City of Lockport," said state Sen. Rob Ortt, R-North Tonawanda. "Not only are we creating new jobs, but retaining positions as well, which is equally important. Trek is an asset to the community, and by combining operations with Torrent, it will benefit taxpayers, grow our economy and continue downtown’s upward momentum.”
