Ribbon cutting for Pettengill Road, Londonderry ~ 12/21/15

Sure, those were giant scissors used this morning for the ribbon cutting officially opening Pettengill Road in Londonderry; what else would you use for such great, big project?

A mere 18 months ago, the site was wooded when construction began on the road, which now opens some 1,000 acres of industrial land and creation of over 4 million-square-feet of new construction.

Within site of the Manchester-Boston Regional Airport, Interstate 93 and the Everett Turnpike, Pettengill Road will attract the kind of businesses there now – FedEx, the partnership between UPS and Pratt Whitney in developing a logistics and distribution center, and Milton CAT.

As today’s speakers noted, Pettengill Road will be the catalyst for some of the most exciting economic development opportunities in southern New Hampshire.

Expansion = Commitment to NH Manufacturing Jobs

Thursday, November 14th, 2013



We trotted down to Londonderry Tuesday morning to Wire Belt Company of America, where president and CEO David Greer wielded a pair of scissors to cut a blue ribbon on the 12,000 square foot expansion of the plant.

We like ribbon cuttings and expansions of our manufacturing plants here in the Granite State. Mostly for the reasons David said on Tuesday morning.

“We are confident it clearly expresses our commitment to keep and grow manufacturing jobs here in New Hampshire,” he said.

Wire Belt is a fourth-generation, family-owned business that has been making stainless steel wire belt conveyer systems since 1947. The company relocated from Massachusetts to Londonderry in 1989 and our friends at Business New Hampshire magazine has named it the #1 Best Small Company to Work for in NH four times in the past five years.

The new addition gives Wire Belt more room and it’s energy efficient. With further growth in mind, the expanded roof will allow for the future extension of its solar energy system.

“Anything we can do to continue to grow manufacturing has got to be good for the economy,” Greer said.

You bet it is.

Congratulations on your expansion.
