“First Class Business” in the Fast Lane Tomorrow

Tuesday, June 1st, 2010

It’ll be a smooth ride on the “First Class Business” segment of Jack Heath’s “New Hampshire Today” show on WTPL-FM on Wednesday, June 2 at 4 p.m. when Capital City Limousine Owner Joey Seluk is welcomed to the program.

 capital-city-limoLocated in Concord, Capital City Limo has been a great friend to the New Hampshire Division of Economic Development, donating the use of its fleet for our “Open Invitation” (www.nhopeninvitation.com) initiative. Joey and his great group of drivers have been extremely helpful in picking up Massachusetts business owners and transporting them to New Hampshire so that our business recruiters can tell them about the benefits of expanding or relocating to the Granite State.

With service extending to the New England states and as far away as Montreal, Capital City Limousine (www.capitalcitylimo-nh.com) is a great option for weddings, proms, concerts and trips to the airport.  And, interestingly enough, limo service is actually a “green” driving option as the limo industry is all about moving people in the capitalcitystatehouserear of the vehicle with professional chauffeurs. So when you consider the rear passenger capacity of a Toyota Prius is two vs. a Lincoln 100″ or 120″ at nine, that translates into 90 pmpg (passenger miles per gallon) for the Prius and 180 pmpg for the Lincoln Limousine. Therefore the Lincoln 120″ delivers twice the passenger fuel economy than the Prius. Pretty neat, huh?

So, to learn more about these and many other interesting facts, join Capital City’s Joey Seluk, New Hampshire Department of Resources & Economic Development Commissioner George Bald and WTPL’s Jack Heath for what’s sure to be an informative and fun “First Class Business” segment. You can tune in live at 107.7 FM or via your computer at www.wtplfm.com.

NH Business Recruitment Team Spreading Green Jobs Message to MA

Friday, April 16th, 2010

On Earth Day, New Hampshire’s business recruitment team will be sharing a simple message with their friends to the south – the grass is always greener on the Granite State side of the fence.

Next Thursday, two New Hampshire Division of Economic Development business recruiters will take part in 92.5 The River’s Earth Day concert on the Rose Fitzgerald Kennedy Greenway in Boston. Featuring “green” vendors, family activities and a concert by national recording stars They Might Be Giants and Citizen Cope, the event offers the economic development team an opportunity to discuss the advantages associated with doing business in New Hampshire.

“With the recent announcement of the University of New Hampshire Green Launching Pad, an innovative green energy technology commercialization program, there has never been a better time to establish an environmentally conscious business in New Hampshire,” New Hampshire Division of Economic Development Interim Director Roy Duddy said. “The development of good paying green jobs is an emerging reality in today’s business world and the Granite State is fertile ground for companies interested in promoting environmentally sustainable practices.”

Accompanying the Division of Economic Development’s team will be Randy Bryan of ConVerdant Vehicles, a two-year-old Concord, NH-based company that converts pickup trucks and Toyota Priuses to plug-in hybrids. In an effort to draw more visitors to the New Hampshire booth, Meadowbrook U.S. Cellular Pavilion has donated a pair of tickets to this year’s Greenerpalooza III concert.

“We’re blessed to have such great partners who share our vision for a state that embraces both business growth and energy conservation,” Duddy said. “We look forward to meeting with Massachusetts companies looking to expand or relocate and to spreading the word about New Hampshire as a premier destination to do business.”
